I don't want to critizise your video (I think it's well made, besides some nasty clipping in the sky), but I think that for people who want to shoot goose bumps pictures with just a little effort those ultra-large aperture lenses are a very good choice. I think that a big part of this fascination of low depth of field is not just a pure aesthetic one, but to do something which was ever since very expensive to achieve and therefore associated with high professionalism. The idea is to fool people who don't know much about recent developments in imaging technology, to increase the own reputation (why do I have to think of Philip Bloom? ;).
It's also interesting that since HDSLRs became affordable even pointless populist youtube blog videos provide this low depth of field. I'm wondering, if the resulting inflation of this will upvalue a high depth of field.

I don't know, I think for the 'fashion vid' genre, if I may call it that, shallow DOF is appropriate.

And while there is a lot of boring work out there, I think Mike Kobal's videos are a cut above, plus they tend to stay on the short-side which I think is good for this sort of thing, making them a must-watch in my vimeo feed. Certainly on a digital billboard or looping a store or at a certain kind of party...perfect.

Thanks for the message on Vimeo.

The 50mm 1.2 looks like a fun toy but I still love my 1.8!

The clips are a little "Mr Plow" but as Stuart Hooper said, that is entirely appropriate in certain circles.
