A Friday Double Post // Smile Recognition + Shutter Booth

We recently attended a Canon Workshop series with the ever talented folks from Stillmotion. While we examined all sorts of technical aspects to filmmaking like lens choice, composition, lighting design, and work flow. . . . . we also had a fun little opportunity to produce a 30 second spot for Canon's new Powershot with Smile Recognition. Cool little camera. Instead of a timer, you set it up and it won't take the picture until the faces in the frame smile. Creepy. . .but cool. Check it out:

As the second part of this post. . . another tasteless, shameless, and yes absurd sighting of the crew in a photo booth with Tracie + John from last Saturday. Special thanks to the folks from Shutter Booth. I must say, I have become a fan of the over sized shades. Ben prefers the Kanye look, and Dave??? Well, he just likes to wear hot dog hats. Let's just say this photo was the tip of the iceberg with Tracie + John. Easily a trailer that we can't wait to cut. . . . stay tuned :-)
