eading global smart devices brand OPPO recently partnered with leading real-life infotainment player Discovery India to launch a brand-new series called Life Unscene. But it isn't the usual association that you see on the small screen. In fact, the surreal scenes have been shot using OPPO's new Reno5 Pro 5G, making it a leading contender for videography content creators across the country. Here's what you need to know about the series " and the smartphone powering it.
The Campaign Life Unscene is a campaign featuring two short videos where surreal scenes from two of India's most stunning locations were captured using the OPPO Reno 5 Pro 5G. While the first video is available to watch here, the second video is premiering on Discovery India channel on May 14, 2021.
Life Unscene follows two new-age video creators - Anunay Sood and Ganesh Vanare, as they leave behind the hustle and bustle of city life and take the road less travelled to discover intriguing cultures, people, music, food, and places through the lens of OPPO Reno5 Pro 5G. While Sood travels across Kurseong, the land of white orchids in Darjeeling, Vanare treks to Sandakphu, the highest peak in West Bengal.
The Videography Expert The stunningly-captured campaign is a testament to the video prowess of the Reno5 Pro 5G. One look at the best scenic views that were shot on the smartphone and you'll realise why these new-age video creators worked with the OPPO Reno5 Pro 5G. Catering to varied videography needs, the smartphone comes equipped with a host of features such as the industry-first AI Highlight Video feature that is based on exclusive and industry-first Full Dimension Fusion (FDF) Portrait Video System that significantly improves video quality for an enhanced video experience. Gone are the days of heavy cameras and tripods to adjust the light settings and shoot in high quality.
The AI Highlight Video feature activates smart algorithms that detect light conditions in low light and backlit shots and optimize the video in real-time to capture the most stunning videos that showcase a life-like clarity. It also supports other videography features like Live HDR and Ultra Night Video, which enabled both creators to capture breath-taking video shots and weave them into a beautiful story.
From doing away with different types of camera and light equipment to heavy batteries and the crew required to manage them frees up video creators to imagine and shoot with a level of creativity that's never been possible before. Little wonder then that the device made the video shooting and recording experience as seamless as possible for these new-age video creators. It is also inspiring to know that we can do the same with a device that fits in our pocket instead of packing heavy equipment to recreate cinematic shots.

The journey took Ganesh to a stunning altitude of 11,950 feet on Sandakphu, with unparalleled views of Lhotse and Makalu, the fourth and the fifth highest peaks in the world, flanking the majestic Mt. Everest. With a panoramic view spanning over 220 degrees covering more than 26 breath-taking peaks of Bhutan, Sikkim, and Nepal, the trek is a photographer's delight.
