Music Video Tells Beautiful Story About a Magical Polaroid 636

This is a low budget music video directed by sixtwelve for the song “The Better Man” by Cayetano, and filmed with a Canon 5D Mark II. The story centers around an old Polaroid 636 received as a birthday present.

Something interesting about this music video is what they discovered while filming it: when it gets wet, the Polaroid 636 goes into “continuous shooting” mode, chewing through film and turning into an machine gun-style instant camera. Here’s a funny blooper clip showing the accidentally discovered “feature” in action:

Unless you have the budget for the expensive film, it’s probably best to keep your camera dry and this feature “off”.
