An extraordinary film by Jamie Stuart. Not only is it a wonderful evocation of Dziga Vertov's 1929 silent film "Man With a Movie Camera," but consider that it was photographed during the Blizzard of 2010 and edited at lightning speed.

Roger Ebert's Journal, "Man in a Blizzard," by Jamie Stuart:
I shot with my Canon 7D and edited it with Final Cut Pro. Early on, I was able to vary things a little more -- I used macro diopters for the close-ups during the day shots, my portable slider for the dolly shots and also, a 75-300 zoom for the rooftop shots. I was more limited at night because of the weather conditions, so I stuck with my 24mm, 50mm and 85mm -- all of which are manual Nikon lenses. Which meant that in the middle of that maelstrom I was changing lenses, wiping off the lenses and manually focusing/adjusting each shot.
Great inspiration to go out and shoot, then edit some video.
