Feature Film Shot on iPhone5 using Moondog Labs Anamorphic Adapters

Director Sean Baker’s latest film, Tangerine, features two transgender prostitutes in Los Angeles on a hunt to find a cheating boyfriend. If that premise isn’t interesting enough to attract your interest, then consider how it was filmed: the movie had a budget of $100,000 and was filmed entirely using the iPhone 5 and New York Photonics member Moondog Labs’ $160-$175 mobile anamorphic adapter prototypes. An anamorphic adapter allows a filmmaker to convert a camera into shooting traditional 2.40:1 widescreen cinematic content.
