in #steemit-project5 years ago

Maybe you saw it.

Maybe you didn't.

But now is your opportunity to participate in a

site-wide Steemit art/video

This initiative was presented by @winstonwolfe and he's got 4 posts to explain what he's doing.

Here is a sample of what he's talking about - Just A Second - 1 Second Every Day


Frankly, I think it's genius.

Honestly, I know it's a lot of hard work to put something like this together... and he wants to do it for Steemit.

And you know what? I'm rooting for him because getting 200-300 people to participate in a coordinated event is like herding cats. It's a Herculean effort and the reception has been...lacking.

I meant it when I said "Get your ASS in gear."

And I want to help YOU get your video clip submitted. HOW? Great question. Glad you asked.

You've probably got a camera on your phone. RECORD SOMETHING. For best results, record in landscape orientation. (That means turn your phone on its side).

I will post 7 days of 1 second video challenges. I'm even going to be organized and tell you which day is what activity. You ready?

December 5: FUNNY FACE << today's 1-second video challenge

December 6: ACTIVITY (cartwheels, jump rope, walking, etc.)
December 7: KIDS (video you kids doing an art project or homework or making funny faces - whatever you think of.)
December 11: YOU AT WORK

And to help you even further...

You can email me your video clip. I can trim it, load it to Vimeo, and submit it to @winstonwolfe on your behalf. I cannot make this any easier for you. Seriously

You can DM me on Twitter at merej99 and I'll send you my email address - or send me a link in Dropbox.

I did it.

Here is a quick sample of what I did this morning. Look at me! I didn't shower. My work desk is a mess. The lighting is bad. Screw it. I did it anyway. Maybe I'll do another but this is about as authentically ME as you're going to get. You don't have to be pretty or perfect. You just have to be involved.

@winstonwolfe's deadline: December 16

Thanks for the boost! lol I wondered where the replies were coming from today.
I love that people are digging this idea. What I've got put together so far looks great, and I can't wait to post the finished product! :D

Hopefully you get more submissions. I just posted a 1-second video challenge through @collabornation as well.
Do you need videos with sound? I love @lloyddavis' submission but he's talking.

That's okay. There are others who are talking as well, but it flows so quickly that it still looks good. :)
Thank you again for promoting this! I'm on my way to a total of about 40-50 clips so far, and I may only need about that many more or so.

Resteemed :)

That's amazing, Tim! Thank you. :)

Bravo!! Congratulations for actively contributing with the platform and the community, a true example to follow. Many thanks my great friend @ meriq99 for spreading and sharing this venture.

@jlufer - let's get some video from you!
It could be something like hugging your daughter or stirring the pot while you cook. :)

I uploaded this video of my granddaughter, I hope you like it

So adorable! I will forward it to @winstonwolfe to be considered :) Thank you for playing along in the collaboration. Check out @collabornation too that's where I will be posting the daily challenges for videos.
