The First Feature Filmed Entirely on an iPad
YouTube/OcularMigraineFilms From the film Standards of Living
Aaron Mento's career needed a kick-start. Working a 9-to-5 job after graduating Loyola Marymount University's graduate film production program in 2008, Mento had plenty of scripts he'd written, but unfortunately also had plenty of excuses for not making the leap into production. That is, until he went blind in his left eye for 15 minutes.
That health scare -- which turned out to be an ocular migraine -- launched him into a production cycle that resulted in Standards of Living, a film shot not on high-definition cameras, but on an iPad 2.
