With all the amped-up features in found in Huawei smartphones — from camera capabilities to storage features and editing tools — novices and professionals alike are embracing a new way of shooting movies beyond just creating Instagram or Tik Tok vids. In fact, with so many advancements in mobile technology, this evolution could give rise to the birth of a new era of digital filmmaking. And it wouldn’t be long before the traditional video camera would be replaced by smartphones.
If you fancy yourself a budding filmmaker, pick up your Huawei smartphone, create a mini movie, and you could walk away with a mega cash prize of US$20,000, plus the title of Best Film at the first-ever Huawei Film Awards.
Targeted at aspiring smartphone filmmakers and content creators from Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam and the Philippines, the competition is dedicated to celebrate the work shot on any Huawei mobile phone, with the goal of uncovering and supporting movie-makers of tomorrow.
Huawei recognises that, in Asia Pacific, there are not many platforms that support and uplift mobile filmography. By providing tools and resources, the smartphone brand aims to play a small part in driving innovation and creativity within filmmaking, as well as nurture local creative talents’ interest in smartphone cinematography.
