Canon HV30: Birth.Life.Death.

I'm not quite sure what to make of this. But I do think I have to say that whatever the filmmaker was going for, it was achieved. It was a combination of sexy-turned-disturbing and bleached-humanoid-something. Anyway, the point is, the filmmaker had a Canon HV30 and a depth of field adapter, and was able to achieve the not-so-simple goal of creating a mood, ambience and character...with the benefit of music but without the advantage of dialogue.

As well, there are some simple but effective editing tricks used in this piece. The filmmaker does a very good job of using post-production to create a sense of progress and motion, even when a number of the shots were locked down on a tripod.
