I’m a massive fan of mobile video. With the advent of super-powerful megapixelastic lenses on our smartphones, capturing the world has become that much more beautiful. For instance, this short film was shot by J W Griffiths entirely on an Nokia N8 smartphone. The result is a beautiful mashup of contrasting cityscapes and a story that quite a few of us can relate to.
