On its YouTube channel, Samsung posted a short film. The film, ‘Behold,’ is directed by Academy Award winner Sir Ridley Scott and was shot entirely on the Galaxy S23 Ultra. Award-winning director Ridley Scott is famous for his epic Hollywood sagas, including Blade Runner, Gladiator, and House of Gucci.
Scott created his short film, “Behold”, with Samsung’s new Galaxy S23 Ultra, which runs just under four minutes. It exhibits Scott’s trademark visual flair and storytelling prowess, as well as the phone’s camera features.

Behold was shot in December in the Marseille banlieue of Kalliste, which has a bad reputation for crime and poverty. The film’s title refers to the adage “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder,” and it challenges viewers to find beauty in difficult circumstances.
The plot “follows a young man, assaulted by hostility and aggression, chased into a realm where he’s compelled to find his idea of peace,” according to an official description.
The story is a little weird. It’s about a man that an ill-meaning group of people chases. While hiding from them, he finds a horse, which he later frees. The film ends with a few poignant but ultimately positive sentiments.
The entire film was shot using the Galaxy S23 Ultra, but there was a fair number of professional equipment used to aid the phone. The footage is naturally edited using a fair amount of professional equipment, and it also used the services of cinematographer Flavio Labiano.
As part of the Galaxy S23 Ultra marketing, Samsung has hired South Korean director Na Hong-jin to develop his own project with the phone.
Ridley Scott’s production firm, RSA Films, has created a piece of narrative storytelling for the Samsung Galaxy for the second time.
