Not what I said but, that's what everyone would probably think which is why I made my original comment.

Sugarman is great doc, people need to check it out!

I shoot or used to a ton of super8 but I've been doing the same thing with this App and it's $2 as opposed to $100 for 3 minutes at 24fps of super (7280 film cartridge+process/deveolpment+telecine to dvcam or prores) sure it doesn't look as beautiful as the film but for a few seconds here and there it's fine.

Californication season 6 (current) uses this app in every episode for their super8, except the intro.

Love film, going to miss it but it has had its day.

I think it shows more talent if you can have iPhone shots (Without making it look out of place to terrible) - So I think it's pretty cool

The film is heavily favored to win Best Documentary, I would say he did exactly what he 'should have' done.

Still a really cool story, wonder if he used FCPX to edit it
Oscar nominated film despite being filmed partially on an iPhone. It's important.

I know, and it was that word "despite" that initially made me think he was nominated for a cinematography category; which if so, is a huge deal. But if the film was nominated for best supporting actress, then using the iPhone, while still very impressive is not the same.

8mm is a really great app. I've been using it for several years now and it is a lot of fun. One of the first apps I bought when I first got my phone. If you grew up watching 8mm family movies like I did it is a must have. And the developers are really good at updating and adding more filters and film types.

really..... a tiny, 8mp sensor is basically the same as 8mm film...

More amazing than this guy using the iphone to finish the movie, is that he also seems to be blind..
Yet he has one Oscar nomination to your zero.

This was in indie docu so he probably was also the producer

No joke. I see such things used so much as an artistic choice and it drives me crazy.

And yet when a choice to 'down grade' would make sense they don't do it. Like a little grain in The Hobbit to make it fit in with the other films. And then there was the issue of the fast forward look of most of the panning shots. I find it hard to believe there was no way to slow those down to a more normal speed. My only hope is that it might be corrected for the home video releases or at least the other two films.

And maybe, for similar screaming by movie goers, the jerky cut, shakes cam crap will be ended.

The category is about how the film looks based on the knowledge and skill of the DP and how that look fits the needs of the story being told

Not the flashiness of the tech being used. So no, that he used an iPhone matters little if it works.

iPhone camera actually performs better than 8mm film for low light.

Remember, 8mm film frame is very tiny. If you use film with an ISO high enough for low light shots, the grain becomes unbearable.

Technology has gone a long way.

I guess that I first made this comment being uninformed. Before looking it up, I assumed that it was shot A, digitally, and B, with an expensive camera like a RED Epic or Sony EX-1. Sorry about that. Believe it or not, I actually have used (and had to pay for) 8mm film in a college class and I know that you have to have plenty of light.

I do find it interesting that he shot it with the 8mm app instead of shooting clean video and making it look like 8mm film in post...I guess that would just be another expense, though.
