    • Sentenced to Life


      from John Estes / Added

      The Cabbie travels through time to find clues to saving his daughters life. Each time he returns, things have changed slightly. Did he do it, did someone else? He uses the titles and still images from previous chapters to form a sentence that tells all. Take your time and watch it twice, to discover the clues that compose this man's sentence to life. Great thanks to Eric Wise ( Cabbie), Myla Estes ( girl) Sean ( Boom Boom) Hickey for the soundtrack and as always friends and family that helped greatly. Directed by John Estes

      • Detained

        Detained is my interpretation and continuation of the previous Chapter 6 winner's still frame: "Fool Circle" by Marc Jonathan de Jesus ***note to viewers and judges*** I obviously messed up audio levels on this, can easily be fixed if a semi-finalist, my bad. "Detained" is about a small team who try to "incept" the Cabbie's brain for their own financial gain. I saw a new movie (we all probably know which one) while the next still came out, this movie made me think for days after, so I decided to incorporate it's basic cool rules/concept and adapt it to this wonderful story of 6 Chapters. I wish, of course like many of the submissions, that we could have up to 5 or 6 minutes! As you might see some of the cuts are rushed, this is usually not my style but I had a lot of material for 4 minutes, and every scene was important to the next. Hope everybody enjoys! This was real fun to work on.

          Submission for Chapter 7 Shot on 7D Had to rush to get this one done. Was out of town... so I had to shoot the Friday before deadline. Pretty much cranked out a script in one day and then got crew/actors/props/equipment/locations all together the next day and shot it all in one night. Figured I give it a shot since it is the last chapter. Quite an experience. Was quite surprised that I was able to get a group of people together. So yes... Bear with me... 1) It was just the Cabbie and the Bear... all along 2) Bear with me for the very limited time that I had to put this together. ENJOY!

                Part 6 of the Canon/Vimeo 'Beyond the Still' competition by San Francisco based filmmaking team, Wurner Brothers. As the contest is drawing towards its end, we thought we'd take a crack at answering some of the many questions the previous chapters had raised. We shot this movie in two very long days on a budget of $400 dollars-most of that money went towards pizza. Check out the video, we really hope you all like it!

                  Sometimes the Course of the Events that shape our lives are pre determined. In this chapter we learn more about Cabbie as the FBI try and intervene. Thanks to the Cast and Crew for helping out and making the script a reality! Kudos to Canon, Vimeo and Vincent, this kind of open source online film competition is helping to push the boundaries of these camera's and help pioneer the next evolution of cinema. I'm truly proud and excited to be a part of it! Shot on the 5DMk2, 50mm 1.4 and 28-70. "Our goal was to start bringing the story to a closure, while leaving couple open ended story threads. We used the dialogue to provide some answers to what the elements from the previous chapters meant. There is also one major twist that we added. I hope you find it interesting to watch. Visually, we wanted to take the camera to a place and lighting situation it hasn't been before. We wouldn't be able to shoot a club scene like this one with a two men crew, guerrilla style, if we didn't have a 5D which is compact, light, has a big sensor and is amazing in low light especially with a 1.4 prime on it. I believe that scene alone is a testament to how amazing the DSLRs are."
