Breve storia dei film girati con degli smartphone

Lenti e software presenti nei moderni telefonini (specialmente quelli di Apple) hanno una qualità talmente elevata da permettere le riprese di un film. Non è una novità, per noi, ma questo articolo fa un po’ il punto.

Tangerine wasn’t just noted for its terrific casting or engaging story, it was a marvel of filmmaking. Baker and co-DP Radium Cheung shot the feature using multiple iPhone 5s and anamorphic adapters to get a look for the indie film that was never seen before. Given the size of the camera, they could get into tighter areas and achieve shots that would’ve been impossible with traditional camera gear. It wasn’t just because Baker wanted to shoot with an iPhone, it was because the budget of the film called for a unique solution. That budget restraint signified a grand change for filmmakers everywhere.
