SLR as a Video Camera? Why not...

Vincent Laforet with Canon support shot a short film REVERIE with a SLR!!! It feels like a lightweight fashion spot but when you see the video you will not believe it. Canon EOS 5D Mark II digital SLR was used. Canon allowed him to borrow the unit for 72 hours. Here is the raw footage (downsized to 1/4 resolution) the files used to create this video were not manipulated in any way. Hats off to Vincent for pulling this off in NYC. Check out the behind the scenes video too.

As I've been saying the cameras are now here. The "Art" needs to match the storytelling. As with all transmedia concepts the reality of technology is only valid if it can involve and prove satisfying to the viewer.
