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 moment I quit my first job.

  • That moment is buried deep within my vaults... But the final day of High School was Close! That final moment where the bell rang!

  • Either my birth or my death, I don't/won't remember either but both are the greatest moments a person will have

  • Something funny, probably. Laughing with people I love is always a perfect moment.

  • My perfect moment from my life would be the first cries I heard when my twin boy and girl were born.

  • If I had to choose one perfect moment from my life to make into a one-second film it would be when I realized I could control my dreams, becoming lucid. When it happened I immediately decided to fly and forget everything else. It only lasted for a moment, but I swear I'll never forget it.

  • 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 kids smiling.

  • 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?"

  • My son being born.

  • The last hug I ever recieved from my friend Kristin.

  • Our wedding - the smooch

  • 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!

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

  • 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 ;)

  • The first time I made a child laugh.

  • One time I accidentally stapled my finger. That would be pretty quick.

  • 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.

  • My 1-second moment would be marching into the Olympic Stadium in 1984 as a competing athlete

  • When i was hit by a car passing a stop sign at 40 miles an hour and I was on motorbike. Best action scene ever...triple flip and broke his windshield with my helmet and then just got up like nothing happened. Couldn't believe how lucky I was an really makes you appreciate you're alive
