The Commuter is a charming (!) little short movie commissioned by the Nokia marketing department and shot entirely using Nokia N8 mobile phones. We’re talking serious bucks here by the way, with Dev Patel, Charles Dance and even the ubiquitous Pamela Anderson in cameo.
It all looks very fine, and is a great example of the kind of quality we’ll be seeing on all mobile phones in a very short while, but it’s easy to forget that you can make any footage look pretty good with a decent director and some top class post production. Nevertheless, impressive.
‘The Commuter’ staring Dev Patel, Pamela Anderson, Charles Dance, Ed Westwick and shot entirely in mobile HD on the Nokia N8 smartphone. The groundbreaking film, directed by the McHenry Brothers, was shot in just four days with the Nokia N8 using no back up cameras, with the streets of London and St Albans providing the backdrop to Nokia’s story about one commuter’s eventful journey to work.
