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.
