When & how did you first discover your passion for filmmaking?
The HDSLR revolution has brought the still and video community together in some interesting ways. Tools that would never be considered for video production have proven themselves highly adept and invaluable for video production. For Milby, using the Lensbaby system seemed like a logical conclusion. Milby explains, “The optics of the Lensbaby system imply movement in still photography, and that’s why I was very excited to use them in video production.”
Since that time, Milby has become an unofficial evangelist for the system by not only using them extensively, but also recommending them to all. “I tell everyone I meet, if you’re looking to tell your story in a way that is visually ‘out of the box’ then Lensbaby is a great solution. Milby’s zeal for Lensbaby lead to his contribution of the chapter on video in the latest Lensbaby book, “Bending your Perspective” which is available on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/Lensbaby
Currently, Milby is completing a hands-on review of their Movie Maker’s Kit, an all in one package that is a complete creative solution for professional filmmakers looking to add unique effects to their film in camera. This project took Milby to Big Basin in Boulder Creek, California for a view of some of the oldest Redwoods through the eyes of a Lensbaby.
