Hollywood glamour graces the lens of Nokia’s N8 smartphone device as Pamela Anderson and Ed Westwick star in an amazing new short feature, The Commuter. The film will be shot entirely on the new device and Nokia is also looking for people to star in scenes alongside the Baywatch babe and Gossip Girl heartthrob.
The groundbreaking project is offering the chance to win two amazing main roles within the film, to either be in a bedroom with Pamela Anderson or up close and personal in an elevator with Ed Westwick. To be in with a chance of starring with Pammy or Ed in The Commuter, wannabe stars need to visit www.starwithpam.com or www.starwithed.com.
Showcasing the HD 720p camera qualities of the Nokia N8, this will be one of the first times that a project on this scale will use a mobile phone for much of the filming process. The lucky winners of the cameos will also get the chance to see themselves in Hollywood quality at a glitzy, star-studded London premiere of the new film in October.
Fans can still get the chance to be the first thing Pamela Anderson sees when she wakes up through a fun new Facebook viral that sees a sultry Pammy rolling over in her bed to check her Nokia N8 and find your profile picture on the phone. The viral is available from www.starwithpam.com and everyone can easily upload their own pictures and share it with friends.
Commenting on the new film, Pamela Anderson says: “I’m really excited about the film and can’t wait to get on set. I don’t want to give too much away, but my scenes are shot in a bedroom and I’m looking forward to going back to my Finnish roots and sharing my bed with a Nokia N8!”
The short feature is being directed by one of the UK’s hottest upcoming directorial pairings, the McHenry Brothers, who have just finished work on their first feature length film, Jack Boots on Whitehall, featuring Ewan McGregor, Rosamund Pike, Richard E Grant and Timothy Spall.
John Nichols, head of marketing at Nokia UK, said: “We wanted to create something very special for the launch of the Nokia N8 that showcases the Hollywood quality of its camera. The boldness of the campaign reflects the boldness of the device itself. This is all about accessible, fun technology for people to use and enjoy; and that anybody can be a star.”
The Nokia N8 is launching soon and is designed to intuitively connect to the people, places and services that matter most. With the Nokia N8, people can create exciting content, connect to their favourite social networks, and enjoy on-demand Web TV programs and Ovi Store apps. The Nokia N8 boasts a 12-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, Xenon flash and a sensor rivalling those found in compact digital cameras. Additionally the Nokia N8 smartphone enables everyone to bring out their inner film director by recording HD-quality videos and edit them with an intuitive, built-in editing suite.
