SOCIAL MEDIA – SOCIAL ME is the name of the latest production and promises an unbiased look at social media - and especially at what goes on behind the camera. Florian David Fitz hosts the 25-minute format and talks to some of the best-known content creators and actors about their experiences in the fast-paced social media world. Fitness creator and entrepreneur Sophia Thiel, actor and director Kida Khodr Ramadan and creator and singer Mario Novembre give an insight into what it means to be present on a daily basis for an audience of millions on Instagram, TikTok and YouTube. They also talk about the challenges of social media fame.
What kind of creator do you want to be? This is the question our host Florian David Fitz asks not only himself, but also our protagonists, who couldn't be more different: Kida Khodr Ramadan, actor/director (4BLOCKS), fitness influencer and entrepreneur Sophia Thiel, TikTok superstar Mario Novembre and of course Florian himself. The answers are as colorful as life itself. SOCIAL MEDIA – SOCIAL ME is a documentary about the New Social Media, its opportunities and challenges, its possibilities and limitations with exciting and very personal insights and opinions. Because social media is not a platform for filmmakers or self-promoters, but a tool for everyone. It's a medium that every artist can use to easily realize his or her own individual potential.
SOCIAL MEDIA – SOCIAL ME and its protagonists promise a new look at the exciting social media community. Director Dimitri Tsvetkov (Ost Boys) and cinematographer Jonas Schneider shot the documentary entirely with the Xiaomi Mi 11 | 5G smartphone. According to the claim “Movie Magic” of the innovative smartphone and thanks to its numerous features that are usually only found in professional equipment, an innovative film with a fresh and rich visual language was created. This was made possible above all thanks to the "Shoot like a director" options such as Magic Zoom, Time Freeze, Parallel World, Freeze Frame, Night Time Lapse, Slow Shutter or Ultra Night Video - all of which can be found on board the Xiaomi Mi 11 | 5G and their potential can be seen in SOCIAL MEDIA – SOCIAL ME.
SOCIAL MEDIA – SOCIAL ME will be available to stream on PANTAFLIX and the Xiaomi Germany YouTube channel for the premiere on May 17, 2021.
"With SOCIAL MEDIA – SOCIAL ME we have realized a wonderful and innovative production. It combines the inspiring creators in front of the camera with the technology behind it in the best possible way. Nowadays, social media and the way we consume media are inextricably linked to the smartphone. It is the starting point of creativity and brings creators and fans together via social media. That's why it was a great experience for us to shoot SOCIAL MEDIA – SOCIAL ME exclusively with the Xiaomi Mi 11 | 5G. It opens up a new perspective - just like SOCIAL MEDIA – SOCIAL ME does," says Manuel Uhlitzsch, Managing Director of PANTAFLIX Studios.
