You simply must watch this if you are even slightly interested in how technology is effecting the progression of art including music and filmmaking. It’s an absolutely gorgeous film and we are very privileged that the House of Radon guys are sharing it on Vimeo.
Taken from the Vimeo page:
The digital revolution of the last decade has unleashed creativity and talent in an unprecedented way, with unlimited opportunities.
But does democratized culture mean better art or is true talent instead drowned out? This is the question addressed by PressPausePlay, a documentary film containing interviews with some of the world’s most influential creators of the digital era. presspauseplay.com @presspauseplay Facebook: on.fb.me/y4gEK1

Update: 17-1-2012 - The Canon C300 is now available for Pre-order from B&H.
Update: The video above was made private on the 19th Dec but has since been made public and then private again. I’ll leave the embed online for now just incase they continue to change their minds.
The film was inspired by eight winning photographs which were chosen as part of Canon’s PROJECT IMAGIN8ION.
When you find me was shot using one of the first prototypes the new Canon EOS C300 with ariel shots done with an RC Helicopter fitted with a 5D mkII.
Check out my Canon C300 review for more information about the camera used.
Video’s and user reports from Panasonic’s AF-100 camera are starting to appear all over the web now and I’m becoming more and more intrigued by this new camera.
The Af-100 uses a micro 4/3′s sensorwhich is smaller than those used in the full frame Canon 5D markII and slightly smaller the 7D’s APS-C sensor so it will be interesting to see how the AF-100 performs with traditional 35mm lenses on adapters. Certainly using something like the Canon EOS lenses will result in a crop factor of around 1.8 so using wide lenses becomes problematic with a 24mm performing more like a 50mm etc.
