Let’s play a game!
I assume most people are familiar with the surrealist game of the Exquisite Corpse, where a piece is passed around and collaboratively constructed, one segment at a time, with each collaborator only seeing a small part of the previous contribution, yes?
It occurs to me that this might be a fun exercise to embark upon in the new year here.
Possible “rules” of the game:
Initiator creates a 40 second video and passes the final 10 seconds to the next participant.
This person takes these 10 seconds as a starting point for a 40 second video. Smooth transitions from previous video encouraged but not required. The first frame of the 10 given seconds must remain intact but thereafter they can fade/mix/sample/re-sample/loop/distort/mangle/add/subtract to their heart’s content. No limitations as far as gear or methodology (though use of some LZX gear somewhat expected).
They then pass their final 10 seconds to the next person and so on.
All participants send their full contributions to the initiator, who edits together the first 30 seconds of each into one continuous video, adding a final 30 seconds of their own to the end.
Anyone want to play?
(Or have suggestions for better methodologies? If not many people want to do it, we could maybe at least extend the length of individual contributions.)
