Netanal Jacobsson just sent me this information!
"Samsung mobile will be launching a new cool web initiative called "AnyFilms.net" www.anyfilms.net on Saturday, Dec. 24. However, an agency I work with tells me that the site will be up and running already today. The aim of the the initiative is apparently to challenge the way ‘film’ is both produced and consumed. I have had a look at it and it is quite amazing. Anyfilms.net features "Ubiquitous Films",…

some really cool short films produced by young Hollywood filmmakers that can be downloaded on some Samsung mobiles, and "Interactive Films" an amazing interactive experience, through which the user can manipulate films to change the stories and solve puzzles – there is actually supposed to be 11,000 different ways to view the content.. Pretty cool, isn’t it?
The films have been assembled by Jon Kilik, known for such productions as Broken Flowers (Jim Jarmusch, director, Bill Murray, lead role) and Alexander (Oliver Stone, director, Anthony Hopkins, lead role). He has brought along Hollywood filmmakers Mark Dippe & Alex Merklin (Adrian Grenier is starring in his film) to create these films.
It seems like Samsung really believes that movies on cell phones is going to
become very big in the near future."
More information can be found on the weblog of Netanal.
So that we’re all clear on who really did this work, the site was created and implemented by Margeotes Fertitta Powell and The Barbarian Group. Hyper Happens only involvement was to promote the thing.
When promoting work, it’s nice to give proper credit rather than “borrow” publicity for one’s own glory.
Hi Steve, glory to all involved in the project:
Morihiro Harano / Drill Inc.
Neil Powell / MFP
Concept Writer for The Film Series
Josh Rogers / MFP
Phoenix Communications Inc.
Naked Communications Inc. / Hyper Happen
“It seems like Samsung really believes that movies on cell phones is going to become very big in the near future.” >> IK geloof er niks van.
Ik bedoelde: Samsung gelooft er misschien in, maar ik niet. Als je naar een film gaat kijken moet je er voor gaan zitten. EN als je er voor moet gaat zitten dan neem ik aan dat de meerderheid toch naar een iets groter schermpje wil kijken dan het gemiddelde cell phone scherm.
