The entries were viewed at the 2018 micromovie festival on 24th September at Paxcroft Mead Community Centre.
The micromovie festival was to encourage and promote very short videos.
The upper limit was 100 seconds although much shorter videos, 60, 30 or even 10 seconds were very welcome - advertisers do it all the time.
The title micromovie was meant to suggest that the videos were not merely short but complete in themselves and carry a weight beyond their brevity; rather like mini sagas, postcard short stories or haiku.
The Results There was general agreement was that the 100 second micromovie produced a different video to the classic 60 second video and the majority of the video made use of the extra time.
The winners were selected by a vote of all the viewers and, before giving those results, it is important to say that the voting was very close and very spread across the entries, with in most cases only a single vote separating winners from other videos.
The overall winner was: The Seed by John Clare The runner up: Around the World in 80 Seconds by David Skull
