“Shooting on the iPhone has become more of a directors’ tool to lower inhibition of first-time actors and nonprofessionals. While it’s helped me become more mobile, no pun intended – running around, finding tight areas and different ways of moving the camera – to me it’s more about using this device to catch candid moments. That’s the biggest thing.”
