Engaging with celluloid film allowed participants a chance to explore a visual language that is specific to the medium. With Ek-minute, we presented an opportunity for filmmakers, artists and scriptwriters to engage with film, to challenge themselves in creating a strong, concise story that fits the one-minute format, and to create a hands-on learning environment. There was no scope here for a second take, there were no changes, only one person looking through the viewfinder and they only saw their images after a week. It's as conscious as it gets in filmmaking. It's a test of rigor, of planning and of clarity in thought
