CNN Money has a great interview with actor, writer and director Malik Bendjelloul, who finished shooting his Oscar nominated documentary Searching For Sugar Man using an iPhone.

According to Bendjelloul, he ran out of money while filming with a Super 8 camera and had to finish the film using the 8mm Vintage Camera app. The inexpensive app produced footage that “was basically the same as the real stuff,” says Bendjelloul.

You can listen to the entire interview on CNN Money’s website.
