If you had to choose a perfect moment from your life to make into a 1 second film,
what would it be?     read more moments

  • The first time I made a child laugh.

  • O' Were that the camera were rolling when the Tar Kettle burst into flame engulfing me in a 10 ft' ball of instant sunburn blaze orange translucent flame, one lock of hair singing its way toward my scalp like a fuse, the polyester bandana melted and frozen into a protective helmet for the rest of my hair...all in about 1 second.

  • The day I left my hometown and got on a greyhound to persue my college education.

  • A perfect moment in my life would be with my dad flying me around the house while in my Superman costume when I was six.

  • My perfect life moment happened only a couple months ago. I spent the semester travelling through Northern India with some other students. We stayed in an orphanage for 2 weeks and were encouraged to engage the children in English, so a friend and myself decided to put on a musical. We made up a fun show based on the Mario Brothers which incorporated easy American songs. The show was eventually performed in front of the entire school that the children attended. It was a huge success and I realized just how much I had come to care for these kids in only 2 weeks. But just as the kids were finishing their bow, the woman in charge of the orphanage declared that the directors (me and my friend) were now going to perform a song. We didn't know what she was talking about and my friend promptly ran out of the room leaving me alone. I had no idea what to sing. I picked a song from the Broadway show Wicked that I had just performed for my Grandmother's 80th birthday: For Good. I only chose it in the moment because I knew all the words, but as I sang, I realized just how pertinent the words were:" it well may be, that we may never meet again in this lifetime, so let me say before we part. so much of me is made of what I learned from you. You'll be with me like a handprint on my heart." it was wonderful

  • One perfect moment is coming down from the top of the first hill on a roller coaster; so much anticipation, excitement, giddy joy. It's all adrenalin and uncontrollable laughter. If I could live in that kind of moment for a lifetime…

  • A perfect moment in my life? Walking down the street in Chicago, passing a guy playing the tuba, only to realize it was 'killing me softly' that he was performing...ON THE TUBA!?!?!

  • My first and only skydive from a moving airlane. It was a great experience to conquer a fear by taking a risk. Then I would watch my 1-second film every morning when I first wake up.

  • The first time I stepped foot in Iraq. Stepping off the C130 on to the tarmac seeing the heat radiate from the ground and fealling my feet begin to burn through a half inch of rubber. This was a perfect moment to sumerize the next 365 shitty days.

  • A really good that's what she said joke.

  • One evening, I noticed the moon (very nearly a full moon) had just risen. It was a pure white, in a very pale, light-coloured blue sky. The sky was still light, so I knew the sun must be up, but very close to setting. I spun around 180 degrees. The sun was just over the horizon, deep red, and the sky a beautiful orange. I stood there for many seconds, turning around and around. Both views were absolutely enchanting, one side pale and delicately-coloured, the other side rich and deep, and both of them in the sky at the same time. That they were exact opposite sides of the horizon, so I could only look at one at a time, was part of the magic.

  • A moment from my childhood. Sitting around the kitchen table with my parents, brother, and grandparents...laughing. Happiest moments of my life. I tear up to think about them.

  • breakfast.

  • It would be the first or the last. I just haven't figured out which. The first one because I had no idea how cool everything would be that was coming down the way, and it was just open, or the last one because hopefully there will be a smile that will come across my face acknowledging how cool it was.

  • Holding my first child in my arms for the first time.

  • The moment I saw my prom date coming down the stairs in that beautiful blue dress. Ah, young love.

  • I'm not sure that any moment can ever be perfect. That's half the intrigue of the film.

  • I am shirtless, extremely muscular and handsome, standing on the beach glistening in the setting sun, playing the mandolin. A seagull poops on my face.

  • He picked me up by the throat and slammed me into the wall, just inches above the stereo speaker, leaning his full body weight into my throat, strangling me. Without thinking, I pulled my knees up tight to my chest, planted both booted feet firmly against his chest and kicked him away. His 5' 9", 225 pound, body-building, championship black belt self flew backward across his living room and landed with a satisfying "THUMP" on his back in the floor as he wheezed, "Where'd you learn THAT?"

  • If I could capture one perfect second of my life on film it would definitely have to be the last hug I ever gave my father before he died.
