One of the brilliant things about video is that it can be played back in reverse. And if you're clever about it, no one is any the wiser...unless you want them to be.
For this month's Video Challenge, create a video that celebrates footage played back in reverse. Your entire video need not be in reverse, but it should be an integral component of what you create.
How Do Video Challenges Work Again?
To keep the projects reasonable, all clips must be 45 seconds or less and begin with content, not slates, credits, colorbars or countdowns. They'll be due March 14th by 8am Eastern. Results will be posted on the 17th.
Become a member of our Vimeo group and add your video by the deadline. We'll then go through the submissions and highlight our favorites on Gizmodo.
To you recognize our lead clip by Michael Durham? It was an entrant in our inaugural Video Challenge. Obviously, it's a time lapse, but it's also a perfect example how a film's meaning can be changed simply by playing it backwards.
