With the Tribeca Film Festival kicking off last Friday in New York City and all the famous actors, directors and producers taking center stage, we were interested in learning about a contest at the festival for aspiring filmmakers that brings together the best in creativity and technology. The sub-competition is called #6SecFilms and aspiring filmmakers were called to submit brief-as in six seconds fast-films with a beginning, middle and end using Twitter’s video Vine app. Forty filmmaker finalists were selected last Wednesday out of more than 400 submissions in four different categories: genre, series, auteur and animate. One winner from each category will be selected on April 26 by jurors including director Penny Marshall. In addition, winners will receive a mention and showing on TribecaFilm.com and $600.
Vine was launched in January 2013 and the app allows users to create six second videos in a continuous loop. As bloggers for CreativityTech.com, we can’t imagine a more concise way to fuse artistry and technology, and loop extremely short videos of clips fused together. For a quick laugh, check out the below vide0 from the genre category titled “Relish this Moment” by Zach Frost. For those who wish to chuckle with a side of classic rock, take a look at Pete Heacock’s “#Howto make #pinkfloyd “money” with baby toys.”
How can you not love at least some of these creative clips made with Vine technology? It’s just fun.
