Young Irish film-maker Daniel Dalton, has emerged as the winner of the Hot Press HTC Take One competition to make a video for Dublin band, Dirty Epics. Daniel beat out Susan Gleeson for the prize.
The Four-piece, fronted by Sarah Jane Wai O'Flynn, teamed up with HTC and Hot Press to run a public competition for emerging Irish film-makers to create the video for the band's new single, 'Those Pretty Things'. The competition had a special twist, in that the video had to be shot entirely on a mobile phone, the HTC One, with a total budget of €1,000. The single, "Those Pretty Things", was produced by Declan Gaffney (U2) and Matt Paul (Amy Winehouse, Noistettes).
By using the HTC One to film your video, you'll be able to quickly shoot vivid, true-to-life images with a wide range of colours, even in low light conditions. By engineering a more advanced CMOS Sensor, ISP and optical lens system that captures up to 80% more light than most 8 or 13 megapixel cameras, your footage will be of a quality impossible to achieve on any other mobile phone.
