Very Short Film of the Day: To celebrate the 190th anniversary of the chronograph, German luxury goods manufacturer Montblanc and advertising agency Leo Burnett Milan invited filmmakers to capture and submit “one-second-long moving pictures” of moments they considered beautiful.
Many responded, and a showreel of 60 hand-picked clips was crafted (above).
There will be two additional qualification rounds, with 20 clips selected from each round. The 60 finalists will be judged by director Wim Wenders, and one lucky beauty beholder will win a trip to the 2012 Berlinale as well as a Montblanc Nicolas Rieussec chronograph.
May the best second win.
