The one perfect moment to put in a one second film is very difficult to just think of, but I will try to do my best... I am doubting between a few... One is the moment i first met my first true love, after having talked to him for about half a year over the internet I decided to go visit him in the USA (I am from the Netherlands myself) and the first time that I actually saw him might be that perfect moment to put in a one second movie. Another one that I would consider is my coming out to my mother, and then in particular the part where I would say "mom, I'm gay", that should take about a second... but is that really a perfect moment? It was definately a moment of relief though, and went perfect in every way possible... A last one I would consider is the moment that I bought the ticket to visit that guy in the USA, because it took me quite a while to click that mouse button to confirm the transaction, since I was only 19 at the time and hadn't told anybody about buying the ticket or the purpose of the ticket yet, and since it was something bigger than I had ever done before. That moment has changed my entire life. Ever since I have changed from someone who would just let life come over him, to someone who takes initiative and doesn't just take life for granted the way it is. Ever since I feel more complete, more free, and happier than ever before and truly have the feeling that everything is possible, the feeling of "the sky is the limit." I think that moment, which took place about 2 years ago, is for myself probably the perfect moment, because it changed my life so much. But I wonder how interesting it would be to make a one second movie out of that... I guess in one second indeed a lot can happen... Sorry it turned out to be a little long ;)
One time I accidentally stapled my finger. That would be pretty quick.

The moment my son opened his eyes and looked up at me
3:33 am on the 4th of August 1999, for me to remember :)
My one second film would be a cannon ball.
Hm. Probably the time I reached the crest of a hill on the north Michigan coast, expecting dense forest, and saw this: http://www.kgcphoto.com/Pictured_Rocks_National_Lakeshore/Grand-Sable-Dunes-3.jpg
The moment I saw my prom date coming down the stairs in that beautiful blue dress. Ah, young love.
The birth of my son.

If I could choose one perfect moment from my life to make into a one-second film it would be the time when I had my first kiss. I was 12 years old and I was at a school dance with this girl that I liked. I asked her if I could kiss her and she said yes. I kissed her quickly on the lips and pulled away. She smiled and so did I

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!?!?!
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.
The most perfect moment in my life was when I was 10. I was a military brat living in Norway and I discovered Gummi Candy, when I went on a walk with some friends to a corner market. it was getting dark, the street lamps turned on an we came out of the store with a pound of Gummi Candies. It was such a beautiful night and we walked all the way home with a smile on our faces, even though some of the Gummies were pretty sour -- but good. I've been addicted ever since. I'm still a child at heart.
Perfect moment was standing in the middle of an empty parking lot at 4am realizing I could do anything I set my mind to.
That moment is buried deep within my vaults... But the final day of High School was Close! That final moment where the bell rang!
The first time I made a child laugh.
