To celebrate the launch of its new ‘camcorder phone’, the N93, Nokia has created an online video-sharing site to show offs its talents.

The Nokia NSeries Studio will eventually be a YouTube-style site open to everyone, but will initially only show short films from ‘creative visionaries’ like Gary Oldman, who announced the service recently in Berlin.

Much like our sixth form drama project, this crack team of director talent will all be making short films under the loose theme ‘open your eyes’ which will be available to download to NSeries phones over the next few months.

Your chance will come this summer, when Nokia will open up its studio to the creative efforts of the unwashed masses. We’re planning a film about the world’s loudest clock radio, which shows our editor opening his eyes to 200W of Slipknot.

The service follows Nokia’s deal with the photo-sharing site Flickr, which lets you blog photos directly from your N73 or other NSeries phone with the minimum of fuss.

Clearly, the Finnish giant fancies planting its size 15s in the content-sharing field, but remained tight-lipped at its Open Studio conference about whether a music service would be its next port of call.

With the N91 finally shipping, it certainly seems the next logical step. For more info on Nokia’s NSeries Studio, go here.
