Behind the Scenes of Canon's 'Rhythm of Life'

Canon has recently come out with their short film, "Rhythm of Life' showcasing their new line of cine lenses. Shot with the Canon C500 director, Dean Hargrove and cinematographer, Steven Poster ASC, explain how the different cine lenses affect the footage and change the color and feel of your shots. The BTS video was shot with the Canon C300.

The film was shot in 4K. It's interesting to see just how in-depth the filmmakers go into explaining color matching and the consistency between the prime lenses and zoom lenses. If you're interested in Canon's line of Cine cameras and lenses then this video is perfect for you.

I expected to be blown away with the results after seeing all this gear and lenses, and not to mention the huge crew! I wish if Vincent Laforet did this, I bet he would've done something epic!

The behind the scenes was very interesting, seeing the lenses and how they were used. But as for the final "short film", I didn't like the way they cut it together at all. Visually, it looked great, but there was way too many cuts and the soundtrack overpowered the dancers performance.
I felt like I saw more of the dancers skills in the behind the scenes video compared to the edited 'short film'

I thought i would be blown away. But i wasn't

Canon makes the most hideous demos EVER. Wow.

While i agree that this short really could of been handled far better. I don't think that your comment is entirely fair Jim. Take a look at "Eye of the Mind", the 5DmkIII demo that Canon France put together. http://m.youtube.com/#/watch?v=eCRMu2rLf_Y&desktop_uri=%2Fwatch%3Fv%...

That was just not worth while....

It's funny how everyone is bashing Canon after all their effort and money spent.

The time, the cost,and the amount of people and equipment involved in producing this piece of work seems extremely excessive. The final product looked good however for some reason I guess I was expecting something more incredible.

Why don't they offer a PL-mount option on their primes, yet they do on their zooms?

and hardly any focal length options
