Brilliant Films From The N8 Powered Nokia Shorts Competition

Remember the Nokia Shorts Competition we told you about?  The one that involved a grand prize of $10,000 and an all expenses trip to the London Film Museum, along with a chance to be one of the 8 entries that will be selected to receive $5,000 to produce the full version on two, Nokia N8’s. Yes, that one. Well its now over and we have a winner!

James Griffiths’s Splitscreen: A Love Story, a filmed on two N8s – one in Paris, one in New York, it places the two screens together to tell a story of two lovers that ultimately intertwines. More on this at the Nseries blog.

In total there are a bunch of 8 short films shot entirely on Nokia N8s, and if you look at them you would have a very hard time believing that something you carry in your pocket everyday can produce such great work.

Check out all the films on Nokia’s Vimeo page. Great stuff.

Sunday Watch: The N8 Stars In A Bunch Of Videos

A pretty large bunch of videos showing off the N8 has popped up over the last one week. Some demoing it in general, some not demoing it but showing what you could do with it and so on. The first on the list is the viral video that Nokia’s itself released, they ask if this is the greatest foosball match ever played and if you watch the video, you will have to agree.

The next is a much more general overview of the N8, the browser, multitouch, music player, camera and so on. While its in a language most of us do not understand, you should still be able to easily make out what is happening.

Following on we have a teaser of the Asphalt 5 game that Gameloft’s been developing for the N8. It supports both multitouch control and accelerometer navigation. Impressive.

The last is a small Ovi Store and Wikitude demo, the reason I’ve put it here because it might just be showing off the reboot of the Ovi Store that was promised a while back.

Do keep in mind that these videos have been shot on prototype hardware and software and the final product should be even better. Any thoughts?
