Weekly(ish) Challenge: Video Haiku!

Here we go again, pals. This challenge was borrowed, once again, shamelessly (but with permission) from the fine folks at Vimeo.

Come on, let’s get poetic.
Video Haiku!
 

As you may know, haikus are a type of Japanese poetry composed of just three phrases (or lines) with a syllable structure like the (not-so-great) poem above:

5 syllables
7 syllables
5 syllables
 

So, for this Challenge, your video structure should be similar to the poem structure, like this:

Just stick to that structure, and make sure there’s a haiku in the video. You should write your own poem, or use someone else’s with their permission. You can read the haiku, or with text on (or in) the video.

Here’s an example:


+ Make a 17-second video with one 5 second clip, one 7 second clip, and one 5 second clip.
+ Use a haiku, either in the audio or with visuals like titles or text in the video.
+ Use only video you have recorded yourself – no borrowing other people’s work.
+ If you add music, make sure you use a song you or a buddy created, or something from theVimeo Music Store! If you do choose to use a Music Store song, please throw a link in the description.
+ Upload and post your video to the Weekend Challenge Group by ***Monday, March 30th at midnight.
+ Only videos made specifically for this Challenge will be considered.
