The iPhone Feature Film

            The Iphone Feature Film

    This post is going to be short and dedicated to the first major feature film that has used smart phones to record a great deal of the footage. The film is titled The Bay. It was co-written and directed by the academy award winning director Barry Levinson.

    To have a film maker of this caliber deciding to shoot a motion picture using nothing but digital cameras and smart phones is going to be a game changer in the indie film world. Anyone of us with a little creativity can produce a feature using these devices.

    Here is the trailer for what many will consider the first major iPhone feature films.

The Bay Trailer:

    It will be in theaters and on demand very soon. I have seen the movie already and I can say that the best footage in the movie seems to have been shot using a smart phone. The blending of different kinds of devices used to record footage is very well done. Even the Skpe footage looks great. The Bay is a found footage film and that is the obvious place to begin with this type of film making, but the iPhone could easily be used to shoot a narrative feature length movie with the proper lighting and equipment.

    Okay that is it for today. I promised someone who emailed me that I would leave a video about a certain cell phone case. They have seen the ads on this site and wanted to know what it was all about.

    Thank you for visiting. Please tell a friend about this site and have a nice day.
