GISHMAS 2019 – Item 1 – Stocking Run

It’s time for the annual GISHMAS Stocking Run! Fill small holiday stockings, packages, or bundles with necessities like socks, water, food, mittens, etc and a few small, joyful things (small stuffed animals, playing cards, paperback books, candy, a greeting card… you get the idea) for people experiencing homelessness. Then, hang them up in an area where they will be found or if you prefer, hand them out in person to those in need.

Item 100 – Burn Something Negative

TIMELAPSE. Write a phrase on a piece of wood of something negative you say about yourself to silence yourself or hold yourself back. Burn the wood and the phrase in a fireplace or fire pit. Use the ashes to write something affirming about your strong self on a sheet of white paper.

Item 29 – Blindfolded Fine Dining

(UP TO 20 SECONDS: You may speed up and edit video) The big trend in experience-based restaurants has you eating in total darkness, but these gimmicky restaurants charge a fortune. We’re bringing it to the masses: Take a dinner date to an upscale restaurant – the fancier, the better – wear white. There must be a white linen tablecloth. Sit across from each other and feed each other dinner while both of you are blindfolded. You must be serving one another red wine too.

Item 107 – Trump Ice Cube Mosaic

TIMELAPSE. Using ice cubes made opaque by adding milk and dyed with food coloring, create a large mosaic of Donald Trump’s face. Behind the cubes is a written message. When the ice melts, the message is revealed. (Start the video with the completed mosaic, not its construction.)

Behind the Scenes

Item 149 – Trudeau Melt

(Time-lapse up to 25 seconds.) Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau gets a lot of attention for being super hot. Frankly, it’s starting to detract from his ability to govern. Cool things down by making a sculpture of Trudeau out of Canada’s most ample resource: ice. A couple of caveats: the frozen water you use must have something added to it to make it opaque, and inside the ice must be something emblematic of canada that doesn’t melt (for example, a hockey skate). The timelapse must be of the sculpture melting revealing the object hidden inside. Make sure to frame your shot with a fitting or neutral background so that the final product really pops.
