Incredible times, an indie movie fully shot using iPhones:
But the story behind the camera is as surprising as what’s in front of it. Particularly because the camera used to shoot Tangerine was the iPhone 5S.
To lend the episode, titled “Connection Lost,” authenticity, it was shot entirely with Apple’s iPhone 6 and iPad Air 2 tablets.
It's a fun challenge to what is 'normal' and your assumptions as the actors themselves found out:
At first, the cast wasn’t convinced shooting with the iPhone would work. "I had some hesitancy about it, more out of pride," says James Ransone, who plays Chester, the pimp at the center of Tangerine’s love triangle. "I’m like, Jesus Christ, man, I was on The Wire. I’ve ended up in iPhone movies!"

“It’s terribly important that you constantly question the assumptions you’ve made.”
