The Story Beyond The Still

Canon has a cool filmmakers contest to promote there awesome line on DSLR cameras. Below is the official explanation of how the contest works. Take a look at the original Vincent Laforet chapter one movie and the winners for 2 and 3. It is pretty amazing what these young filmmakers are doing with a 1500 dollar camera. If you were to have shown me one of these movies even 5 years ago and told me that it was shot on a DSLR....I would of said "you have lost your mind"! Check it out! Jarvy promises you will not be disappointed.

It's the first ever user-generated HD Video Contest where photographers become filmmakers, and we all see beyond the still. Last month Josh Thacker was chosen as the very first winner for his film "Job Security," based on his interpretation of a still photograph at the end of the previous chapter, "The Cabbie," shot by Vincent Laforet on a Canon EOS 7D. Josh's film was the second chapter of seven, ending with a still photograph of its own for the Vimeo community to interpret. After a flurry of entries, Keegan Uhl's "The Beach" was chosen as the winner for Chapter 3, and now, once again the question is posed to you, what do you see beyond this still?
