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

  • Perfect moment - Catching a fourth queen on the river to beat a full house, when I was all in for all my money.

  • Life is filled with so many perfect moments. My most important seconds that I want to record right now are with my 16 month twin girls Kate and Annie. The loves of my life. Second by second these moments fly by never to be repeated exactly alike again.

  • That night I was sitting on an old wooden fence in the middle of nowhere in Texas. It was windy.

  • At a family friends place, when I was around 6, I stood ontop of a hill. Ready to roll down the hill, I crouched on my knees and leapt. As the world warped round and round in my eyes, time was still. There at the bottom of the hill was my mother, with open arms, ready to catch me as I came down. Childhood bliss.

  • breakfast.

  • The 'perfect moment' would be when you first dive into a body of water.

  • For me, my perfect moment would be the first time I drank Pepsi. It's sad that this is my only 'perfect moment,' but it is by far the best.

  • Definitely the moment I got my acceptance letter from college last fall- simply amazing.

  • 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.

  • 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

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

  • What an interesting question...it took me some time, but this is what I came up with: When I was maybe 9 or 10 years old, I went to 'Take your daughter to work day' with my dad, who was a satellite engineer at Lockheed Martin. I spent the day having a great time doing the activities and seeing the exhibits Lockheed had set up, but for some reason what I remember best was getting to eat lunch in the cafeteria with my dad. I had this Reese's ice cream novelty thing for dessert - peanut butter ice cream covered in chocolate and shaped like a peanut butter cup. My perfect moment was when I was sitting there with my dad in Lockheed Martin's cafeteria, and I took my first bite of that ice cream (which was delicious). I don't know why that memory is so vivid, but it's one of my very favorite memories of time spent with my dad (who died of pancreatic cancer in 2001, when I was 16 years old)

  • I know what it will be... but I have not experienced it yet. I promise to share it once it is mine to give.

  • The moment when I realized that happiness doesn't come from what I always thought it did. That it comes from helping others and being honest with yourself.

  • I was in 7th grade. My friend Kevin, who was in 8th grade, got a guitar and started playing. The moment I saw his guitar and how it sounded, I was hooked. I got my first guitar in June that year. An Alpine White Fender Squire Stratocaster and amp. The moment I strummed my first chord would be my one-second film.

  • 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…

  • If I had to choose one moment from my life to put on film, I would probably use a shot of myself taking a big-air jump on my mountain bike and eating dirt on the landing (it hurt, both times, but it's a pretty good description of who I am).

  • 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?"

  • The day that I was able to become one degree away from Kevin Bacon in the Kevin Bacon game.

  • 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.
