The Life and Death of an iPhone

The Life and Death of an iPhone

Sorry, I thought I’d be able to get an embed out of it. Follow the link to see the video, it’s well worth it.

This is a fantastic video from The Atlantic, shot on an iPhone about an iPhone. One of the best shorts on the use of smartphones I’ve seen in a while.

If anyone has any lingering doubt that compelling films can be shot on a phone, this creative short might squash it. Director Paul Trillo takes us through the life cycle of an iPhone from its perspective—from factory inception all the way to the screen-shattering end. Here, we get a snapshot of a young man’s life, and the mundane thrills and tribulations of being a young smartphone user. The short was filmed entirely on an iPhone and edited using the Vimeo app, Cameo.
