Reverie

Photographer Vincent Laforet has got the photography and film communities buzzing with the release of his little short film Reverie. It is the first short film shot in 1080p with the new Canon EOS 5D MKII, and evidence that Canon will indeed revolutionize film making with its release. Folks, this was all shot with an $2700 SLR camera – think about what this means! Laforet put this together in just 72 hours, primarily to showcase the camera, and his footage is incredible.

  • :| this is retarded. technology you amazed me once again you mother.

  • i wasn’t even paying attention to what was going on cuz the pictures were so beautiful.

  • mitch

    are you kidding me?!?!

    this is friggin’ ridiculous.

  • vuudoo

    did you hear that? that was the sound of my mind exploding.

    amazing.

  • Still not quite as nice as what the red can do. Shooting in raw vs compressed quicktime makes a difference. I find the canon still looks a little “video-e”, but I’m sure some post will go a long way.

    But the canon is still an amazing first step especially at 2700 usd. The red is 18000 usd.. which is relatively cheap compared to other production quality cameras.

    These slrs in the future are just going to get better. The new nikon is going to have the same feature. I’m sure pentax and the others will follow suit and only improve on whats out there.

    Some footage shot on red:

Artist Spotlight: Carson Davis Brown

“Mass” is a project by artist Carson Davis Brown in which he creates sculptures inside of big-box stores and other places of mass. He constructs the unauthorized installations, photographs them, and then leaves them to be discovered by shoppers and staff. Images of the installations are printed, framed (using un-sold frames), and exhibited inside the stores without permission. See more images from the series below as well as video clips documenting the building of installations using cameras tethered to in-store camera displays!
