The Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director revealed his iPhone film on social app Vero

Zack Snyder has just released his latest short film, Snow Steam Iron, which was shot completely on an iPhone.

The four minute short premiered on social networking app Vero and is a no-dialogue, gritty revenge film set in period New York City.

The whole shoot was reportedly filmed within a weekend, with Snyder enlisting the help of friends and family alongside some budget filmmaking gear.

Watch the video above for the short film trailer, which can be watched for free on Vero if you download the app and sign up for an account.

Smartphone filmmaking has come a long way in recent years, with the latest iPhone 8, 8 Plus and X all allowing 4K filming at 60fps.

Alongside this, smartphone specific gimbals, lenses and editing apps have been developed by leading camera companies to assist your filmmaking capabilities.

Snyder used the Beastgrip Pro, filmmaking go-to app FiLMiC Pro, ExoLens by Zeiss, and Kessler gear to film the short film, which looks like it has a much higher production value than it does. He also used the DJI Osmo Mobile to control some drone aerial shots in the short.

In a recent interview with Wired, he said that one of the reasons for making the short film was to show his future students of a filmmaking course at the ArtCenter College of Design in California that anyone with a phone can make a film.

After realising that he had not made a smartphone film himself, he set to creating this impressive short film.

That sounds like sound advice to us and with plenty of accessories and help, smartphone filmmaking is a great tool for any amateur filmmaker.
