  • TRON: Legacy

    I’m loving the look of the new Tron movie, Tron Legacy. The new film builds on the original and tells the story of Kevin Flynn’s son, who goes in search of his father 20 years after his disappearance. Here’s the official synopsis from Walt Disney Pictures via IMDB: Sam Flynn (Hedlund), a rebellious 27-year-old, is…

  • Vincent Laforet: The Cabbie

    Vincent Laforet created this video with a Canon 7D as the first chapter in a series for the Canon video contest “The Story Beyond the Still.” Laforet was given a still image to interpret, and this video is his interpretation of that image.  The video ends with another still, which contestants for the second chapter…

  • Mathias Malzieu: The Boy with the Cuckoo-Clock Heart

    This is the book trailer for The Boy with the Cuckoo-Clock Heart by Mathias Malzieu. I’ve seen links to book trailers before, and never thought much about them. I prefer to read the inside flap or reviews from other readers to decide if I want to read a book, and I don’t want to have…

  • The PEN Story

As you probably know, I’m a Canon girl, but I’m finding very hard to resist the pull of this cute little camera. The video above was created entirely with…

  • Dan Chung: Another Night in Beijing

    https://vimeo.com/6759220This phenomenal video was shot entirely with a brand new Canon 7D by filmmaker Dan Chung, just hours after he purchased the camera at a local retailer in Beijing.

  • Christoph Rehage: The Longest Way

    https://vimeo.com/4636202From November 2007 to November 2008, Christoph Rehage trekked across China, taking video as he went. But this was not your typical tourist video.

  • Sherlock Holmes

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ywtSDdztLuYThis past Friday I went to see the newest Harry Potter film, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, which was fantastic.
