Filmmaker and Storyteller James Matthews has a burning desire for travel and exploration.
“Filmmaking has been a passion of mine since the age of 14 and over the years I’ve found that my work takes inspiration from emotional elements such as nature, people and music.”
James had shot short films with Xperia PRO-I and Xperia 1 IV in his trip to Cornwall and Madeira.
“This is the perfect companion device to an Alpha Camera as it allows me to try different angles and challenging perspectives at the same time it delivers a high-level performance.” he says.
“If you had told me a few years back that we would have the capabilities of 4K 120fps, an 85-125mm true optical zoom lens (for Xperia 1 IV), Eye AF, and Object Tracking, all in a phone, I honestly would have thought you were pulling my leg. After looking back at the footage from this shoot,
I was truly blown away!”
Here is his film with behind-the-scenes footage.
