Nokia Shorts 2011 N8 film maker winner announced
It is clear that the Nokia N8 is the best cameraphone available and should hold onto that title even though T-Mobile is promoting the new myTouch 4G Slide as having the best camera on a smartphone. I use my N8 quite a bit to capture video of my daughters’ sports and other events, but need to learn how to do better so I can hang with folks that turn out videos like these taken for the Nokia Shorts 2011 video contest.
Thousands of videos were submitted and judged over a four month period and JW Griffiths, from Great Britain, was selected as the winner with his Splitscreen: A Love Story movie (embedded below). He earned a $10,000 USD prize.
Seven others were selected as finalists and all of these can be viewed on the Nokia Shorts 2011 website. These include the following videos:
1. ‘Pearls of Wisdom ‘
Jason Van Genderen – Australia
A unique, short documentary featuring ‘pearls of wisdom’ from homeless and displaced people
2. ‘The Adventures of a Cardboard Box’
Temujin Doran – UK
The escapades of one boy and his cardboard box – his own gateway to a million, fantasy adventures
Joseph Marcantonio – UK
A post-apocalyptic cowboy film
4. ‘The Rider’
Josh Brooks – USA
A classic story with a twist set in the hills of Montana
5. ‘Thunk in Public’
Ryan Maples – USA
A comedy short on unfiltered thoughts, leading to awkward situations
Teemu Nikki – Finland
Humourous film featuring key props including salmon, knife and a pair of gloves
Aurora Fearnley – UK
A drama fantasy about one person coming to terms with a special, mystery gift
These are great to view for motivation to capture even better movies myself. Do you capture video with your Nokia N8?
