A new short film, by award-winning actor and film-maker Gary Oldman, shot on the new Nokia N93 multimedia computer premieres today. Entitled Donut, the film is being screened on the Nokia Nseries Studio, a groundbreaking online mobile movie community where aspiring directors can now upload and showcase their own mobile videos.
Gary, the director of BAFTA award-winning Nil By Mouth and star of Bram Stoker's Dracula and Harry Potter: The Prisoner of Azkaban, has produced a two minute short featuring a round reflection in rippling water set to a haunting soundtrack. The film demonstrates not only the DVD-like video capture quality of the Nokia N93, but also how advanced mobile video devices offer the unique ability to shoot and share spontaneous instants in everyday life.
To encourage people to record and share moments captured on mobile video devices, Nokia has created the Nokia Nseries Studio (www.nokia.com/nseries/studio), where from today you can upload your own mobile short films either from your PC or from your mobile device. The site is designed to promote mobile moving making: you can find inspiration from Gary's film or some of the other videos shot on a Nokia N93 by creative visionaries from around the world, plus new themes to explore with your mobile video device are regularly posted on the site.
Commenting on his film, Gary Oldman said: "Mobile video devices like the Nokia N93 allow us to capture the extraordinary moments in our ordinary days and share them with the world. The image in Donut is one such fleeting moment I happened upon that inspired me to grab my mobile video device out of my pocket and record it to share with others. I hope my film encourages people to do the same and I look forward to seeing the results on the Nokia Nseries Studio."
Tapio Hedman, senior vice president, Multimedia Marketing, Nokia, said: "Gary's film really showcases how mobile video devices are the ultimate solution for spontaneous video recording. With the Nokia Nseries Studio we're hoping to encourage more people to shoot and share their life experiences. And with the Nokia N93, people can capture these moments in unparalleled video quality from a mobile device."
Boasting a 3.2 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, DVD-like video capture and 3x optical zoom, the Nokia N93 offers advanced imaging facilities.
