Chris Milk shoots a great Canon EOS 5D Mark II video

by planetmitch4 Comments

My backlog of amazing Canon EOS 5D Mark II videos is piling up… but I just found this one by the famous Chris Milk… and it just grabbed me and I had to share. Great story line, well executed with Lensbaby lenses, and just a beautiful quick story. Funny that the credits are longer than the story. (note, I didn't pick the image that was selected for the video…) I found it on youtube too, but the vimeo presentation is better.

The youtube comment says “Chris Milk's entry into Beijing's 42×42 film festival.” – a little digging finds that it is sponsored by 42below (a vodka brand) and there are 42 directors who submitted 42 second movies.

      Looks like the version I had linked was pulled because the original was on Vimeo as well – I have replaced it with the original – Thanks for posting!
