One Minute Wonder

60 seconds flat.

A video portrait series featuring wondrous people relating their individual story in 60 seconds flat.

The problem a lot of us face today is identifying ourselves beyond our work. One Minute Wonder was an idea that we had to try to help ourselves and force us and the people we initially knew to tell their story in 60 seconds flat.

We wanted to create short films about the people we were fortunate enough to know and meet, wherein they would try to answer as elaborately as possible just one question “Who are you?”

“Our role is like much of what we do, to simply facilitate, to paint a picture of the individual in their surroundings, often this can nearly be done without words.”

Sixty episodes, sixty seconds.

For many this was seriously tough, sometimes too tough, with the interviewee defaulting to talking about their work. Some One Minute Wonder’s we’ve created have never made it online, some shouldn’t have made it online.

We finished the project with 60 episodes, covering actors, architects, entrepreneurs, painters, sculptors, musicians and many, many more.

“Erykah Badu, Sir Peter Blake, Daan Roosegaarde, Theophilus London, Laura Pannack, Nelly Ben Hayoun, Yoann Lemoine and many more. ”
