WHAT IS DESIGN FOR SCREEN: The Darker Side Of The Lens

One of my friends showed me this video online and i thought it would be perfect to re-blog. The video follows the path of a cameraman who films surfers narrated by himself and filmed by himself. I like the video due to the inspiration quotes from the narrator and the way it flows with each and every camera angle. The shots in the film have been edited well so that that each frame has filter so that the colours are very subtle.

I like the way he uses his camera to focus on subjects that people wouldn't always notice looking down the view finder of a lens. The slowed down and sped up sections work really nice and add atmosphere to the message his is trying to put across.
