Why Watch? From its delicate shot composition to an emotionally stirring score, Peter Lewis‘s The Camera is a crash course in great filmmaking. It’s got a tinge of Twilight Zone to it done by way of picture postcard presence where a young woman finds an old camera that seems to have a unique, slightly ominous skill. Far from hard-boiled Serling style, it’s a tone poem that takes its cues from the  coastal water’s edge and the solitude of a lone cabin in the sand.

Plus, it’s inspirational to boot. In his own words, Lewis “made it because I love all the different aspects of moviemaking, because I was tired of my fear of failure, and because I wanted to see what would happen if I just finished one. Maybe this will lead to bigger and better films; maybe not. Either way I learned something.” He also made it for fifty bucks. Money well spent.

Bravo. Now go out and follow his example. Or just keep supporting those that do.

What will it cost? Only 7 minutes.
