Lost highways and little red boots in new iPhone Film Festival submissions
Canadian singer Lindi Ortega kicks off this quick
Although she may not win the top prize for her iPhone 4 vids, we like her style and love the way she uses her cameraphone to shoot her own promos for her work, without any record company involvement.
We also like her music — and her independent spirit; Ortega is definitely part of the new wave of artists not afraid to experiment with transmedia to get her voice heard and is definitely one to watch.
Other films in the IFF2 to watch out for:
Dreams of sailing: Not much information on this
What’s Better Than This, a fantasy – or love story — by Ben O’Mar Arrington Jr and set in the Bronx with a great soundtrack by Chrisstiles.
Magician Marco Tempest’ uses three iPods in a deceptive and cunning manner in iPod Magic – Deceptions
i 4 Girl is a martial arts thriller – probably a first on an iPhone 4 — exquisitely handled by directors Zak Baney & Minha Kim.
Finally, Peter Szilveszter’s unassuming In Transit is a lovely meditation on his own journey travelling by plane alone – a kind of mini Up In The Air, complete with atmospheric soundtrack by Deep Dive Corp.
