The visual style of this trailer looks like not only the amalgamation, but also the perfection, of all the great visual pieces that have been popping up on Vimeo lately. Handheld, dynamic natural lighting, you name it; ironically, this film makes Terrence Malick look self-reflexive in the best way possible.

Below, the latest from Cyriak Harris. This one's called Baaa, and it's just as mystifyingly odd as Cyriak's past work. Lamb conveyor belt? Multiplying ovine spewing from a gaping, undefined sheep orifice? You will never look at the ovine race the same way.

I'm particularly interested in his point about 3D being darker. I saw Avatar in 3D with 2 different projection systems: RealD 3D and 3D at the Arclight Dome. Both times, throughout the film, I snuck a peak over my glasses and saw the colors and exposure at the saturation and brightness I thought the DP (haha) intended. It looked beautiful. The colors were more saturated and I could see important story information in the shadows. When you're losing over a stop of light transmission through tho...
Here is a Philip Bloom Meet Up in Key West where they spent the day shooting Anamorphic, with an anamorphic clamp. I don't think this video looks that great, but Im not sure if its the clamp or the lenses they used in the clamp. The Anamorphic Clamp available for $75 USD at vid-atlantic.com/anamorphic

For as much as Shane Hurlbut ASC's name is ostensibly everywhere right now for all the wrong reasons (re: Christian Bale, 5D challenge, etc.), as a cinematographer I think he's extremely talented. The photography and camera work in "The Greatest Game Every Played" are very underrated and the futuristic look he gave to "Terminator Salvation" is both stunning and unique.

Charles Bukowski's Nirvana revolves around a young man traveling to an undetermined destination, questioning his purpose in the world. Along the young man's aimless journey, he encounters a moment in time at a charming diner. In just that moment something is awakened inside of him, but even with a sense of purpose, sadness follows. "Nirvana" is a melancholy postcard from memories long past.

I entered the 2009 Crash the Superbowl Contest with this entry. It was a tremendous amount of fun to make. The fractal dorito was made from about 75 lbs worth of tortilla chips (about 12000 chips total) and was 64 ft on a side.
More than often, lawyer commercials tend to be the butt of many jokes. Fact is many lawyer commercials are just plain awful. Is it because the style is heavily commercialized? Is it because the end product is what the client wants? Or is it a combination of two factors-- the client does not know what s/he wants and the producer is afraid to explore possibilities outside of the "parameters" (for fear of being sued)? What if someone had balls to explore the possibilities?
There was a fantastic compilation of best film moments shown at the Oscars in the late 1980's or so. I had thought it was an ASC or ISC production. As I recall it was set to music and both opened and closed with short segments from Citizen Kane, then proceeded to several hundred other short items more or less grouped by topic (falls, laughter, kisses, etc). It had a title something like Precious Moments or Precious Images or something like that about 5-6 minutes long and really excellent. If ...

I filmed this before moving over to HD so I'm afraid this isn't as high of quality as other videos posted here. I was trying to capture the intensity and destruction of a storm and also how nature always makes a comeback.
