SHOWCASE: “Parametric” Short Shot on iPhone 6 Plus

 In Apps, Inspiration

Here’s an interesting, visual-effects short film that was shot entirely on an iPhone 6 Plus using FiLMiC Pro. Directed by Amila C. Kumarasinghe, and shot by Dumindra Nathash piers, the film has a distinctive, harsh tone that really does a nice job of capitalizing on the iPhone’s digital sensor.

The video I’ve embedded above is actually the 1 minute producer’s cut (which I prefer). The full length version is available here.  And, just for good measure, here’s some behind-the-scenes footage.
