Berlin, Germany and Hong Kong, China – Award-winning actor and film-maker, Gary Oldman today unveiled a pioneering new mobile video initiative, the Nokia Nseries Studio, and announced his plans to shoot a short film with the new Nokia N93 multimedia computer, also introduced today. The new Nokia N93 offers the unique ability to capture and share spontaneous instants in everyday life. To encourage people to shoot and share these moving moments, Nokia has created the Nokia Nseries Studio (www.nokia.com/nseries/studio), a new interactive online community for mobile movies.
Gary Oldman, the director of BAFTA award-winning Nil By Mouth and star of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Leon and Harry Potter: The Prisoner of Azkaban leads an international cast of creative visionaries who are shooting mobile movies for the Nokia Nseries Studio on a Nokia N93. They are all tasked with producing short films based on the theme of ‘open your eyes’ – capturing the everyday moments that tell a touching, compelling or provoking story about the world we live in.
Today and regularly over the next few months, a selection of these mobile movies will be premiered on the Nokia Nseries Studio where they’re available for downloading to mobile devices or PCs. In the summer, Nokia is planning to open up the site so people can upload and showcase their own mobile short films.
Tapio Hedman, senior vice president, Multimedia Marketing, Nokia, said: “Connected 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.”
