A NEW WAY TO MAKE FILMS
A couple of years ago we set out to make an experimental feature film. Since we all film and photograph things on our phones nearly every day, we wondered whether it would be possible to cut together a story from the clips found on a group of friends’ phones.
Our idea was to use smartphones and small HD cameras to capture improvised performances in real-life settings without the need for a full crew or a big budget, capitalising on the amazing quality footage you could achieve on a phone to the point we had to reduce the quality of the footage to make it look believable. We also came across countless amazing resources that could turn anyone with a smartphone and a computer into a filmmaker.
So rather than being just an experiment we thought this could be a new style or genre of filmmaking that anyone could get involved with.
There just needed to be a call to action…
And so we created HYPEREAL.
