Samsung Electronics today announced its partnership with Oscar-winning writer and director
Charlie Kaufman, showing how everyone can shoot and share spectacular movies with
Galaxy’s superior camera.
Best known for Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Synecdoche, New York, Kaufman
took advantage of the Galaxy S22 Ultra’s filming capabilities to create a short visual art film
in beautiful, crystal-clear detail. The film, titled Jackals and Fireflies, is based on a poem by
Eva H.D., who plays the role of poet, narrator and lead actor in this uniquely Kaufmanesque
love letter to New York City. Galaxy S22 Ultra’s Nightography allowed acclaimed Director of
Photography Chayse Irvin to effectively capture New York’s famous night scenes, revealing
the City to viewers as if they were witnessing with their own eyes. Kaufman found shooting
with Galaxy to be an “effective approach” for bringing the film to life, and is very happy with
the final result, adding that “the finished product is beautiful.”
The partnership builds on the Filmed #withGalaxy campaign, which invites visionary
directors to demonstrate that the Galaxy S Series is the perfect tool they need to share their
epic stories with the world. In October 2021, world-renowned British director Joe Wright used
the Galaxy S21 Ultra’s 13mm Ultra-Wide lens to shoot his short film Princess and
Peppernose. In November 2021, up and coming Chinese director Sha Mo used the Galaxy
S21 Ultra to capture the visually stunning Kids of Paradise.
Jackals and Fireflies will be unveiled exclusively at the Galaxy Experience Space in San
Francisco coming with Galaxy Unpacked event on February 1. Kaufman will also present the
film at a later date in New York City.
Samsung will continue to set epic standards for the smartphone experience at Galaxy
Unpacked, with camera capabilities being at the forefront of the new premium Galaxy
