5D Mk II and Brooklyn meet GROUND HOG DAY in A TRUNCATED STORY OF INFINITY

by Hugh Brownstone2 Comments

planet5D reader Paul Trillo reintroduced us to a sweet-natured, humorous and slightly mind-bending short he did in 2012 with a Canon 5D Mk II.

Neither the fact that I was born and raised in Brooklyn until the age of 7, nor that my oldest child lives there today, have anything to do with the smile that slowly developed on my face and lasted through the film’s end.

But man, oh man, was that a lot of work for 8 minutes and 19 seconds!

Take a look and see what I mean.

Thank you, Paul and team, for helping some of us start the day right.

“A Truncated Story of Infinity” – A Short by Paul Trillo

From Paul Trillo:

Hey Mitch,

Hope you're well. Wanted to pass along my recently released short film “A Truncated Story of Infinity.” The short film explores the theory of the multiverse and the infinite possibilities within the everyday. Following the infinite variations of Vincent, “Subject X”, and his pursuit of a woman on the street.

Even though it was just released, it was shot 2 years ago with the 5D.

    Thanks Paul for sharing your short film with all of us here on planet 5d and of course with all our other different selves in all the other multiverses!  Kidding aside I loved the theme of your movie, Very simple yet it makes you think. The movie made me smile when I started to think about a loved one I lost back in March of 2013  I thought to my self that in some other Universe she is still alive and happy with another version of me! It made me feel good and for that I that I thank you!!
