Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHP3x5

Weekend Hashtag Project is a series featuring designated themes & hashtags chosen by Instagram’s Community Team. For a chance to be featured on the Instagram blog, follow @instagram and look for a post announcing the weekend’s project every Friday.

The goal this weekend is to create a 15-second video made of three five-second clips. Some tips to get you started:

  • You can use your five-second clips to tell a story in three parts. As starting points, think about a sequence with a beginning, middle and ending, or experiment with filming the same subject in three different ways.
  • You can also get more abstract with this project. Create scenes that all explore the same theme or emotion in very different ways to convey a message or feeling. Don’t be afraid to leave narrative behind.
  • Don’t forget to pay attention to the sounds around you as you film. Your audio will be a key part of telling your story.

PROJECT RULES: Please only add the #WHP3x5 hashtag to videos taken over this weekend and only submit your own videos to the project. Any video taken then tagged over the weekend is eligible to be featured right here Monday morning!
