The Value of a Single Second

MontBlanc is hosting a contest, in honor of the 190th anniversary of the invention of the chronograph.

I'm not sure what this has to do with pens, except for the fact that chronograph literally means "time-writer," nevertheless, the contest is in full swing.

This contest fascinates me because in order to enter, you must submit a film of your own making...
but it can't last more than a second in length.

24 lousy frames, 29.97 at best.  What can you capture in that single, perfect, moment in time? And is it even enough to register on one's consciousness when viewed?

Entitled "The Beauty of a Second," the contest is being presented by renowned filmmaker Wim Wenders. Here is MontBlanc's film promoting the contest.

What would your perfect second be?
