Shooting a cinematic video on just a phone is a bit of a cliche these days: we know that it's possible and we know people do it more and more, but this latest one is worth sharing because it pushes the boundaries with shooting technique.

Vortex is a new, 1.5-minute short movie that is shot entirely on an iPhone with the help of some tools and with a lot of creativity, and it exemplifies novel camera movement that gives an exciting new perspective on New York City.

The movie is made by film-maker Tim Sessler, who recently had 48 hours to shoot in NYC, an iPhone 8 with him and the new Freefly Movi camera gimbal.

Right below, you can read how Sessler himself describes the experience of shooting this short film:
