Perya (Town Fair)
"Life is like a Ferris Wheel - It just goes round and round." Canon Philippines lent a team of filmmakers a pre-production model of the new Canon 7d camera and gave them a day to shoot before they had to return the goods. The result is an introspective look at a Perya, which is the Filipino equivalent to a carnival or town fair. The stories that the people who run this perya are telling, just like so many of us in the world today, are about making a buck to live their lives. With no additional lighting or effects, the footage looks incredible and brings you inside the life of a perya.
