Besides the fact that this was shot on an iPhone, Tangerine directed by Sean Baker (@lilfilm) is proof that simple stories can still be intriguing, especially if they are given original, under-represented characters. Rated R in the most R sense of the word, so be warned.
Even with a DSLR, we would have ended up having extra crew members, and I would have had to find certain lenses, which I just didn’t have the budget for. So what we did is just start looking at iPhone experiments on Vimeo, and we were very impressed by what we found. We realized that, instead of spending money on the equipment, we could put the money on screen on things like locations and having extras.
