YouTube Play – This bi-annual Creative Video event is an amazing project of YouTube in collaboration with the Guggenheim Museum and HP, “to discover and showcase exceptional talent working in the ever-expanding realm of online video.” Users all over were invited to submit their unique creative video, and currently the Guggenheim has narrowed it down to the top 125 videos, displayed on the YouTube Play Channel.
As a means to track the technical and innovative advances of users on the Web, the YouTube Play event happens only once every two years, and this makes it all the more special and exciting. Out of the current 125 finalists, up to 20 will be chosen by a jury of art, design, film and video experts. These winners will be displayed at the Guggenheim museums (NY, Berlin, Venice and Bilbao, Spain) throughout October 2010.
Want to sample some or all of the 125 videos that made it to the list? Simply visit the YouTube Play Channel, or start with Some of My Dreams by Tadas Vidmantas (categorized as Narrative), below, that I especially adored.
