Japanese high-speed train Shinkansen travelling from Shin-Osaka to Tokyo was the core idea of Daihei Shibata for creating a great video sequence probably using mirror effect and vertical flip effect combination, the video was shot by OLYMPUS EP-1(PEN). It seems that Daihei Shibata isn't the only japanese that got inspired by Shinkansen, Darwinfish105 shot the Hyper Drive video sequence using a Panasonic DMC-GH3. https://vimeo.com/68546202 Although they seem similar in my opinion the angle of their camera in front of the train for versus the side from Daihei Shibata really makes a difference.

Vimeo staff picks is great place to find interesting artistic videos from all over the world.

HiddenRoom's pick is So long my Hong Kong by Gregory Kane. Gregory lived in Hong Kong for the past six years and moved from there recently so he made a farewell video for the city he called home. So long my Hong Kong was shot on the Sony RX100(link) while editing was done using Final Cut Pro X(link).
