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

  • 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

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

  • 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.

  • one perfect moment in my life is when me and my dads side of the family were all sitting around a camp fire over the summer. We all sit around talk and tell jokes. (and of course eat smores)

  • I do martial arts , and am a part of the national demonstration team. I remember we were giving a show at this sea side city In Greece and we had our platform right over d edge of a cliff and all that there was to stop us from falling was a tiny wood banister . Story cut short the new guy on the maintenance team forgot to nail the last piece of platform , and some one , unknowingly put a 1x1m cushion carpet over it not knowing it was barely balancing on the edge. In a couple of minutes inside the show i saw myself tilting over , smashing right through the wooden banister , falling 2 storeys high , expacting a splash into the water that never occured. The cause ? On my not so smooth descent down my ranking belt got caught in a root and I was left gobbersmacked and barely able to breath hanging 1 story up , and looking down at another one. A rescue boat came after 15 mins , but it sure took an hour to get me down from there , or at least so it seemed ! ... Why is it my perfect moment ? Cos thats when I learned to laugh at myself , and silly as it may seem , that moment shaped life as I know it , life is a beautiful mess ! perfection is sooo overrated ! imperfections are the main ingredients for a perfect moment!

  • 3:33 am on the 4th of August 1999, for me to remember :)

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

  • Well most of the perfect moments in my life have lasted longer than 1 second. Except for the most important moment. I always say you live life in inches. An inch here or an inch there you will have totally different results. The night i met my wife, we were standing in a crowded bar. I looked to my right just as she was looking to her left and we locked eyes. It was only for a second, but that second was all i needed to know that she was the one for me. I put my arms around her the next time she walked by and that was all she wrote. We were married a year later and are going to be making the great film of life together. Could you imagine if i would have looked to my right a second to late or to soon. We might have never seen each other and I have no idea where i would be today. ;-)

  • If I could choose one perfect moment from my life to make into a film, it'd probably be this one . . . no wait, this one . . . or maybe this one. Frankly, each one seems to be a little better than the last.

  • Carefully stroking my little brothers tiny hands when he was just a sleeping baby and I three years old. It was such magical that this little creature with those fragile fingers came into my world.

  • Waking up not alone for the first time.

  • It’s a toss up between the first time that I ever held my son and the first time I held him after returning from my deployment in Iraq. Both moments are beautiful and vivid and as close to perfect as possible.

  • My kids smiling.

  • My one second film would be a cannon ball.

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

  • One perfect moment is hard to pick... I am a great believer in small moments and memories and feelings... I guess a couple of the top ones are: the *pop* fizzz of a bottle of bubbly opening when you know you deserve it... (or even if you don't) the moment on waking when you are snuggled under the covers of your warm bed and know you don't have to get up yet.... but if I had to pick just one... then it's my first ever road trip, through the South Island of New Zealand, just after getting my driver's license and buying my first car - awesome.

  • When I got my wings the first time I was ever on an airplane. I think the captain, or a male flight attendant, gave me a pin with wings on it, and he actually pinned it on my shirt. I felt super special - I was 4. I like flying. The moment the pin went through the fabric, that is what it would be.

  • 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.

  • Probably just a lazy summer sunset with my family.
