Celebrated choreographer Parris Goebel lives in a visual world, constantly capturing footage of her dancers for work and documenting aspects of her life on her social media channels. Parris understands the vital role a smartphone plays in her everyday life so she jumped at the chance to put OPPO’s new 5G smartphone, the OPPO Find X2 Pro, to the test, in a fashion suited to her busy life.
“A smartphone is far from simply being a communication device – my world is incredibly visual, instantaneous and I need to be able to capture anything I am doing, on the spot and know I’ll get a quality result without too much effort,” says Parris Goebel.
“With every project, my creative process and direction stems from the palm of my hand – ritually, I create the choreography then film it to review what’s working and where to improve. The bigger the screen and sharper the viewing, the easier I can see where tweaks need to be made. It also allows my dancers to see how they’re performing and illustrates how moving in even the slightest way differently can create a better effect.”
The OPPO Find X2 Pro is the perfect partner for Parris’ needs with it’s industry-leading features, from 12-bit raw capture for prime editing, to its Ultra Steady video technology, fit for the fastest-moving scenarios. The Find X2 Pro’s game-changing video capabilities took the lead when Parris filmed a series of three short videos of her dancers recently. The Ultra Steady Video created faultless stable shots, 4K 60fps video shooting and Live HDR mode drastically improve the picture quality of ordinary videos. It also upgrades 30 frames of video to 60 frames, minimising motion jitter and blurring during high-speed action.
“More and more, fans are viewing our content shot on a smartphone so it’s crucial to have a premium standard phone to portray the true essence of our work and evoke the feelings you’d get from a live performance,” says Parris. “I was excited to see if the Find X2 Pro would live up to its claim as a tool to enhance my creative expression and produce quality action footage – and I wasn’t disappointed. The calibre of the phone stood the ultimate test in my home studio.”
Another must-have for Parris is a long-lasting battery; sharing that having her phone die on her is her biggest pet peeve which is something many Kiwis could agree on. The Find X2 Pro has the world’s fastest and safest commercial charging, leaving no room to miss the action, powering up from 0-100% in just 38 minutes.
“We’re blown away at what Parris produced with the Find X2 Pro and the final videos could be mistaken for a professional camera,” says OPPO NZ Managing Director, Morgan Halim. “But with the Find X2 Pro leaving no stone unturned for the best possible viewing and creative experience, coupled with Parris’ natural talent, we’re not entirely surprised at the duo’s creations.”
Parris Goebel’s three-part mini video series created using the OPPO Find X2 Pro can be viewed online and Parris is also giving her followers the chance to win an OPPO Find X2 Pro for themselves on her Instagram.
