Introducing QuaranTASKS! Our attempt to spread a little joy in these *don’t say it, don’t say it* unprecedented times.
Due to a certain global pandemic that I’m sure you’ve heard about, we’re all stuck inside for the foreseeable future. And, if you’re anything like us, you’re probably looking for something to do — besides yet another game of UNO, joining your three hundredth Zoom quiz, or pouring yourself another glass of wine. All perfectly reasonable options, of course — but in case you’re looking to mix things up a bit, we thought we’d set you a bit of homework each week. Because don’t you miss the days of homework, eh? EH?!
To try and add a bit of joy and laughter to your lockdown days, we’re launching a series of silly weekly missions, which hereby goes by the incredibly-unimaginative-though-perfectly-fine name: QuaranTASKS. QuaranTASKS will consist of a wonderfully absurd task set by Secret London once a week; something that you can easily complete from home.
For our second QuaranTASK, we’re asking you to recreate your favourite movie scene.
We’ll be giving no further guidance or rules — you are free to interpret this in any way you like. But if we see any evidence of the outside world (unless you’re in your garden, of course) then you will be disqualified. #StayHome and have some fun.
Last week, we asked you to recreate a London landmark out of things you can find in your home, and the results were brilliant.
QuaranTASKS is suitable for anyone and everyone who is stuck indoors. That’s couples, families, individuals, dogs, cats, canaries… So, to get involved, send us videos, photos and/or timelapse footage of you making your creations to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line ‘QuaranTASKS’, or tag us on Instagram (@secret.london) with the hashtag #QuaranTASKS. We’ll be choosing our favourites later this week and you’ve got until Friday at 4pm to submit your entries. Go go go!
