30 second films about favourite objects you own – make them creative! anything goes

I’ve recently put out a request for anyone and everyone to create a film in which they tell the story of something they own and care about. Or indeed, something you dislike but own and cannot seem to let go off, for whatever reason.

This is all part of a research project, read more here.

I suggested people might prefer to film their object up close and turn it around and about to share with the camera.

But I have another suggestion – you could see the method of making the film as a creative process. You could use VINE, you could make a gif.

You could stand on your head, display you precious object on a turntable, hold it in your mouth. (note: could be tricky to speak though!)

The key thing it must do is share the story of your object in no more than 30 seconds, and have you talking about the object – how you do this is up to you. And if you are really shy or hate the sound of your own voice, ask someone else to do it for you. Anything goes.

Make it fun to do!

Have a look at the ones we have already uploaded and do your own. And don’t forget I can help you if you get stuck.
