Expactica.com reports that Dutch director Aryan Kaganof (Space, Alles Goed — I dunno that one either) has made a movie shot via mobile phone! Wicked! There’s a few more sentences about the project: Here.
Muzagga who runs About Moblogging (and also www.mobilblogg.net) read Alfie’s comments about three.co.uk’s My Gallery moblogging service which I posted earlier.
