With the intention to drive awareness on pet adoption, vivo Malaysia collaborates with Petsmore to produce a short film – The PiCATsso – shot entirely on the vivo X70 series, starring and directed by Sumo The Cat in both his directorial and acting debut.
The PiCATsso, premiering on 12 November 2021, showcases a whole new perspective of the world through the eyes of the four-legged and furry filmmaker, Sumo The Cat. vivo Malaysia and Petsmore believe that this film proves there is more to daily life than meets the eye, even for a cat.
This is the third featurette where vivo showcases the X series’ professional filmmaking capabilities. Previously, vivo Malaysia partnered with award-winning director Ho Yuhang for a 2020 National Day short film, KITA, shot entirely on the X50 series. In 2021, vivo released The Incident, directed by acclaimed filmmaker Chong Keat Aun, shot entirely on the X60 series.
The vivo X70 series’s VIS 5-axis Ultra Stable Video feature, where the ultra-sensing gimbal camera, alongside its Electronic Image Stabilisation (EIS) and Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) technology, works together to capture stable, professional-level shots of chasing mice.
Much like Sumo The Cat’s own eyes, the X70 series’ camera features Real-Time Extreme Night Vision, Super Night Video, Pure Night View and Pro Cinematic Mode, which work wonders providing high-quality shots even in the lowest of lighting conditions.
Finally, thanks to ZEISS T* Coating lenses, ghosting, flare and other image artefacts are significantly reduced. For the swirling bokeh of the iconic Biotar Portrait Style, the vivo X70 series also has three ZEISS Style Portrait features inspired by the classical Distagon, Planar and Sonnar.
The PiCATsso’s post-credits scene will feature Sumo The Cat passing the vivo X70 Pro to someone who will tease another vivo short film.
