Jury report: This one minute is a splendid piece of image engineering, its content is communicative and layered, the marvelous visuals refer to the original context of film: the vaudeville. This one minute plays with the concept of time and the final message is easy to understand though very true.
Let us all be more flexible!
The film combines simple statements/recommendations with a flexible clock in the literal sense. The visual effect is accomplished by a so-called time warp effect, which also from a technical perspective uses time flexibly: The resulting video is generated from the recorded video by mixing original frames from different points in time, according to their position on the screen.
