The creators of a new Belgian political comedy show, 16, have announced that it was exclusively filmed with iPhones. The six-part series is being shown online.

Sadly, from the trailer, you can tell. That may, though, reflect what appears to be a relatively low-budget production. There have of course been some much more impressive movies and ads shot on iPhone … 

Tangerine was a hit at last year’s Sundance Film Festival, with creator Sean Baker insisting that the choice of the iPhone wasn’t just a marketing gimmick.

The Painter of Jalouzi was a documentary shot entirely on an iPhone 6s Plus, and luxury car-maker Bentley has twice demonstrated what can be done with the iPhone when paired with full-on cinematic accessories.

Apple has of course also taken full advantage of the opportunity to demonstrate the capabilities of the iPhone camera, striking a deal to shoot the Burberry London Fashion Show entirely with iPhones, shown off in a 30-second ad. It also used iPhones to shoot a 90-second ad to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Mac.
