Critically acclaimed and award-winning film director Sir Ridley Scott shot a short film using the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra. The video was recently posted on Samsung’s official YouTube channel.
The short film, titled Behold, is 3 minutes and 49 seconds long. It was entirely shot using the Galaxy S23 Ultra, showcasing the smartphone’s video capabilities.
A behind-the-scenes video showed how it was done. The flagship was attached to a gimbal and the crew used professional equipment and professional editing software. It’s no different than what Apple did with their video Life is But a Dream, which was shot on the iPhone 13 Pro by renowned South Korean director Park Chan-wook.
Still, Sir Ridley Scott had a lot of good things to say about the phone, praising it for its ability to shoot high-quality videos in a compact form factor.
