In this film, we'll have a peek into Mr. Emilton's cabinet of curiosities. A mysterious room filled with exotic objects and animals he collected during his journeys. All of the speaker's names are incorporated in these rarities of Mr. Emiltion's room.
Throughout the film, we hear Mr. Emilton telling his life story. About how he used to draw as a child and got inspired by all the books he read. About the countries and exotic animals he discovered during his journeys. Until the moment he realizes he neglected one the most important things…

So this is my entry called ' moments '. My idea behind this piece was to bring to light all the little things everyone overlooks in a days time and the things we ALL take for granted.
Be it a toothbrush, sunrise, fresh-air, you name it.

I have to give credit to my cousin for obtaining the fantastic snow falling clip whilst snowboarding in Vancouver last month. Squeamishly donated my 7D for his powder carving pleasure. Thank you weather seal :)
