If you know your upper echelon neo-noir movies you know about Takashi Miike. The prolific filmmaker is a controversial figure in contemporary cinema, but one can't ignore his cult classics such as Audition and Ichi the Killer. Apparently somebody at Apple knows what's up and got in touch with Miike to create the short film Midnight, based on a manga by none other than Osamu Tezuka, the father of manga. The 19-minute short film was made by the filmmaker using only an iPhone 15 Pro. Apple has also released a making of-video to showcase how he did it.

“Mr. Tezuka is something of a God among manga artists so it was an honour to take on the challenge of expressing his work using only iPhone. As we were shooting, I naturally began to challenge myself to think about how we could make a work unique to iPhone, beyond the usual approach to a film. I truly felt that the iPhone has the power to do things that a conventional movie camera can’t.” - Takashi Miike
