Our entry to the IKAN HDSLR Revolution Contest. Also our very first video using actors, lights, mics, and the Canon 7D.
Thanks to the HDSLRs and their low price versus leading camcorders, imaginative minds worldwide have a bigger opportunity to exhibit their creations in top video quality at a bargain. The HDSLRs have revolutionized the filmmaking community by making it more affordable to start creating artwork and allowing more films to be enjoyed by thousands or even millions, and maybe even opening a door of opportunities for them and their future.
For our short we used a boy’s experience and situation as a metaphor for hurdles we all encounter during the pursuit of our dreams and passions. Whether we let these stumbling blocks keep us down is a whole different story. As we push back these hurdles, help comes from various sources. As mentioned before, HDSLRs have afforded many of us the opportunity to contribute to the filmmaking community and create our personal pieces of art. IKAN has been there to supply us with high end and high quality equipment to do so. With such tools on hand, all is possible. This short film was shot using the Canon 7D.
We dedicate this video to all amateur filmmakers worldwide.
