Sony challenged filmmaking students to shoot short films on Xperia 1

Peter, 07 August 2019

Sony partnered with San Francisco’s Academy of Arts University for the Sony Xperia Summer Film Fest. Using the Cinema Pro app and Creator mode on the Sony Xperia 1, students had to shoot a short film (under 5 minutes) based on the words “kando”, “joy” or “wonder”.

The top 25 entries were selected and now it’s up to you to vote for the winner – head over to XperiaFilmFest to watch the films and vote for your favorite. The winner will receive $10,000 to help fund their future projects.

As you can probably guess, all the films were shot in 21:9, matching the aspect ratio of the Xperia 1’s screen. Most creators shot in 24fps (a feature of the Cinema Pro app) for an even more cinematic feel.

The Sony Xperia Summer Film Fest will take place in a week on August 14 where the 25 films will be screened for attendees and the winner will be announced.

Sony is joking, the camera app can't even record video more than 5 minutes before showing error.

Not like if cinema was 21/9 too. Almost every movie going to cinema is in 21/9 and have top and bottom black bar on 16/9 TV. Only series are 16/9. Then there is all the whining about bezel, and then you say it's cool to have top and bottom black bars...
