– How do I begin… I just watched When You Find Me, which made its debeut a few days ago as part of Canon’s Project Imagin8ion.
Described as a Hollywood short film inspired by 8 winning photographs chosen by Ron Howard and Directed by Bryce Dallas Howard, When You Find Me was shot with Canon’s soon to be released Cinema EOS C300 camera. As a father of two daughters, similar in age to the girls in this film, and husband to a wife who I would never want to be without, I will publicly admit, it moved me -tears and all! And, I think, for all the right reasons. Within one minute, I totally forgot why I was actually watching it (which was to study how the Canon EOS C300 actually performed ) and I was completely enshrouded in the story, the characters, the mood – everything. I felt so much, for what the girls were feeling, for what parents feel for their children, and how each of us carries our own fear, hope, regret, and ultimately, relief. I was quickly overwhelmed by simultaneous emotions… it was powerful, I didn’t expect it at all. This short film simply reminded me why I went into this business in the first place! My apologies for being sappy on this post. That said – Thank you Ron Howard, thank you Bryce, and thank you to everyone involved in this project – especially our friends at Canon! – Tom Talbot Director of Technology Rule Boston Camera
