A rather charming father-son ad from Canon

Okay, yes, my inner cynic says that for-profit art schools churn out more “professional photographers” in a year than such jobs exist in the whole country, and that million-view videos online generally pay their creators just a couple of grand at best. Still, there’s more value in a visual education than just getting a job, and I like the spirit of this narrative (as would Max Fischer):

  1. Uh, Canon, hate to break this to you, but the kid directors of today are rocking iPhones (or iPod touches, if they’re younger).
