Sean Baker: How to Shoot a Sundance Winning Feature Film on Your iPhone
I’ve recently been looking and studying alternative shoot methods to shoot a feature film. One name that keeps coming up is Sean Baker. His ground-breaking film Tangerine won Best Picture at the Sundance Film Festival is 2015. The film was also produced by the indie film legends Jay and Mark Duplass.
Tangerine was shot completely in an iPhone. Yes an iPhone. The great thing was that after his Sundance screening no one in the audience or at the film festival knew that the film was shot on an iPhone.
What I respect about Sean Baker as a filmmaker is that he didn’t focus on the technology when promoting his film, he let the story, actors and film speak for itself.
