Emily Price: "The film Searching For Sugar Man is nominated for Best Documentary at this year’s Academy Awards. But it might have not been completed if it wasn’t for an iPhone."
Love this story of a DIY approach to storytelling. And lo and behold it was heard and received by the Academy! Go indie media go!
And it actually won the Oscar!
While the amount of footage the filmmaker needed to make with his iPhone was small in terms of the overall, I think this sends a number of signals. 1 - consumer tech is getting closer and closer to industry standards and used in the right way can be effective; and 2 - this is another example of compelling content created with a DIY ethic.
I look forward to seeing more examples of where filmmaking can evolve.
A very nice film and made with a little effort. Thats fine to me.
