I really wish we could talk about what this means to the art of
feature films, and if there might not be a better term to use for the
of using cellphones to create a piece (scripted? plotted? lighted?
directed? edited? finessed in any way?) for which the term "feature
may not serve at all. Could one call it instead "cellart?"
"handheld lowres video
It's not the art itself I would question, just the use of the term
"feature film" to describe it.
