As with every new product, Canon sponsors a number of projects to show the capabilities of their upcoming C200 cinema camera. Indeed, it has great features at its price level, but what is a great camera without a good example how it was used? The perfect film marriage is between a beautiful story, captivating visuals, and audio that ties it altogether. I think we have them all here, including a glimpse of how it was done behind the scenes.
This short film is about something very simple we take for granted: the fish we order in the restaurant. The documentary explores the process of catching, transporting, delivering, and preparing the fish. It is amazing how many people are actually involved in the chain. I like how the production team have managed to add a romantic feel to the story. My favorite part is the beginning when the fishermen go on their daily routine on a misty early morning.
After you've watched the documentary you can check the behind the scenes. You will find that the camera is only a piece in the production puzzle, but still an essential one. And by the way, it makes me feel kind of nervous when I see all that gear floating on a boat.
