I love the sound. My girlfriend uses the hammock to relax and the sound tells me she’s enjoying herself.


for a weekend project.
Weekend Project: One Minute of Reflection

It’s easy to get caught up in the brain-frying, bank-breaking hustle and bustle of the impending holiday season. What better time to stop and reflect on something understated, overlooked, yet absolutely indispensable in your life? If you’ve got a minute to spare, that’s plenty of time to participate in in this classic Vimeo Project.

The rules are simple:

+ Find something in your surroundings that you’re grateful for — something that deserves thanks.
+ Since we’re focusing on the little things in life, we’d like you to shoot on a macro scale. For a more in depth explanation of all things macro, check out this lesson from Vimeo Video School: Get creative, get close, get as abstract as your heart desires!
+ Once you’ve found and framed your subject, shoot for exactly one minute.
+ There can be no camera movements (panning, tilting, etc.) or editing, and you must make use of only the original sound.
+ Your video must be added to the Weekend Project Group ( by Monday, November 12th at 11:59 PM EST

Not convinced that a project so simple can render stunning results? Check out Erich Meyer’s “Fireworks on the Water” video:

The winner of this Weekend Project will receive a free Vimeo Plus account for one year! If you’re already a Plus member, you can gift the Plus account to whomever you choose and we’ll give you an extra 5GB of weekly upload space for your account. The runner-up will receive an extra 3GB of upload space, Plus account or not. Please note: The Vimeo Staff must review your submissions before they appear in the Group, so if you don’t see your video in there right away, don’t fret!

Good luck, friends! I can’t wait to see all your beautiful little moments.
