Gary Oldman premieres new mobile movie studio

BERLIN, Germany and HONG KONG, April 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Award-winning actor, film-maker, and Harry Potter star Gary Oldman today unveiled a pioneering new mobile video initiative, the Nokia (NYSE: NOK) Nseries Studio, and announced plans to shoot a short film with the new Nokia N93 multimedia computer, also introduced today.

Advanced mobile video devices like the Nokia N93 offer the unique ability to capture and share spontaneous instants in everyday life. To encourage people to shoot and share these moving moments, Nokia has created the Nokia Nseries Studio (, a new interactive online community for mobile movies.

Gary Oldman, the director of BAFTA award-winning Nil By Mouth and star of Bram Stoker's Dracula, Leon and Harry Potter: The Prisoner of Azkaban leads an international cast of creative visionaries who are shooting mobile movies for the Nokia Nseries Studio on a Nokia N93. They are all tasked with producing short films based on the theme of 'open your eyes' - capturing the everyday moments that tell a touching, compelling or provoking story about the world we live in.

Today and regularly over the next few months, a selection of these mobile movies will be premiered on the Nokia Nseries Studio where they're available for downloading to mobile devices or PCs. In the summer, Nokia is planning to open up the site so people can upload and showcase their own mobile short films.

Commenting on the initiative, Gary Oldman said: "I am fascinated by the potential of mobile video devices like the Nokia N93. They allow us to catch the fleeting moments we observe in our daily lives and share them as they happen. The possibilities for film-making are endless - I'm looking forward to producing a short film on a Nokia N93 and I hope it inspires people to record the extraordinary moments in their ordinary days and share them with the world."

Tapio Hedman, senior vice president, Multimedia Marketing, Nokia, said: "Connected mobile video devices are the ultimate solution for spontaneous video recording. With the Nokia Nseries Studio we're hoping to encourage more people to shoot and share their life experiences. And with the Nokia N93, people can capture these moments in unparalleled video quality from a mobile device."
