Jakarta, MobilePhone-Us.com – Nicholas Saputra’s latest film entitled ‘You, Wednesday, and Things at a Glance’ looks different from the previous edition. The reason is, the entire process of shooting a short film with a duration of about 30 minutes was recorded using the OPPO Find X5 Pro 5G.
Not only Nicholas Saputra who became a star in this film. Behind the scenes, entrenched two well-known names, namely Riri Riza and Mira Lesmana who respectively act as director and producer, of course via the production house Miles Films which successfully worked on the iconic film ‘What’s Up With Love’ volumes 1 and 2.
The film ‘You, Wednesday, and Perkara2 at a Glance’ itself is a cinematic story about the complexity of the world of creation.
For the synopsis, this short film with a romance mystery nuance tells the story of Rhun (Nicholas Saputra), a writer who is attracted to a reader of his novel and then gets carried away in an unexpected situation.
Welcoming this collaboration, OPPO Indonesia’s Chief Marketing Officer, Patrick Owen said that the party was very proud to be collaborating with Riri Riza, a proud Indonesian filmmaker who is also a Cinefinders figure to present films that were all shot using the OPPO Find X5 Pro 5G smartphone camera.
Meanwhile, director Riri Riza who is also OPPO CineFinders said that this filming using an OPPO smartphone is the second time after launching the short film “You and Me in Low Angle”.
“This year I tried to explore various shooting techniques with the OPPO Find X5 Pro 5G smartphone through the film ‘You, Wednesday, and Things at a Glance’,” he added in Jakarta, Wednesday (5/10/2022).
During the filming process, Riri Riza explained that shooting in low-light shades was to show an unexpected mystery romance atmosphere to produce certain emotions.
“Doing that, of course, is not easy. Dark color tones are often an obstacle in displaying players’ emotions. But with the OPPO Find X5 Pro 5G smartphone, these obstacles can be overcome. This allows me to get images that give a touch of emotion in this film,” he continued.
On the same occasion, producer Mira Lesmana said that while designing the production for this short film, it was very enjoyable because it had the freedom to design unique story ideas and create a production that was not burdened by the crew or large budget.
“Current technological advances allow anyone to make films with a smartphone and make it easier for young filmmakers in the process of taking pictures for their film works,” he added.
As for the actor and OPPO Indonesia Brand Ambassador, Nicholas Saputra, he said that every time he gets a role offer, he must first know what kind of character he is given to me.
“Similarly for this film, I discussed a lot with Riri Riza about the character of Rhun and what he experienced and felt. That way, I can bring the Rhun character created by Mas Riri to the camera,” said the star of ‘Broken Wings’.
According to Nicholas, the character Rhun he plays is quite challenging, because the mystery situation must be built in a simple but character set.
“The challenge of shooting is quite difficult. However, this is facilitated by technological innovations in shooting. After seeing the results, I was amazed by the ability of the OPPO Find X5 Pro 5G camera with image results that are equivalent to professional cameras,” he concluded.
The short film ‘You, Wednesday, and Things at a Glance’ itself can be watched on OPPO Indonesia’s Official Youtube channel starting October 6, 2022.
