Lights, Camera, Action!

Filmmakers, videographers, film fanatics, and aspiring creatives, introducing the "1-Minute Film Challenge"!.

Whether you've had an interest in film production or already involved, the purpose of this challenge is to inspire and motivate our inner filmmaker and our fellow community creatives.

The challenge is to direct and edit a 1-minute film that's inspired by the theme of the week.



Week #1 theme: Food

Directed by @hilladigahackles
Original Post:


The theme for this week is:




  1. Direct and edit a 1-minute video inspired by the week's theme.
  2. Create a post with your entry uploaded on YouTube. Feel free to upload on DTube (@dtube) as well (support the blockchain!). *YouTube is mandatory.
  3. Include the tag #filmchallenge and submit your entry in the comment section.
  • The length of the film must be more or less 1 minute.


Tips & Resources

First, you'll need the basics:

  • Your smartphone or a camera.
  • Video editing software. I've listed four FREE video editing software.
    • OpenShot (Windows, Mac, Linux): Download here.
    • VideoPad (Windows, Mac): Download here.
    • iMovie (Mac): Download here
    • Movie Maker (Windows): Download here.
  • For sounds effects, either you can record them yourself or you can utilize these free online resources: Freesound, ZapSplate, AudioMicro, SoundEffects+.
  • For background music, Free Music Archive, Jamendo, or Noise Trade.

Here are some suggested ideas and concepts you can consider for inspiring your creative inner filmmaker:

  • Pick a genre. For example, science fiction, fantasy, comedy, horror, action, drama, film noir, romance, etcetera.
  • You're not limited to a conventional film. Perhaps, you have an idea for a commercial. Or even a music video. Or an exciting opening title sequence intro to an imaginary TV series. Or how about an abstract experimental 1-minute film? Anything goes! Be creative!

Cut! That's a wrap folks!



This is really cool @scuzzy I might have a go but I'm gonna tag my buddy in here as he is a really talented film maker.

@buttcoins fancy having a go at this mate? :-)

Looking forward to your entry sir!

Ain't gonna be able to make it in the 1 min film comp this week matey. But I have got an entry into the poetry slam comp :-)

Hi @scuzzy... I changed my mind and made a short film today. Here is my entry:

P.s. my bitshares account is the same as my steemit username: raj808

I love these idea of small films it might even allow me to participate one time, as it's less stress than even a five minute film making!

That's exactly why it's limited to 1 minute. Five minutes would require even more time. However I was thinking the other day, limiting the time limit to 1 minute would also push your creativity. Hope to watch your entry :D
