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

  • Becoming a father was a perfect moment. Another one was watching the last second tic off the clock as we were about to win our first NBA championship.

  • 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.

  • 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).

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

  • The first time I held my son.

  • Jessica Barker - 7th grade ;)

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

  • 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

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

  • 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.

  • 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. ;-)

  • 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.

  • getting asked out

  • A second of film = 24 frames. It would be 12 frames of the first time I saw my oldest daughter and 12 frames of the first time I saw my youngest daughter. Perfect.

  • meeting my mother for the first time when i was 12 years old.

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

  • The moment I held my first daughter for the first time.

  • My first breath.

  • The moment I quit my first job.

  • The moment I saw my prom date coming down the stairs in that beautiful blue dress. Ah, young love.
