Sex, Blood, and Post-Its: A Short Film Shot Entirely On a Scanner

It's one thing to shoot an entire short film on a Canon flatbed computer scanner. It's another to do it well. With Memoirs of a Scanner, Mindfruit Films pretty much nailed it.

It's a short short—just over a minute—but Memoirs covers a lot of ground: an office fling, in-fighting, getting fired. And it makes me think twice about taking my office equipment for granted. Except for the three hole punch. That, I'm totally over. [Vimeo via Daily Dish]

DISCUSSION

Doubtful that it was shot entirely on a scanner.

It's more likely that it's shots were just done using a piece of glass, and intended to appear as if from the view-point of said copier/scanner.

(Copiers/scanners rarely take photograph-like images since they're intended to just take a image of only what is pressed against the glass.)

Still, pretty cool/funny vid! ;-D
