“Experiment With Life”: World’s Shortest Video

Every day we are doing some experiments with our life. Every day we are trying to fill some different colour in our life to overcome the same black & white life.

On ‎October 13, ‎2010, using these philosophies of life Dinesh Shivnath Upadhyaya from Mumbai (India) made an experimental video "Experiment With Life". This video is unique & in real sense an experiment because it contain no characters, no dialogues, no sound & not even credits.

Dinesh Upadhyaya who is a teacher & writer by profession is also a serious movie watcher. After watching great classic movies from great directors like Satyajit Ray, Hrishkesh Mukherji, Guru Dutt, Roman Polanski, De Sica, Federico Fellini, Alfred Hitchcock, Roberto Benigni made a deep impact on him.

He always wanted to do something with movies. Since movie making is most expensive & unit work, he decided to make such a movie/video which requires no money but fulfill his dream.

Sometimes a single image or a single word or a slogan or a symbol enough to express the whole story. He used this formula in making his odd but unique video. Being M.Sc. in Physical Chemistry, he spends more than 8 years in chemistry lab. So he used scientific approach to express his meaning of life. In his shortest movie, unknown hands filling Violet colour chemical from a conical flask to a test tube. Here he symbolically wants to express that test tube is our life & we are trying to fill colour from conical flask to in it. Here conical flask may be our society, our surroundings or may be whole world. Unclear background expresses the uncertainty of our life. He intentially used Violet because this "cool" colour is the highest colour in the visible spectrum & it relates to self knowledge/ spiritual awareness. It is the union with our higher self, with spirituality, and our higher consciousness.

He totally aware that most of the viewers were going to criticize his creation, going to laugh on his creation but he has faith on it.

He claim that "Experiment With Life" is world's shortest meaningful video. Reason behind his claim is strong because the length of movie is just 0.4 second i.e. 0.0067 minute i.e. 0.00011 hour.

Details of Shortest Video

1] Length - 0:00.4

2] Format – MP4

मुंबई। आदमी प्रसिद्ध होने के लिए क्या-क्या नहीं करता। अब देखिये न, मुंबई के रहने वाले दिनेश उपाध्याय ने अपने मुंह में एक साथ 93 पेंसिल घुसाकर एक नया विश्व रिकॉर्ड ही बना डाला। ऐसा करके उन्होंने अमेरिका के टोड डेफेजियो का गिनीज वर्ल्ड रिकॉर्ड तोड़ दिया।

आपको याद दिला दें कि अमेरिका के टोड डेफेजियो ने अपने मुंह में 70 पेंसिल्स घुसाई थीं। उसने यह रिकॉर्ड 13 सितंबर 2010 को बनाया था। इस रिकॉर्ड को बनाने के लिए पूरी पेंसिल को कम से कम 5 सेकेंड तक मुंह में रखना होता है। इसके लिए रबर बैंड का इस्तेमाल किया जा सकता है। एक महत्वपूर्ण शर्त यह भी होती है कि पेंसिल को बिना किसी बाहरी सपोर्ट के मुंह में रखना होता है। वाकई में अद्भूत काम किया है दिनेश ने।
