‘O’, A Short Film Shot With a Water Lens Created Using Surface Tension

O” is a short film by Takahiko Watanabe shot with a water lens created using the surface tension of a drop of water inside the hole in the middle of a Japanese five yen coin held over the camera lens. The effect is a unique perspective through which Watanabe tells a story adapted from the poetry of Fukudapero.
