Canon Brings a Short Film to Sundance

If you're not familiar with it, the Sundance film festival is a place where movies go to be discovered. Breakout hits and important films like 'Hedwig and the Angry Inch,' 'Clerks,' 'Precious,' and 'Napoleon Dynamite' all came out of Sundance, but the latest addition is a film by Canon.

The movie is called 'The Story Behing the Still,' and it marks the final stage of the contest of the same name, hosted on Vimeo. The first seven chapters of the film are already out, but the eighth - shot by Vincent Laforet and featuring actor Judd Nelson - will be debuting at Sundance.

"At Canon, we strive to let the visions of all filmmakers be realized," says vice president Yuichi Ishizuka. "We are proud to be a sponsor of the Sundance Film Festival where we will showcase the full 'The Story Beyond The Still' collaborative film that demonstrates the first-hand benefits of shooting still and moving images with Canon's industry-revolutionizing HD DSLR cameras.
