This combination of old camera parts, Russian lenses, and a Digital camera give the film a visually compelling look that ties in nicely with the post Apocalyptic theme. A very unique story dealing with adulthood and the inevitable pitfalls that plague all of us as we try to find ourselves. L...

Surely SLR cameras are just for still photography, I thought? After a little investigation, I was surprised to learn tha...
