Canon "The Story Beyond The Still" Sundance Premiere The result of a contest-driven collaboration, Canon’s “The Story Behind The Still” short film will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in a private showing on January 23, 2011. The film will make its public debut on the Sundance Channel and Vimeo on February 7th.

Begun with the help of photographer and DSLR video early adopter Vincent Laforet, “The Story Behind The Still” was a promotion to help promote Canon’s HD-capable digital SLRs. Rather than try to summarize the contest / film concept myself, I’ll just let Canon do it:

“The Story Beyond the Still” began as a year-long contest, launched in January 2010 on Vimeo that allowed photographers and videographers to showcase their creativity in a new style of filmmaking that blended still and video images into a continuous cinematic piece begun by Canon Explorer of Light, Vincent Laforet. The complete short film, including the final chapter starring The Breakfast Club star, Judd Nelson, will be viewed in its entirety at this private event during the 2011 Sundance Film Festival.

Canon is also the “Official Digital Camera” sponsor of this year’s Sundance Film Festival. There will be a Canon “The Story Beyond the Still” room in Park City, they’ll also be hosting workshops by filmmaker Eric Schmidt and they will also be holding daily drawings for a Canon EOS 60D digital SLR.
