To celebrate the launch of the new Samsung i8910 HD mobile phone, Future Shorts in association with Samsung Mobile have commissioned four top directors – Mike Figgis, Phil Sansom & Olly Williams, Rankin & Chris and James Lees – to make films in quickly turned-round short films shot in HD.
Watch all four films and cast your vote for your favourite at the website – they are all being shown at Future Shorts’ current Please Say Something festival tour, but the winning film will be shown in cinemas nationwide. Voting ends next Friday, May 29th. You can also win a i8910 phone.
And for starters, here is the most musical of the quartet: Mariachi! by Phil and Olly (aka Diamond Dogs) in which a nervous chap finds a way to express his feelings for his dream girl through song and dance. And what a fine song it is.
So watch, and vote…
