How do you get the details about a storytelling piece shot exclusively on an iPhone? You call the director on an iPhone, obviously.
We recently had the opportunity to chat with Ty Evans, Director of MALTO and owner of Ghost Digital Cinema. If you haven’t seen the feature on professional skateboarder Sean Malto, then pretend you knownothing about it being shot on an iPhone and enjoy the story.
Also, check out the behind-the-scenes video put together by Ty and his crew.
Ty Evans is a passionate filmmaker who is eager to share his experiences with the world. We couldn’t pass up the chance to let you listen to some of that passion, so we’ve included portions of our conversation in audio format.
What challenges do you face with an “iPhone-only” production and how did you overcome those challenges?

What’s it been like having SmallHD monitors on set?
What brought you to the point of starting Ghost Digital Cinema and where are you headed with it?
