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

  • I was in 7th grade. My friend Kevin, who was in 8th grade, got a guitar and started playing. The moment I saw his guitar and how it sounded, I was hooked. I got my first guitar in June that year. An Alpine White Fender Squire Stratocaster and amp. The moment I strummed my first chord would be my one-second film.

  • One perfect moment is coming down from the top of the first hill on a roller coaster; so much anticipation, excitement, giddy joy. It's all adrenalin and uncontrollable laughter. If I could live in that kind of moment for a lifetime…

  • For myself, personally - moment I looked into my son's eyes for the very first time

  • The feeling you get right before you walk on stage to do a show.

  • The birth of my son.

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

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

  • My one second film would be a cannon ball.

  • 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 ;)

  • My son being born.

  • When i got a case of the giggles during my wedding ceremony

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

  • When my eyes teared up the moment my son was born.

  • the moment my daughter was born.

  • The moment my son opened his eyes and looked up at me

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

  • Probably just a lazy summer sunset with my family.

  • If I could capture one perfect second of my life on film it would definitely have to be the last hug I ever gave my father before he died.

  • The second you get the feeling you want to dance, in any random fashion... Even if it sucks and not care who sees.
