The Swarm: A short film shot entirely on Xperia smartphones

If you find yourself with ten minutes to spare and have a hankering for some “found footage” sci-fi, then you’ll want to to check out the video below.  Called The Swarm, it’s shot entirely on Xperia smartphones and edited as part of the Xperia Studio project.  What’s the premise?  As the title suggests, it’s about an alien invasion of insects that happens over London.

We won’t be the first to say this, but we were immediately reminded of Attack the Block, if only because of the feel and general theme.  Other than that we’re digging the multiple characters and the action here and feel inspired to grab our smartphones and shoot the next big thing.

Once you’re finished watching the film itself, jump further down and check out the “making of” video!
