Huawei #DualLensDuel

Here’s the latest film in our collaboration with Huawei and Isobar. Huawei set the challenge for two photographers, who found fame on their social media channels, to launch a camera duel. Vincent Chapters has a passion for black & white photography, whereas Mr Whisper is a firm fan of colour. Since the new Huawei P9 phone has a dedicated lens for each format the challenge would prove to be an exciting one to judge.

Embracing the new phone each photographer set off to capture the diversity and energy of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. For two days they both shot some amazing images using their dedicated lenses. This new film, to air across Huawei’s social channels, encourages the public to judge their results to determine the winner of the challenge.

We worked closely with the Agency and the Director to create the final two-minute content film along with two one-minute teasers. In order to capture as many scenarios as possible Director Michael Arnold shot a lot of footage. Will Barnett then cut this down in a fast turnaround edit, gaining client approval after only three days. In Flame Hani graded the approved film and created all of the motion graphics for the final picture.

What is clear from the film and the images from both sides is that the new Huawei P9 phone is the real winner.
