Mini Film: Dragonfly Love – shot entirely on the Nokia N8 (and behind the scenes)

I thought I knew the story line of the Nokia N8 Dragonfly having been back stage in Barcelona. Boy wAS i WRONG. This is a completely different sketch on the whole Dragonfly love thing (seen over and over in the N8 ad). Some disturbing fisherman stripping scenes. Beware.

Oh, and it was shot entirely on the Nokia N8. I’m really loving the video quality of the N8 (here and my own videos), and that neat little trick with virtually 3x optical zoom (really surprising when you use it yourself). Very nice touch.

“Director Thomas Hilland was asked to test drive the Nokia N8, and make a film that made the most of the smartphone’s impressive HD camera. The film features music by Kap Bambino, remote-controlled dragonflies, a stunning Norwegian landscape, and some men in colourful costume.”

The MAKING of Dragonfly Love

Here you’ll see how lots of these small N8s can rapidly cover a scene. You’ll see the trick a user brought up of using magnifying lens for extreme close ups. Also note the helicopter portion. 😮

Some insane unedited footage of the flying (in case some doubted it as CGI)

    Seriously though, brilliantly done. The crash was sad, but such a treat to watch at the same time! 😛 And the accompanying collective “Ohh!” 🙂
