Raise your hand if you have never seen E.T. Silly request. Everybody has seen this movie at least once in their lifetime, and at least once in their childhood everybody has dreamt to have such a special friend.
But what if our childhood imaginary friends came to life? And what if those friends stayed with us for the rest of our lives?
Ian Bucknole has thought about this quite a bit and the result is a short film called Severed Dreams. He imagined what would happen to the life of a boy who carries his robot friend into adulthood with all the consequences that would come, with an unexpected ending.
What’s so special about his short film (apart that it immediately caught our attention both for the story and its beautiful realization) is that it was entirely shot with a Canon EOS 5D MkII and EOS 550D, with a total budget of less than £1,000.
As technologies evolve so do film making and photography, two worlds that have always been intertwined and that will be so more and more.
We will be happy to share with you in future posts these little gems we will discover along our wanderings through the web in search for inspiration and precious ideas.
