Spike Lee and Nokia are joining forces to create a new short film that will be comprised of videos people have created with their cell phones, The New York Times reports. Participants will upload their contributions to a Web site, where Lee and other directors will review and revise the content. Web site visitors will vote on their favorite videos, and winning entries will be edited into the film. Lee is also planning to write a blog that will provide advice for young filmmakers.

“The project is an experiment for Mr. Lee, but it is also a way for Nokia to promote its wares,” The Times mentions. “Cell phone companies are all trying to position their products not just as devices for talking, but as multimedia devices that can play music, search the web and capture video.”
