Canon's 30-Minute C300 Short 'When You Find Me'
A 30 minute short film sponsored by Canon and shot on the Canon C300 and 5D Mark II, When You Find Me premiered on YouTube this week and will reportedly go offline tomorrow morning. So I figured I'd share it while it lasts -- if the full film has been taken down, the trailer is below. Executive produced by Ron Howard and directed by his daughter Bryce Dallas Howard,
here it is in full here is the trailer (the full film was taken down according to schedule):
My knee-jerk reaction was to say that the C300 looks more like TV while the RED SCARLET (which the C300 will forever be compared to, thanks to the timing of both announcements) looks more like film. For what it's worth. What do you think? Also, many of the C300 shots are quite grainy, and organic film-like grain or not, by the time the footage goes through compression for the web it can get pretty chunky. And as more and more movie and TV watching is done via Netflix, Hulu, Vudu, Amazon Instant, and YouTube, you can't discount how something looks after compression -- it's becoming the rule rather than the exception.
The short film was inspired by user-submitted photos as part of Canon's Long Live Imagination project; here's a behind-the-scenes about the short's creation.
