Friday Video: Vincent Laforet discusses the impact of HD-capable dSLRs on filmmaking

Vincent Laforet is one of the earliest users of dSLRs as filmmaking tools. His short film Reverie introduced the world to the unique look of video taken with the Canon EOS 5D MkII dSLR, the first dSLR to offer an HD video recording mode. Laforet is an experienced photographer and his images have appeared in publications such as Vanity Fair, The New York Times Magazine, National Geographic, Sports Illustrated, Time, Newsweek, and Life. He now spends most of his time working as a video director, working with dSLRs to make his videos.

The following video interview of Laforet from is only five minutes long and Laforet discusses introductory filmmaking for most of it. However in the last minute of the video, Laforet discusses the impact that HD-capable dSLRs have had on the filmmaking industry. It’s yet another example of how an app coupled with some pretty incredible optics and extreme electronic integration can remake an industry. That’s EDA360 in action.
