'Canvas' by Imogen Heap
A story about a painter's struggle to get the perfect view. Moving, but not only because of the music and simple plot. The way the film is shot is both mysterious and well captures the meditative quality of passionate work. The dark (and in the latter part, the light) is used to frame the shots and offers a mere glimpse of each moment before opening up to the final subject matter of the artist.
It's amazing what can be done with a grayscale palatte. It is also hard to use; our own perception of the world is stripped bare to the purest essence. I wonder if that is why photographers love using black and white so much - little windows of light patterns.
Slow hard, dog, wait, down love, black canvas, revolve within, you understand.
