Beyond the Still: The Largest Online Collaborative Film Contest

A year ago, Canon launched a con­test called “The Sto­ry Beyond the Still,” which encour­aged pho­tog­ra­phers to become film­mak­ers, and help view­ers see “beyond the still” image. Fast for­ward twelve months and we have the final result: A col­lab­o­ra­tive film, now being pre­miered at the Sun­dance Film Fes­ti­val, that stitch­es togeth­er “chap­ters” (or film sequences) cre­at­ed by six con­test-win­ning artists, all under the direc­tion of Vin­cent Laforet. Each chap­ter ends with a still image that cre­ates the jump­ing-off point for the next chap­ter, giv­ing one artist the chance to pick up where a pre­vi­ous artist left off. The com­plete col­lab­o­ra­tive film (above) runs 37 min­utes. You can find more con­test-win­ning video on Vimeo right here.
