The Beauty of a Second

Add many seconds of beauty to your class with a short film and related project. The resource centers around a competition based on one-second segments of film, and the final compilation that came from the contest. Pupils identify moments in the film, choose five moments that they think are the most beautiful, and make their own one-second videos to share.
