Nokia Shorts - this is how you pitch

These are the sorts of pitches that win competitions!

Nokia Shorts is a competition on Vimeo that Carat (my agency) has helped to set up.  To emphasise the quality of the video you can shoot with a Nokia N8, Nokia are giving film makers the chance to win a budget of $5,000 and two N8s to shoot on, prior to an ultimate prize of a premiere at the Edinburgh International Film Festival, and $10,000 prize money.  I first wrote about it in March.

Film makers had to pitch their ideas.  The eight winning pitches have now been revealed.

Here are four of my favourites:

Splitscreen: A Love Story from JW Griffiths on Vimeo.


Homecoming from Teemu Nikki on Vimeo.


Pearls from jasonvangenderen on Vimeo.

Not to mention:

The Adventures of a Cardboard Box - Pitch from Studiocanoe on Vimeo.

I know I'm biased because my agency's involved, but I think there's so much promise in all of these films.  Really looking forward to seeing the finished work!
