The Life and Death of an iPhone

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.
