SHENZHEN, CHINA –
“In the dark, I just saw an opportunity. While everyone went back home to rest, I was ready to chase my dream,” says Pastrana. For her, the night was a time to work, and push harder.
Competing in a male-dominated sport only made her self-empowerment more crucial. “I didn’t see many women up there,” says Pastrana.
“I had to become my own role model. And from then on, I never stopped. I trained harder and harder. This was the only way to achieve my goals”, she says.
After three years of competing in the amateur circuit, Pastrana made her professional debut in 2016. At the time she was the only professional boxer in Madrid. By the middle of 2018 she was already a global champion in her weight class.
Pastrana is an inspirational figure, an example of what self-motivation through empowerment can bring. Few could, or would even want to, box at a professional level. However, her words can inspire us all. She says, “the night can be the time to dream wide awake.” It’s a reminder that while dreams and aspirations may seem remote, they may be within reach. This is a sentiment worth celebrating.
A tapestry of software and hardware in the OPPO Find X5 Pro makes this a reality. Its wide and ultra-wide cameras use large, high-quality Sony IMX766 sensors. 5-axis OIS avoids motion blur and allows for longer shutter speeds, and OPPO’s self-developed MariSilicon X NPU fine tunes the camera’s advanced processing algorithms to suit each shooting situation.
To create a night-time short film with the OPPO Find X5 Pro, take some of the creative choices made in the short film as inspiration. Note how Pastrana is not the only character here. The quiet atmosphere of the streets is brought into focus by the use of Pastrana’s footsteps as the primary soundtrack to each exterior shot. This sits in stark contrast to the traffic noise of the first few seconds of footage, shot during the day.
Director Sisteró plays with the shadows and light contrasts of the night-time city, and lets scenes bathe in the warmth of street light and the artificial lighting of neon signs. At night, each shadow can be an outlet for creative expression.
This visual language is a key part of the telling of Pastrana’s story (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g5epW6JpoCw). The phone is available from mid-March. Read more about the OPPO Find X5 Pro at the OPPO website.
