  • 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…

    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.

The above film short shows some of the images from his latest project, Minutes to Midnight, for which he traveled around Australia documenting the country as it is today.
