Pick ANY lens???

Gee. I think I’d ask for the 18-55 IS lens because I wouldn’t want to sound greedy, right?

Are they saying any production lens? Would anyone ask for anything but the 800mm f/5.6L IS USM? Sell that one lens off and you can probably buy pretty much every other lens you would want. It would make more sense if they said “and up to $12,000 MSRP worth of lenses”

Good lensing, sharp and controlled focus. Very good camera and actor blocking. Love how the directing does not pull attention to itself, rather draws the viewer in deeper into the scene/story and the “internal emotional life and world” of the characters. The framing is well chosen and the point of view (bird’s eye view of the bear on the sidewalk and close up on the bear in the car: brings the bear to life with his own loneliness and fear). The smooth movement of the camera as it followed the father up the stairs created further anticipation for what was about to happen. I like the economical style of editing which successfully highlighted the dramatic center in each scene, letting the moment “breathe” without interruption. Very nice. So Vince, when are you going to direct your feature film? Looks promissing. :)
