Olympus has been rolling out the results of its 48 hour short film contest, which was part of the 2011 Vail Film Festival. “During the contest, 19 teams of filmmakers from around the country were challenged to create a film, from start to finish, in a 48-hour timeframe with the powerfully simple Olympus PEN camera and a variety of lenses and accessories.” Olympus is using this opportunity to pimp its HD-shooting PEN cameras, like the new Olympus E-PL2.
This week, Olympus revealed the runner-up short film, Der Bürgermeister. You can check it out, along with some commentary from the filmmakers, below.
