The Story Beyond The Still: The Cabbie

Vincent Laforet - who made Reverie, the film that created a sensation when the Canon 5D Mark II was introduced - has a short film called "The Cabbie." The premise:

Canon asked me to interpret what story I saw beyond the still, and to tell that story with the new Canon EOS 7D.

and now it appears they are going to have the first user-generated HD Video Contest where photographers become filmmakers, and we all see beyond the still.

My short film will be the first chapter of seven, each ending with a still photograph for the next aspiring filmmaker to interpret. Posing the question to everyone, what do you see beyond the still?
There's no other information about the competition yet: it will be announced on January 15th. Stay tuned.
