Be Serious for 30 Seconds

Fred Armisen asked videographers to submit short serious videos. There are rules, plenty of them, which makes me wonder what he will eventually do with all these videos.

Rule 1: It has to be serious.

Rule 2: It has to be 30 seconds or less

Rule 3: No more than 2 people in it

Rule 4: At least 1 5 second dramatic pause

Rule 5: At least 1 cutaway to an object

Rule 6: Do your best acting

Rule 7: It needs to have a door slamming

Submit your own videos (make sure to include the words “Be Serious for 30 Seconds: somewhere in the title), and check back here to see what people have made.
