      In an abandoned beach house, a solitary girl finds a mysterious camera that reveals something unexpected. ------------------------ "Perfect in its simplicity, beautiful and haunting in its visuals, The Camera is a reminder that a great film is in everyone’s grasp, as long as he/she has the creative capacity and appropriate willpower to drop pretension, and quite simply, make something." —Short of the Week "From its delicate shot composition to an emotionally stirring score, Peter Lewis‘s The Camera is a crash course in great filmmaking." —Film School Rejects Short Film of the Day "A compelling example of what’s possible when perseverance and resourcefulness meet." —DirectorsNotes.com "Awesome ... 'The Camera' proves that beautiful movies can be made simply and makes you want to get out and make your own!" —Mitch Aunger, planet5D "Haunting" —FStoppers.com ------------------------ Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/TheCameraShortFilm Behance: http://bit.ly/Yhsthe Follow me on twitter: @thispeterlewis Listen to the original score here: https://soundcloud.com/peterlewismusic/the-camera-original-score-1 Aside from a few unfinished running-around-in-the-woods-with-guns experiments from my early teens, this is my first film. I made it because I love all the different aspects of filmmaking, because I was tired of my fear of failure, and because I wanted to see what would happen if I just finished one. Maybe this will lead to bigger and better films; maybe not. Either way I learned something. The story was largely born from its constraints. It had to be doable in my free time, and I had to be able to shoot it during my vacation in Nags Head, NC—with a budget of only $50, to cover the props (I'd previously owned the Canon T2i, lenses, and Logic Pro, and used the free 30-day trial of FCPX). I wanted it to be a simple story with a mysterious twist or two. I got lots of advice from fellow filmmakers—Andrew, Mitchell, Kyle, Brian, Shepherd, Drew, David, and others. If you like the film, thank you Andrew, Mitchell, Kyle, Brian, Shepherd, Drew, and David. If you thought it was rubbish, they only tried to make it better than it was. And thanks again to Abbie and Gabe, without whose talents I couldn't have made it. Some have asked about Emily; the film wasn't written about her (she passed away while it was in post-production), but she was a dear friend of my family and many others, and it was an honor to dedicate it to her memory. Many of you know far more about filmmaking than I do, so please feel free to offer any critique.

                A young man takes his first leap into what it means to wonder and philosophize, as he imaginatively renders his unique thought experiences in visual form. The film examines what it means to truly be; not only to merely exist, but to engage, reflect, and respond to the world around us. (In order to fully experience the film, I highly recommend reading the preface below) UPDATES! 11/21 - Here's a 360° panorama of where I filmed the final scene: http://bit.ly/1uJyYfk Extra points if you know where this is! 11/19 - Here's an exclusive interview with LathanMag on the REAL story behind the film: http://bit.ly/11Ks4gm If you like the film, please consider using that tip jar to help enter this into festivals! 9/17 - I'm currently working on Spanish subtitles, AND uploading the script so everyone can revisit as necessary! Also trying to get some behind the scenes goodies together for how I made the space footage or got a lot of these shots! Behind the scenes photos of the cross country journey are up! Check by the comments! 9/18 - Original script w/ deleted scenes and music references: https://db.tt/PIufxebQ 9/25 - Wow. Life has been absolutely crazy, but I've been collecting all the BTS footage in hopes to cut together a little featurette showcasing our super fun road trip! Thanks again for the continued support! ----------- Written and Directed by Ian Watt Produced by Creator Collective in association with Culture Creator Starring Alec Mangum - Preface: This film explores some major concepts, but two of them are simple: places and spaces. Places are merely physical locations, with often no meaning attached to them. However, a simple, empty room can be formed into a space; turned into a place of meeting, creativity, innovation, and community. Places are often beautiful, awe-inspiring, breathtaking, but they only become spaces when we engage with them. When we experience beauty, peace, or joy from a place, our reflections and responses to the place are what create an experience, as well as the emotions that we feel. Here's the problem, when we reflect during an experience, or bring pre-conceived notions to an experience, we arent truly experiencing. Reflection must exclusively follow experience. This film is about experiences of the mind. Places of the mind are merely thoughts, ideas, concepts. When we engage with the places of our own minds, we create spaces. Spaces to dream, to think, to create, to become. In this film, a young man engages with some big concepts for the very first time, and as an audience we get to see the spaces he creates and explores. And with that, we get to explore alongside him, and ask ourselves the very questions that he does. With that, please enjoy The Universe. - Shot with the Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera Rokinon 16mm f/2.0 Metabones BMPCC SpeedBooster Glidecam HD4000 - Thank you, Vimeo community for the incredible support you've shown.

In lieu of the standard card/photo combo, we decided to send this video to those nearest and dearest to our hearts..... plus the internet. :) We hope you enjoy, and here's wishing you an old fashioned Christmas.
