Smartphone as a work tool for creators

The aim of the Prime Time campaign is to encourage local directors to take part in interesting, independent projects.

Optics also play a role, as well as a large and fast memory. The smartphone is also incomparably lighter and smaller in relation to the film camera. It can be mounted on a drone, easily moved to capture the action from a different perspective. An important feature in the Xiaomi 12 series, which allows you to record video of professional productions, is the PRO mode with lots of options, as well as recording from the so-called a flat LOG profile, which allows for better image vividness in the post-production of colors.
