[prMac.com] Chicago, Illinois - Eric Chauncey, a down on his luck writer takes a job offer from Mara Tophel, a seductive literary agent. But after receiving a mysterious package in the mail, strange events begin to befall him. Based on a short film by John H. Rogers III, filmmaker Nathyn Brendan Masters will not only be the lead in the movie, but also the primary camera operator as well, planning on only seeking help when needed such as for fight scenes and motion shots. "It's all about experimentation, I want to see how far I can push myself and the technology I already have," says Masters, "I'm doing a lot on my own in one, just to see if I can. I'm anxious to see how it turns out."
The idea of iOS filmmaking isn't new and has been gaining amazing ground with hobbyist and pros alike. In 2012 Aaron Mento released a trailer for his movie "Standards of Living" the first feature film shot completely on the iPad 2 with it's 720p camera, but one year earlier Majek Picture's used iPhones and the iPad 2 not only to shoot their action series "Goldilocks", but also edit the footage.
Companies are even marketing various lenses and accessories for not only for the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch allowing them to emulate some of the image control of modern DSLRs. Masters himself has just published, a 99¢ eBook only "mini guide" about production with iOS Devices, detailing the apps and hardware needed to aid in the iOS Filmmaking process entitled "The iOS Filmmaking Quick Guide," a follow up to his last book "The Youtube Producer's Handbook" both available on amazon.com. Masters has also initiated a petition to Apple CEO Tim Cook to allow iOS Devices to Export movies and pictures back to SD Cards via the Camera Connection Kit.
The Perfect Letter is slated for release in mid 2014 and stars Kaylee Williams, Kelsey Zukowski, Anita Nicole Brown, Claire 'Fluff' Llewellyn and Masters himself.
