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
