…Scanners can tell stories?

Memoirs of a Scanner is a short film that was shot entirely on the bed of a Canon scanner, one scan at a time.

Despite those limitations (or perhaps because of them) the story is rather interesting, and makes you wonder just what the scanners of the world are privy to exactly:

…Canon guys can never love Nikon girls?

What happens when a Canon guy falls in love with a Nikon girl?

Let’s just say there’s a lot of lens polishing involved:

Notte Sento

In Notte Sento,

A girl misses her train to Milan and is set to wait overnight in Rome until dawn. However, a chance encounter with a guy changes her plans and the night lights of the capital turn into the background to a tender love story. An extraordinary chemistry made of knowing glances and small gestures fills the few instants that separate them both from the sunrise.

The film itself was made using more than 4,500 still photographs that were shot with a Canon EOS 30D and then stitched together as a stop motion, with is a rather beautiful way to tell a rather beautiful tale.


…It’s Movie Monday: This is Hamburg?

This Is Hamburg

This is Hamburg is a fantastic stop motion movie of two guys showing off their city through the windshield of their car.

The camera setup was a Canon EOS 40D with a Sigma 10-20 @ 10mm lens on a Manfrotto tripod fixed with seatbelts in the rear seat of a BMW 635 CSI. AV mode was used with a fixed manual focus set to 1M at f/6.3, and triggered automatically by a TC-80N3 set to 8-second intervals.

In all, there are roughly four hundred frames in the movie, with plenty of scenery to keep you entertained, so travel from the comfort of your own chair with This is Hamburg.

…Cars and People is fascinating?

Time-lapse photography can make anything exponentially more exciting, so it should come as no surprise that the seemingly boring subject of a parking lot takes on a life of its own when you can watch 24 hours flash by in just over a minute.

Called Cars and People, it was shot using a Canon Digital Rebel XT SLR camera with 15-second intervals between shots at the parking lot on Bay and Edward in Toronto.
