Every Film and TV Show Shot on an iPhone

There are fewer and fewer people that we run into these days who will argue about the quality that an iPhone or smart phone video delivers.

But still a few.

(I can remember when we had to defend Hi8 as a broadcast medium).

In any event, to quell any arguments in the future, The Observer, The Guardian's weekend edition has published a list of movies and TV shows shot on an iPhone. To protect themselves, they have titeled it: A Near Complete List of Movies and TV Shows Shot On A Smartphone.

It's a good thing they covered their rears, because I can think of a number of TV station that are now regularly airing long form stories shot on smart phone. (OK, it's not a 'TV show', but today, what is?)

The article dates from March of this year, and it is aleady a bit out of date - just to show you how fast things are moving.  But never the less, it is filled with great clips that certainly prove the point.

Here's one from High Flying BIrd

And here's all the details from WIkipedia, just to save you the trouble

The old news mantra — if it bleeds, it leads has been replaced by if it’s gross, adios. The prospect of a news-free electorate is terrifying.

The news business is in trouble. In the past decade, more than 2400 local newspapers have closed. NBC Nightly News gets 5 million viewers per night, in a nation of 340 million people, so most people are not watching. What are they watching? Netflix.

For most of human history, people lived in a world without news. The concept simply did not exist. The idea of news is really a 19th-century phenomenon, driven first by newspapers, and then by electronic media which brought us radio, then TV and now the web. Now, it seems, we are headed back to a world without news. Not because the technology is not there, but rather because, increasingly, people are no longer interested in news, at least in the way it is packaged now.
