  • 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 ;)

  • Anytime I smile. It's a great smile

  • A perfect moment that I would make into a one-second film is when I was little and my mom would drive me and my little brother around for hours in the car looking for Santa. She’s awesome, because now I’m older so it amazes me that she would drive around that long with us and pretend to hear/see Santa’s sleigh just to make us happy. But that’s moms for you.

  • 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.

  • Coming to America.

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

  • The first time I held my son.

  • If I could choose one perfect moment from my life to turn into a one-second film, it would have to be the moment the sun rose above the horizon after my night of camping in the Sahara outside Timbuktu. I'd woken up early that morning and was in the process of collecting sand with a young Tuareg child as the sky exploded from an inky black into a brilliant orange. I still have a vile of that sand at home.

  • The moment my son opened his eyes and looked up at me

  • When I was 13 years old, and I was in the hospital room while she was about to give birth to my beautiful baby sister, and as I held her hand, her faced turned from a pale white to an angry red...I'd never seen someone's face turn colors so rapidly before, it scared and astonished me. It was awesome.

  • 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

  • laying on the floor of the Yosemite valley, watching meteor showers and falling stars.

  • Years ago I took a trip to Japan with my family. My father, brother and I climbed up Mt. Fuji on a gorgeous summer morning, the first day of the climbing season. Standing on the side of the mountain looking out, the view and the entire experience were incredible. This was a perfect moment for me!

  • Perfect moment was standing in the middle of an empty parking lot at 4am realizing I could do anything I set my mind to.

  • Back in Massachusetts a few years ago, I was riding down a country road on my motorcycle in early summer. The temperature was perfect, the sun was shining, the mosquitoes hadn't come out yet, and for just a second I didn't give a crap that I was in massive debt and was waiting tables for $2.63 an hour plus tips and had no idea what I was going to do with my life. That was a pretty sweet moment.

  • The moment for me would be the precise moment my brother passed. I don't know if you would consider that perfect but it has had the most profound effect on me. He was only 12 but lived a life of full of pain. That second felt like an hour of the most unimaginable experience that you can never prepare for.

  • 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.

  • Probably just a lazy summer sunset with my family.

  • The moment my goddaughter Alexis was born and I got to hold her.

  • breakfast.
