"Olive" is the first full length feature film shot completely on a smart phone, starring two time Oscar nominated actress Gena Rowlands
Olive is the first full length feature film shot completely on a smart phone. A 35 mm lens adapter was fabricated to fit the smart phone in order to achieve a shallow depth of field. The film stars two time Academy Award nominated actress Gena Rowlands (the Notebook, A Woman Under the Influence, Gloria). The film simply put is about a little girl that goes into the lives of three people — an old lonely woman, a foreigner having a hard time acclimating in the United States, and an obese man — and transforms their lives without saying one word!
The financing of Olive was done independently of any corporation. The goal now is to be the first film to not only be shot on a cell phone but to also be the first independently financed feature film on 2,000+ theaters across the United States without the backing of a Major Studio.
The Film also stars John Scurti, Chris Maher, and Ruby Alexander. Other names affiliated with the project include Ben Lear, Randi Zuckerberg, and Skywalker Sound did the sound design.
