TV Dictionary

The TV Dictionary is a collection of short video essays that has its own dedicated Vimeo showcase. It already includes several dozens of entries, dedicated to television series as diverse as Lost and Scooby Doo. The above example was made by Libertad Gills.


The project was initiated by Ariel Avissar and its basic concept is simple and elegant. Here’s the prompt Ariel gave all contributors: “Try to capture the essence of a television series using a single word, by making a short video that combines the dictionary definition(s) of that word with a clip or several clips from the series”. The richly varied contributions to this project are often surprising and insightful.
