Check Out Short Film The Swarm, Shot Entirely on Xperia Arc S…Yeah, a Phone
Here is the beauty of the horror genre. Filmmakers challenge themselves to do things differently. We've seen, for example, movies made with a zero dollar budget or taken in a single shot. You never see that in other genres. You don't see anybody trying to find a unique way to shoot a buddy comedy. Only in horror do you get these unique approaches to filmmaking. And we've got a real winner for you with The Swarm.
Directed by Tom Harper, who also shares writing credit with Geoff Bussetil and Daniel Kaluuva, The Swarm is an alien invasion film based in London, shot entirely on five Xperia Arc S phones. That's right, folks, this movie was shot on mobile telephones.
Amazing, I know. Harper is an up-and-coming British director who absolutely nailed this project. For a film that was shot in two days on cell phones, it's awesome.
The film features Jacob Anderson, Alex Austin, Eloise Barnes, Steven Cree, Susan Earl, Bayo Gbadamosi, Tom Goodman-Hill, Ellen Hill, Eliza Newman and Jessica Tomchak. Scroll down and check out their work. We've included the film in its entirely (about 10 minutes) and a making-of companion piece that is well worth investing about four minutes to watch. Check it out!
