Upside Down

August 3, 2009 - By 

Welcome to an all new five second projects. This week’s theme is “UpsideDown.”Create a short project based on the theme and post it in the comments to be entered into the contest.

New To FiveSecondProjects… Photos!
Finally, I added a photo section of the Five Second Project for all you photographers. I am using Flickr group to aggregate all of the submissions to the project. Head on over to the Flickr Group and submit your entry. Bare with us as we figure out more of the specifics of how the photography work will be displayed. Yeah, I know that FiveSeconds doesn’t make sense for photography, but the idea is the same. Create an image based on the theme. This will get better and better, I swear. Keep in mind that only new photos taken especially for the project should be included in the group. DO NOT add old work. This should be an excuse to get out and shoot NEW photos based on the theme.

Why Should You Enter? Check out the video…

What Are Five Second Projects?
We all want to make cool shit for our reel right? Sometimes you just need a theme to get you started… Some rules to fight against. Use the theme “Upside Down” to make a five second motion piece and link it in the comments of this blog post. “Shout Box” submissions will not be found and will not be added to the channel. Please be sure to post a link in this post’s comments to ensure me seeing it.

It’s really great to see so much participation. Tell a friend about the five second projects and get them involved too. Don’t forget to push yourself to try something new every week. What about a new piece of software or technique you have wanted to try? One more thing, try to tell your story without just putting “Updside Down” on the screen in text. Use the theme to create a concept. Take control of your creative output and Make Cool Shit!
