Apple likes to use film directors to show off how awesome the latest iPhone camera is and the iPhone 11 Pro is no exception. It tapped Rian Johnson (Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Knives Out), George Nolfi (The Adjustment Bureau) and others to shoot short films using just the phone.

Here’s Rian Johnson’s film, “Paris 9/19”.

Last year, Steven Soderbergh shot the movie Unsane entirely on an iPhone 7 Plus (in case you missed it, check out the trailer here). This movie got a full theatrical release and grossed $14.2 million worldwide, by the way, and has an 80% Certified Fresh score on Rotten Tomatoes.

Here’s what Johnson had to say whether he would shoot an entire movie on a phone like Soderbergh did:

Anyway, here’s George Nolfi’s short – “Tough Crowd”.

“It was a lot of fun shooting a project on a phone knowing I had three lenses to choose from,” said Nolfi. “It felt like a hybrid production, possessing the advantages of a phone yet with some of the key creative tools of traditional studio filmmaking.”
