New Five Second Project: Coffee and Triangles

March 13, 2009 - By 

The new “Five Second” project has been announced. The theme for this week is “Coffee and Triangles.” Use this theme to inspire any short motion project. Ever wanted to try a specific technique or even something just crazy? Now is your chance. Upload the final video to Vimeo and post the link here. I will make a channel with all of the entries.

Need an excuse to make cool shit this week? Well, you just found one.

Check out last week’s project, “Five seconds and Orange.”

UPDATE: One day later and there are already quite a few entries. Check out ALL of the videos at the new Vimeo channel or here below.
