One Second of Beauty — from Montblanc

posted by Nell Minow

Montblanc, maker of some of the world’s most magnificent pens (I am a pen nut and adore lovely fountain pens), has invited everyone to submit short films about beauty.  Really short — just one second.  There are two ways to win their competition.  First, you can submit your own film.  Or, you can view the submissions and create your own playlist.  Renowned director Wim Wenders will select the best.  Even if you do not want to enter, it is worth checking out the submissions so far to be inspired by the beauty our wonderful world has to offer and — just as important — the capacity of us as humans to appreciate it.

What does beauty mean to you?

    For many of these, a one second movie is not much different from a photograph. Lots of others seem to be sharing the results of a camera left on at random. But for those few who were self-aware and thoughtful, one second can be very evocative and thought provoking.
