Spike Lee is making a feature-length film shot entirely on cellphones. In this, the day when anyone can own a hi-def camera and make decent looking cinema, Lee is taking it down a notch. No, this is down, like, 23 notches, at least. And maybe a rung.
He’s an Oscar nominated director, and his idea is to “democratize” film making. He’s partnering with Nokia who will provide the phones.
He’s launched a website where anyone can upload their video for inclusion in the film. There will then be an online vote, and the top ten entries make it into the film.
This will end well.
