Last night I was invited to the Nokia Store for the launch of the Nokia Productions project which is a collaboration between the consumer and Nokia to producer a short film to be directed / edited by Spike Lee. Anyone is welcome to submit video, original music, photos and text. The event itself was a cocktail reception complete with red carpet outside and execs from Nokia inlcuding Bill Plummer and Tero OjanperÃ¤ former CTO and now the EVP, Entertainment and Communities.
I’m sure my readers will agree that the future if not the present of content development has been forever changed with the advent of digital technologies and newer high end devices like the Nokia N95 and N82 enable everyone to capture high quality results. While everyone is not going to be a filmmaker, it’s certainly easier than ever to take part in the process of creation and the Nokia Productions team is looking to kick this off with quite a few people. As Spike Lee said, he welcomes the new world and is looking forward to working with thousands of us …
I like the idea of user generated content curated into a collaborative piece and it should be very cool to see how this 9-12 minute movie ends up this fall.
Here’s the video from Spike’s presentation:
