Video: Behind the scenes of “The Commuter” the mini movie Shot on the Nokia N8
A few weeks ago we heard about a film (in which you could star in) joining the likes of Pamela Anderson, Ed Westwick (Gossip Girl) and now Dev Patel (Skins, SlumDogMilliiinaaayre :p and Avatar: The Last Air Bender).
This film is entirely shot on the N8 and I’m guessing this 720p behind the scenes video is also shot on the N8.
The Commuter is a film by the McHenry brothers who are releasing their debut film ‘Jackboots on Whitehall’ (starring Ewan McGregor, Rosamund Pike, Richard E. Grant and Timothy Spall) later this year.
N8 on steady cam. As expected – all other mobile type films are shot with some sort of steady cam. Even high end consumer camcorders MUST be on a steady CAM/crane rig/track to get those smooth cinematic shots.
Again, this is the type of marketing I’m expecting with Nokia. Make people aware of what you can do with your product by doing fantastic things with it. Don’t worry that you could technically achieve similar things on other platforms (with possibly N8 being superior :p). That’s really how it is for most things. It’s all about the mind set, inspiring users into being able to see the potential of your deices.
