New weekend challenge!

Follow Me

This will be my third one after the object and character study. Sorry it’s been a while sine the last two!

In honour of this weekend’s Amsterdam DSLR meet up I want you to make a short film that for you either epitomises where you live or captures the flavour of it. You can do this in any number of ways. How is it up to you! You can film it on any camera, no restrictions!

The only rule other than to follow the above guidelines is to make sure this is shot specifically for this challenge. There in no point submitting something you have already shot as there is no challenge in that. So please at the end of the film have some text saying it was shot for the Bloom Challenge 3!

Upload to the vimeo group here!

This is challenge not a competition. The winner is you as it gets you off your backside, off the internet and out filming! 🙂

You have until Tuesday 2359 EST to have this uploaded to the group. Always good to have a deadline or you never get anything done! Good luck and I can’t wait to see what you come up with.

Here are some of the previous entries!

  1. Hey Philip,
    Damn. Off to the States this weekend for Christmas – and I know exactly what I’d want to be shooting for this. Double damn!
    I guess I’ll just do it for my own edification when I get back in the New Year.
    Merry Christmas all.

  2. Hi guys my first time posting here ,I made a research and monfrotto does a livelling bar for tripod 190 b series
    I just ordered one 556B (110€ pretty expensive)
    But very worth it in my opinion ,will be very easy now to livell your dolly
    Hope that helps
    Ciao luca

  3. Finished with my weekend challenge video, but having problems with FCP export 🙁 will try and try and try, I spent the weekend shooting and I hope there is a bit of tolerance on the deadline! Please Philip!!!
