Sin, From Above

I've been trying to find out about this film ever since I saw it as a short before a feature at the IFC Center in New York a couple of years ago: Site Specific: Las Vegas is director Olivo Barbieri's aerial look at the city, using a technique he calls "selected focus" (which I've also seen called "tilt-shift"). The method makes things look more like toy models than real-life structures. I featured a photo shot in this way not too long ago.

I couldn't find a clip of Las Vegas to embed, but there's a preview available on the Sundance Channel's site. It seems that Sundance will be playing it Saturday, January 10 at 11:35 p.m. and Sunday, January 18 at midnight. If you have the channel (I don't), I recommend watching -- it's hypnotic. The whole thing is less than 10 minutes long.
