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

  • Perfect moment...driving with my father to Wisconsin in 1969. The conversation turned to death for some reason and he told me that he hoped to live a long life, but had done all he wanted thus far, was happy with how I was turning out, and hoped that, when his time came, he went as quickly and painlessly as possible. 3 days later, he was walking down the street and died.

  • What an interesting question...it took me some time, but this is what I came up with: When I was maybe 9 or 10 years old, I went to 'Take your daughter to work day' with my dad, who was a satellite engineer at Lockheed Martin. I spent the day having a great time doing the activities and seeing the exhibits Lockheed had set up, but for some reason what I remember best was getting to eat lunch in the cafeteria with my dad. I had this Reese's ice cream novelty thing for dessert - peanut butter ice cream covered in chocolate and shaped like a peanut butter cup. My perfect moment was when I was sitting there with my dad in Lockheed Martin's cafeteria, and I took my first bite of that ice cream (which was delicious). I don't know why that memory is so vivid, but it's one of my very favorite memories of time spent with my dad (who died of pancreatic cancer in 2001, when I was 16 years old)

  • At a family friends place, when I was around 6, I stood ontop of a hill. Ready to roll down the hill, I crouched on my knees and leapt. As the world warped round and round in my eyes, time was still. There at the bottom of the hill was my mother, with open arms, ready to catch me as I came down. Childhood bliss.

  • Ah, tough one. Toss up between the moment I met my girlfriend Dominique or the moment I traded one red paperclip for a pen shaped like a fish.

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

  • Christmas morning, while I was still a kid and naïve. That one second when I'd wake up and remember what day it was.

  • Waking up not alone for the first time.

  • perfect moment of my life will be seeing my name on this film!

  • My suggestion for perfect moment: The moment you start dreaming before you actually fall asleep

  • Ryan Nicholls last minute header against Leyton Orient in a soccer game in Wales in 1994.

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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.

  • The first time I held my son.

  • breakfast.

  • My first breath.

  • The first time one of my very autistic students used his words and asked for an apple

  • I am shirtless, extremely muscular and handsome, standing on the beach glistening in the setting sun, playing the mandolin. A seagull poops on my face.

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

  • 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).
