Star-Studded Short Film Being Shot Entirely with the Nokia N8 Phone

First there was the House season finale filmed entirely with the Canon 5D Mark II to show the HD video recording potential of DSLRs, and now there’s a star studded short film titled “The Commuter” being shot entirely on the new Nokia N8 cell phone, which boasts a 12 megapixel sensor and Carls Zeiss optics. The project — directed by the McHenry Brothers — began filming at the end of September and stars Dev Patel (Slumdog Millionaire), Pamela Anderson, and Ed Westwick (Gossip Girl).

By the way, the behind-the-scenes video shown above was filmed on the N8 as well.

    Cool post, but these videos are stupid. THey have pro lighting pro sounds and other professional directors, producers etc….just because they used the camera doesnt mean someone is on Final Cut Pro massaging the shit out of the files in post – its still a farce

    Yeah.. Shooting a short film on a cameraphone is just retarded.. WHY would you do that?!

    DSLR-video is great because it’s as close to film/RED you can get on a consumer budget, but a phone.. Jeez..
