In 2019, filmmakers James Smith and Caroline Spence, opted to join the ranks of high profile directors such as Oscar-winner, Steven Soderbergh, and shoot their third feature film utilising the latest in mobile phone technology.
Although creating video content on mobile phones is common, many filmmakers using mobile phone technology produce short films, promos and web series… rarely full length features.
The experience of shooting on a phone, however, was a liberating one, and the team wrapped filming after only twelve days.
“With such lightweight equipment our ability to move quickly between locations saved a lot of time,” explains screenwriter/producer, Caroline Spence. “Plus we were able to seize unplanned photographic opportunities and weave them into the fabric of the story. James captured some beautiful cinematography with the camera that many would find difficult to distinguish from mainstream movies.”
Cyberlante is currently in the final stages of post-production and is scheduled to be premiered later this year.
No ordinary vigilante... Cyberlante follows the story of Matt, a young man with a dark past who moves to a new town to work in an isolated hotel run by an unsympathetic bully who has deadly secrets of his own.
Directed by James Smith and produced by Caroline Spence.
Starring Gavin Gordon, Emily Haigh, Mark Peachey, Domenic Tiberius Russo, John Savage and Mia Mills.
