We’ve heard of filming using a single camera or a simple vid cam, but using a mobile phone? Sounds ridiculous doesn’t it? Well this young film maker seeks to do the impossible with his new film that should be a definite first, at least for some serious film makers (forget the rest of us who boast of smart phones and recorded memories).
