BUS GIRL | BAFTA Nominated Short Film Shot On Xiaomi 11 Smartphone

This proves that smartphone filmmaking is now accepted at the highest levels.
Check out this premiere of the BAFTA nominated short film “Bus Girl” by director and actor Jessica Henwick.
In her BAFTA nominated directorial debut Bus Girl, Jessica Yu-Li Henwick delicately draws on the parallels between the film world and that of fine dining. Bus Girl, filmed entirely on a Xiaomi Mi11 phone, tells the story of an aspiring young female chef as she navigates the cutthroat world of high end cooking and draws directly from Henwick’s nascent experiences in the film industry at the tender age of 16. The film’s rich, Wong Kar-wai inspired aesthetics act as another point of technical proof as to what’s possible when using a phone as your shooting camera – featuring sumptuous cinematography and an eye for detail viewers can visually dine out on. Ahead of next week’s BAFTA awards ceremony, we sat down with the actor/writer/director for a chat about her dissatisfaction with the roles available for women.
