Remember Now by Karl Lagerfeld

I really enjoyed this short film for Chanel by Karl Lagerfeld.  Even though its main intent was to showcase Chanel's upcoming line-up, I still think it keep its cinematic integrity.  I really love the simplicity of the piece, where they didn't try to hard to push issues, but instead just gave us a somewhat voyeuristic view of a moment in time, and alone that was justification by itself.  I do like the idea they were going with, try to show the dichotomy between ages.  Other then that the ending could feel a little abrupt, but it aligns with the idea of just showcasing that "moment" and worrying about the surrounding context of the story.

This collection was completely inspired by the 1957 classic by the same name. I like how thy reenacted the most controversial scene in the movie, the 'Devil's Dance.'  Apparently dancing barefoot on tables was sinful

The Story Beyond The Still: The Cabbie by Vincent Laforet

Chapter 1 of 7 for Canon's HD Video Contest: The Story Beyond The Still

directed by Vincent Laforet

When I was asked to interpret this still, a thousand different ideas flooded my mind. I wanted to create a dynamic film that took the audience on a journey and showed off the many strengths of this new breed of HD DSLR cameras, such as the Canon 7D, which we shot this film with. The camera's low light capabilities and light weight allow you to do things you'd never think to try with traditional cameras. This has been an amazing experience and it’s just the beginning, because the film you are about to see is merely the first chapter of something greater, as it ends on a still of its own. That's where you come in and run with it. Bringing your own narrative and stylistic interpretations to my still as you create Chapter 2. -VL
