'POV - Sports' Vimeo Weekend Challenge
Capture a sport or any sort of movement from a unique point of view.
Vimeo Plus account

Due August 26th, 2014 - For this Weekend Challenge, Vimeo is asking you to focus on using POV shots as artistic tools.

Point of View (POV) is a shooting technique that shows the perspective of a scene from a character or object's position in the setting, whether it's seeing the world through someone's eyes or experiencing the action of orbiting a person as a jumprope.

When you're involved in the scene, the act of watching becomes more immersive than if you were watching everything as a bystander. The most common use of this technique is the "Leading Actor POV," where the audience experiences everything through the subject's eyes. 

But POV isn't limited to views from the actor's head. Think up some unique shots that really enhance the story you're trying to tell. Perhaps you're experiencing the world as a soaring bass guitar, or a delighted pup!

The Rules
   + Film a video from a unique point of view, using Sports (be it Baseball or just human motion) as a theme. Remember that only videos made specifically for this Challenge will be considered.
   + If you add music, make sure you use a song you or a buddy created, or something from the Vimeo Music Store! If you do choose to use a Music Store song, please throw a link in the description.
   + Add this at the end of your video's description: "Created for the Weekend Challenge: vimeo.com/groups/weekendchallenge"

Remember, only videos made specifically for this Challenge will be considered.
