• My entry in Mont Blanc’s “The Beauty of a Second” contest, to be judged by Wim Wenders (I hope!).

I’m not sure why Mont Blanc cares so much about the birth of the chronograph watch, but apparently it’s a big deal to them because they are holding a contest to celebrate its 190th birthday. Called The Beauty of a Second, the contest lets anyone submit a one second clip to be judged first by just about anybody and then, if it survives, to be judged by Wim Wenders. I’m no videographer, much less a film maker, so my clip is low on technical merit, but the content is true beauty to me: it’s Tim Young doing a take for a song that will appear on my next album.
