Just to explain the title for this section ‘Tickle Your Fancy’ is an English idiom and essentially means that something appeals to you and perhaps stimulates your imagination in an enthusiastic way, we felt it would make a great title for this new section of the site.

Fabulous Film at Sundance Film Festival Shot using iPhone 5s and FiLMiC Pro App


This is fabulous and is exactly why we promote mobile movies within our dedicated Column on TheAppWhisperer, edited by Donna Donato.

The Sundance Film Festival is known for showcasing more experimental films, but none more so than transgender prostitute movie Tangerine, shot almost entirely with the iPhone 5S.

Sean Baker’s comedy drama follows a trans woman on a Christmas Eve hunt for the Hollywood pimp who left her heartbroken. But while the film itself is surprising and fascinating, so are the means with which it was made.

Although many amateur films have used iPhone cameras, Tangerine is believed to be the first Sundance movie shot in full with an Apple product.

Baker decided to use iPhones to keep the indie film’s budget down and, by his reports, filming was “surprisingly easy”.

Actor James Ransone, who plays pimp Chester, was hesitant at first “out of pride”. “I’m like, Jesus Christ, man, I was on The Wire. I’ve ended up in in iPhone movies!” he told The Verge.

“Yes you can make a beautiful-looking film on a shoestring budget but you have to know 100 years worth of filmmaking.”

The crew used the Filmic Pro app to make Tangerine. A Steadicam help stabilise the phones and limit shaking, while anamorphic adapter lenses were attached to the cameras for a “cinematic” look.
