Nokia: Mobile Cinematography - Please Turn On Your Mobile Phone

Presented by Nokia.

Join a stellar group of presenters, including an Academy Award Winner, to understand the exciting opportunities that break-through mobile cinema offers artists, producers and all individuals wanting to create great short form video for friends and family. This presentation combines visual demos with insider information about exciting topics including:

  • An overview of mobile innovations (especially N8 phone cameras) and how they can benefit fast, cheap, yet very high quality filmmaking.
  • A documentarian shows how mobile, ultra-small, yet high capacity, cameras, can radically assist filmmaking especially in challenging and even dangerous situations.
  • Mobile devices can be used spontaneously when the idea strikes - either for final product or proof of principle. Also, think the purposefully homemade-looking, but massively successful Blair Witch Project.
  • Shooting with your phone does not have to mean compromising quality anymore. Meet the new CameraPro and VideoPro applications from BLStream, armed with sophisticated special effects, HDR, digital filters and real-time preview. Built around user-extensible architecture, enabled with UI designed for flexibility and ease of operation.
  • Hear from the creator of Pocketbooth, a vintage photobooth simulator for your mobile phone that allows you to create some of the world's shortest shorts: a 4-frame filmstrip narrative.
  • LiveCast - Complete Mobile News Team in a Box. Ideal for a live multi-camera shoot of a newsworthy event. Live video stream can be output for viewing on many platforms, while concurrently being archived on the cloud.
  • Marketing and Distribution aids:
    • iMatte - Sister company to Ultimatte, inventor of the Hollywood “blue screen” technology. App is used in marketing - put out stills of your movie (independent movie or Hollywood blockbuster) and allows individuals to photograph their friends or themselves into a movie scene. Just position subject against a blank wall of any color. White label application, branded per movie.
    • Sh@re - put out movie trailers on a customized web based platform directly from the device, optimized for viewing on other mobile devices.

Tim Garrett - Tim Garrett is an artist living in the Midwest.

In 2005, he joined forces with film archivist Brian Meacham to create, an online repository of photobooth information and ephemera. tracks, among other things, every appearance of a photobooth in film. Garrett's art utilizes the familiar form of the photobooth (a strip of 4 photos) to create imagery that surprises and delights. In particular, he is fascinated by the cinematic quality of the photostrip and many of his photos experiment with the photostrip's inherent narrative. He likes to think of photostrips as some of the world's shortest shorts. (
