Waking up to Life is one of the best examples I have seen.
Among the latest batch of films posted to the Smart Movie Making Channel are a couple of films made in the Alps by Les Films Associes, and a great warm up to the skiing season.
Here is one of them:

Love the 8mm app, and soundtrack.
While Take Away Sounds’ Daniela Mastrandrea. Pianista, compositrice e autrice S.I.A.E. Nasce a Gravina in P. il 24 maggio 1981 is a simple, elegant and beautifully filmed work that focuses on the pianist and again allows the intimacy of the iPhone to capture the moment in an unobtrusive way.
