    Hi friends,

    Recently, one of our long-time collaborators, Giacomo Mantovani, released a short film called Lightning. Featuring beautiful angles and frames, the film follows the journey of a deaf girl and an underground musician. It was also shot entirely on the OnePlus 5T. Since our devices shoot in 4K, the quality is stunning, making it hard to believe that the film was shot on a mobile device.

    With the release of the movie we wanted to give all of you the opportunity to learn how to bring a story to life in the form of a mobile short film. We know that our community has loads of great storytellers and we want to empower you to share your talent with the world.

    How does it work?

    For the next couple of weeks, we’ll be releasing instructional videos on the fine art of film making, from concept to final product. Not only will you be able to learn from Giacomo himself, but you will also be able to join our competition and stand the chance of winning some pretty awesome prizes.

    Each video will contain a movie-based task for you, our budding filmmakers, to complete. Once submitted we’ll select the top candidates. These candidates will go through to the next round and will eventually be in line for the chance to win the grand prize of $10,000.

    What are the prizes?

    We want to encourage all our contestants to dig deep and produce really high-quality footage. In order to help with this, our top 10 finalists will each receive a OnePlus 6T on which to shoot their final films. Out of these 10 contestants, we will select the final winners.
    • First prize - $10,000, two OnePlus devices and a gimbal.
    • Second prize - $4,000 and two OnePlus devices.
    • Third prize - $2,000 and one OnePlus device.

    Do you think you have a creative eye? A story worth telling? Join the OnePlus Filmmaking Masterclass and see your dream come true on screen.

    The first video will air on 4 March 2019. Remember to read the instructions carefully and submit each assignment according to the guidelines.

    Excellent. Looking forward to this. I've been pausing the movie "lightning" pretty much on every frame to learn from it.

    Question for you @Malindi S. What other equipment do we need in advance or would you recommend? I've looked at osmo DJ as I think that's what they use in the movie.

    Fantastic idea, @Malindi S.

    The film made by Giacomo Mantovani is wonderful, made with OnePlus 5T and also winner of a prize, what gives idea of what can be done with one of our OnePlus.

    Good luck to all participants.

    Never Settle.
