I have a lensbaby composer lens – but I don't use it as much as I should… we just saw this cool video posted on Lensbaby's site about a video shot for Boxee we thought you might like.

We also used a Lensbaby on the introduction to “Incident on Marmont Avenue” – don't remember? Then go watch it again :)

Boxee promo video

More about the project: “The shoot called for a unique perspective on NYC living, as a way to present the Boxee lifestyle experience. We made the choice to go with time-lapse sequences as transitions and mood setting for the video. To give it that extra “oomph”, we chose to shoot the time-lapses using a lensbaby on our Canon EOS 5D Mark II.

We used the Lensbaby Composer, along with the wide and tele adapter, and changed aperture with the magnetic discs on the go. We were literally blown away by the visuals that can be achieved with such a compact system! The client was delighted, as were we…” – Tomer Bahat

What do you think?
