Synopsis: How much of a story can you tell in a 1 second video? Inspired by this:http://vimeo.com/32071937

I am really intrigued by these 1 second, 5 second, 30 second video assignments. They’re quick and fun. I couldn’t really think of an inspiring late night 1 second story but I think it’s pretty much self-explanatory once you watch this video. By the way, the person in this video is none other than James Cruz. 🙂 1 star

P.S. I did make some enhancements on the video for brightness because it looks so dark, but I don’t think it really made much of a difference. But if you couldn’t tell what’s going on, it’s James rolling around on the floor.

Synopsis: Make a supershort, 5-second film; basically enough time for one gag, bit, or joke. See examples (ALERT: Not G-rated, generally) athttp://5secondfilms.com/. Or alternatively, try your hand at creating a 5 second version of a major movie.

Whooot 5 second film. Featured in this video is James playing an xbox game called Halo with his roommate (I didn’t include James’ roommate but you can hear him). Every weekend (I would like to say every other day) James would play Halo with his roommates and since he was playing tonight, I thought it would be a good idea to record him for this assignment. I think Halo’s the epitome of gag since it’s just not very appealing to me. (but James would argue otherwise) 3 stars

P.S. Only 5 more stars left till I reach 30 stars!! 🙂
