Xperia delivers an authentic cinematography experience
Director Eiji Uchida offers his thoughts on filming with Xperia:
If you know what you’re shooting, for me it’s the same with a VENICE (Sony’s VENICE CineAlta digital cinema camera) or an Xperia. Xperia has the potential to make your work better.
A new style of movie making
I think there are many directors who would like to film with a smartphone and see how it’s just as fun, myself included.
I’ve seen the footage on set and the finished film. My honest feeling was, “Oh, you can shoot a film on Xperia.”
The perfect tool for aspiring filmmakers
If I was young and making indie films today it would be so cool. Because we really struggled with slow motion and aspect ratio to get that “film look”. I envy the fact that you can do that on a smartphone – I mean you could actually shoot a feature film on this.

The short film was edited using Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2020 and Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve using footage shot on Xperia's Cinematography Pro feature. Some editing software may not allow editing of footage shot on Cinematography Pro. Xperia software was partially modified for use on this production.
Showcasing the next generation of creators
Sony not only provides the technology for aspiring cinematographers to create professional quality film and video but also offers them opportunities to showcase their work.
