Film students use iPhone 4 to produce and distribute TV series

We’ve seen some pretty amazing things made with the iPhone camera. Whether it’s a motorcycle commercial filmed entirely by the Apple smartphone or a professional photographer taking stunning headshots, it seems that artists out there are putting out some top-notch work. Now a pair of film students are producing a TV series shot entirely with the iPhone 4.

Michael Koerbel and Anna Elizabeth James, both film students at USC, made a short video called Apple of My Eye with the iPhone 4 and it became wildly popular on Vimeo. Now the two have set up their own studio and have started filming a television series with the Apple smartphone entitled Goldilocks.

How can you watch the series? According to All Things D:

Now they have an ongoing series, “Goldilocks,” that is not only filmed on the iPhone, but also distributed via the App Store. New episodes come in as updates to their app, which runs on the iPhone and iPod touch. The app, which is free, includes some Apple iAd advertising, though Koerbel said that hasn’t been a huge source of revenue.

After watching a few clips, I’m pretty impressed with what the two have been able to put together using the iPhone. Of course, it looks like they had a bit of aid with some fish-eye lenses, mounts, rails and tripods, but it doesn’t take away from the experience. While watching the films, I kept thinking, “Wow, I can’t believe this was shot on an iPhone 4.”

Take a look at some of the videos below and let us know what you think! Perhaps it might even inspire some of you filmmakers out there to do a little iPhone shooting yourselves.
