Canon EOS 5D Mark II and a cardboard tank

DVCulture posted this yesterday and we thought it was pretty clever usage of a Canon EOS 5D Mark II (reviews) and a bunch of cardboard. It looks like these young men had fun in the process. Not the world's greatest movie, in fact, it is mainly just an action sequence, but another fun example of what can be done with a little imagination, a lot of time, and some great tools.

Description from youtube:

The cardboard video is finally finished!!! This took about a month and a half of planning, making cardboard guns, filming, and editing. Sound, effects, editing, and filming by Clinton Jones, aka, pwnisher.

To make this video you need:
– 254 program crashes
– 427 manual frames to rotoscope
– 59 layers of sound effects
– a BUTTLOAD of cardboard and box cutters
– and a katamari

Thank you all, for making this video possible! Couldn't have done it without you guys!

Here's a couple of interesting BTS videos about the making of the movie

The deed is done. I hope everyone enjoy the ride as much as we did. Made from PVC pipe, Chicken wire, Zip Ties (900 + to approximate), and Cardboard! The project ran about $450.00.
