Nokia, Spike Lee plan cellphone movie

29 April 2008

Nokia is now looking to increase revenues by entering the arena of film production.

Nokia has joined hands with famous filmmaker Spike Lee to make a cellphone feature film. The cellphone footage will be taken from everyday life. Spike Lee calls it as democratisation of film. The film by Nokia Productions will consist of three acts. An "assignment" for each act will be announced online and people will then have four weeks to produce their submission.

Aspiring filmmakers no longer have to go to film school to make great work. Nokia says it is helping people to make films using a simple mobile phone. The customer need not learn film production basics from any class. Any one with a cellphone can become a filmmaker.

Nokia will choose 25 submissions, and then allow people to vote online for their favorite for the top 10. Spike Lee will then choose the winning submission from each act. Lee will direct the film through the web site. The final film with the three winning submissions and other contributed content will premiere later in 2008, in Los Angeles.
