Check out this video (it starts after the advert at the beginning). It’s interesting because the film maker Malik Bendjelloul discusses how when he was making his documentary film “Searching for Sugar Man” he ran out of money and thought he was going to have to abandon his project because he couldn’t afford to continue shooting on film.
Until he realised that there was an app for $1.99 on his iPhone which allowed him to film in a way which makes the video footage appear like film. He used the app to get the final shots he needed and his film has gone on to be nominated for an Academy Award.
