To celebrate the recent publication of my new book Film in Action for DELTA Publishing, I’m sharing a number of activities you can try out with your students. This activity encourages students to create their own one-second-long films about something which is beautiful or important to them and to then talk about why they chose this moment to film.
If you can’t find a compilation of one-second-long videos, here’s a compilation which has worked well with my students.
Seconds Of Beauty – 1st round compilation from The Beauty Of A Second on Vimeo.
Use this compilation or choose your own, and then move onto the activity as outlined below:
You might like to hold an awards ceremony for your students’ films. You might also like to create – or even better, get your students to create – a compilation video of all their films.
If you try this activity with your students, do please let me know how it goes (in the Comments box below)!
