Beautiful cell phone video

Imogen Heap's All the Way Home is an inspirational use of cell phone video. Adrian Miles says "there's no art without constraint" and Imogen masterfully handled the constraints: 1) The fuzzy nature of cell phone video creates an impressionistic look for her nature scenes. 2) Her beautiful vocals combined with the "impressionism" make the whole sequence dream-like. 3) She works around the length limitation of cell phone video by pasting them together. (Sounds obvious, but this is the first time I've seen it done with cell video.) (Credit due to Jay Dedman for calling cell phone video "impressionistic")
