Phone film trailer

In a recent article… I wrote about a film shot entirely on cellphones. Well, this just came through to my inbox:

DV8 Films in Johannesburg, South Africa, have released the trailer for SMS Sugar Man, the first feature film in the world to be shot entirely on cellphones.

To view it, please visit the website and go to the downloads section on the left.

Update: Having just watched the trailer, I stand by what I said earlier about the inferior quality of the footage being visibly distracting. I notice that the grading is inconsistent, which may just be because they didn’t grade it; however I suspect it’s because the footage would be too heavily compressed to allow for any grading latitude whatsoever.
