Eduardo Cachucho’s “The Game” wins 2008 Nokia Mobile Filmmaking Awards

Nokia’s project which aims to try and harness “the power of film and encourage people to view the world through someone else’s eyes, called Pangea Day, has just concluded and the five finalists for mobile filmmaking have already been announced. A hugely surprised Eduardo Cachucho takes the top spot saying, “I couldn’t believe it was me when the winner was announced at the broadcast.”

Eduardo Cachucho says his film was made with the objective of telling the world that “children are children everywhere, no matter where they live, what their race is, or whether they are rich or poor. Children are the same all over and want to have fun and play.”

Pangea Day

His winning mobile short film is called “The Game,” and was shot back in his home base in South Africa, like many of the other films submitted to the Pangea Day Channel on Share on Ovi, which according to Nokia, is “a free media sharing service that makes it easy to upload, manage and share personal media through mobile, desktop and other connected devices.”

If you missed the event, don’t worry. You can still watch the Pangea Day films here, and even watch a replay of the Pangea Day broadcast (in which the finalists were announced) here.
