Action Cam by SONY Launches “Never Before Seen” Campaign

 

WASHINGTON D.C. – SONY Launches US campaign commissions over 20 films shot on Action Cams by directors all over the world.

With the recent release of Sony’s all-new Action Cam, they are launching a new initiative called “Never Before Seen” to display the camera’s abilities through stunning visuals of some very talented artists and curators from around the world.  The first three videos, “Picture Machine”, “Paperports” and “Creature” have been released already and are making quite an impact online!  This is an amazing way to not only launch their new product, but to involve and integrate fellow creative nerds and ‘artiholics’ in actually using the product and showing us through visuals how to be more creative.

 

Background of Action Cam:

The campaign was launched on March 23rd with the debut of three films: “Picture Machine”, “Paperports” and “Creature”. Directed by Studio Nos, Charles Young and Ryan Dzierzek respectively, the variation between the three films is a good indicator of the campaign’s overall breadth. “Picture Machine” documents the construction of a reverse zoetrope, “Paperports” lets us peek into the work and process of Young’s intricate miniature paper architecture practice, and “Creature” tells the tale of a mutant reptile on the loose.

I know for sure that I will definitely be purchasing the new action cam and am excited to utilize all of the new functionality, specifically for the high quality and 4k high quality footage.
