First Mobile Phone Feature Film

Apparently, according to all the hype, the first feature film, shot entirely on mobile phones, has been created. SMS Sugarman (the site is down) is by Aryan Kaganof of Virus Films. It is a film that follows one night of a pimp (played by Kaganof) and his two prostitutes, in Johannesburg. Kaganof shot 60 hours of footage on a Sony Erikson W900i over 12 days. But it wasn’t just one mobile with a single POV, one scene used 8 mobiles (can I say cameras?). He is now editing the film to be released at cinemas, DVD, TV, the Net and mobile phones.
