Parallel Lines: Video Contest Using Only Six Lines of Dialogue
Parallel Lines was a video contest run by electronic company Philips, requiring entrants to adhere to a very specific set of rules. All videos had to be under 3 minutes and could only contain six lines of dialogue: “What is that?,” “It’s? a unicorn,” “Never seen one up close before,” “Beautiful,” “Get away, get away,” and “I’m sorry.”
The first video, Baby Time, is by Cédric Petitcollin and was selected as the People’s Voice winner. The second video, Porcelain Unicorn by ywilco105 is incredibly well done, and surprisingly moving – it was selected as the Grand Prize Winner by Ridley Scott.
There are a lot of videos on the YouTube Page, and you can see all the submissions in the Gallery section. Interesting to see how many variations there were, all based off the same core requirements.
