Shoot Me Now: International collaboration explores mobile filmmaking in real-time on the 21th December

Local mobile film innovators Virtuo (Auckland | Strasbourg | Helsinki) and MINA (Aotearoa) have collaborated on the creation of a global live mobile film event, ‘Shoot Me Now’, as part of the French short film festival "Le Jour Le Plus Court", which will take place on the 21st December, 2011.

The 21st of December is the winter solstice in the Northern Hemisphere, the shortest day of the year, hence the title of the festival ‘Le Jour Le Plus Court’/’The Shortest Day’. On this day over 1800 events will be held throughout France, celebrating the creativity and diversity of short film across a variety of formats including web, mobile, TV and cinema.

In keeping with the festival’s aim to promote participation and creativity, Virtuo and MINA have created ‘Shoot Me Now’, a live mobile film event for "Le Jour Le Plus Court", that anyone with a smart phone and a wifi or 3G connection can take part in. Films will be shot on mobile devices in real time and streamed live on the web at www.shootmenow2011.wordpress.com/ .

“This is an exciting way of producing films live, exploring mobile devices as creative tools and connecting through film-making,” says Max Schleser of MINA.

“We’re thrilled to be working with the Le jour le plus court team and to facilitate creative collaboration beyond international borders,” says Laurent of Virtuo/MINA.
