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.
