Abhishek Jain opts for ‘phonography’ method for Dinga, a film shot on an iPhone
The makers have released the film’s first poster and the making video
In order to provide a different kind of cinematic experience for the audience, director Abhishek Jain has decided to shoot his film, Dinga, on an iPhone. The makers have released the film’s first poster and the making video, both of which have garnered attention.
“I strongly believe that the future of cinema will be on smartphones, especially with 4k resolution cameras being widely-used. Moreover, Dinga is shot using the phonograph method, a type of technology that allows us to attach lenses to iPhone, in order to get the cinematic look,” says Abhishek, adding a USA-based company, Beast Grip, invented this technology around the time he started shooting for his film. “We are proud that we are the first ones to experiment with this,” he adds.
The director plays an important role in Dinga, which stars Aarava Gowdru and Anusha Rodrigues. While the film's music is by Suddho Roy, the editing is being done by Srikanth of KGF fame.
The makers, who are looking at a November end release, plan on launching the audio towards the middle of this month.
