This is an awesome How To Shoot Cinematic iPhone Footage tutorial that was recently created by Richard Lackey.

Who is Richard Lackey and should we trust what he's sharing? I've followed him for a while and believe in his skills, but here's his bio:

Richard Lackey is a filmmaker, colorist (CSI), digital cinema technology and workflow specialist with an extensive knowledge and experience of digital motion-picture imaging and post production. Presenting news, facts, guides and opinion on the technology and issues at the nexus of the art, science and commerce of digitally produced cinematic content. Full member of Colorist Society International (CSI) and Digital Cinema Society (DCS).

And why would we care? Well, we've always cared about the tools and the story and tho planet5D has focussed on DSLRs, there are really all kinds of great tools out there and the iPhone is indeed one of them.

Should you shoot entire projects on the iPhone? Well, that's up to you, but if you want to do it well, then this wonderful cinematic iPhone footage ‘how to' tutorial series will be just what you need!

And if you're wondering, here's the link to Filmic Pro – the iPhone app Richard is using.
