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 - Catching a fourth queen on the river to beat a full house, when I was all in for all my money.

  • The time I snuck a ride on the Goodyear Blimp. You usually have to pay dozens of thousands of dollars to get on that thing. I sat by the pilot.

  • My first breath.

  • 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.

  • That night I was sitting on an old wooden fence in the middle of nowhere in Texas. It was windy.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • My kids smiling.

  • It would have to be a smile.

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

  • 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.

  • 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).

  • 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.

  • 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.

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

  • 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.

  • When my wife finally said “I do”. It only took me 11 years to nail her down.

  • I'm not sure that any moment can ever be perfect. That's half the intrigue of the film.

  • 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.

  • The moment I stepped into the airplane leaving Korea for Toronto when I was 9 years old. It was the biggest turning point of my life, not to mention the perfect moment I would like to be caught into a one-second film.
