The Assignment was to make a one second video that tells a story. This sort of constraint presents an interesting challenge that can have surprising outcomes. I chose to use a 1 second video of my Friend Jacob. In this video he is simply being Himself. It’s strange how sometimes a single second can tell you more about a person than knowing someone for a long time. Not to say that you don’t know your best friends or Family better than any other person but a single second has some sort of honesty behind it. A second is enough time to see something but just short enough to not judge a person. There is also something nostalgic about seeing a second long clip, it sort of makes you try to imagine what was happening in that given situation and lets you relate to it in how you perceive it. I’m not sure if my video is the best example of all this but the Video that inspired the assignment is definitely a good example of how 1 second can be nostalgic in a sense.
