Gary Fong is famous in the photo industry for inventing the Lightsphere diffusion system, but now he’s taking a huge step in a new direction: Fong has directed a Hollywood feature film… using only Sony mirrorless cameras.

The film, titled Best F(r)einds, stars actors Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero, who 15 years ago created the cult classic film The Room. Best F(r)einds is about a guy (Sestero) who meets a mortician (Wiseau) and goes on a wild journey with him.

Here’s a 3-minute trailer for the film (note: there’s some violence).

“The Sony a6300 and a7S II were used for the shoot. We used the new G Master lenses, 50mm f/1.4, 85mm f/1.8, and 24-70 f/2.8 mostly.” – Fong

Fong also made creative use of lighting. He says that for one shot of Wiseau on the surf with waves crashing in the background, everything was lit with a single iPhone bouncing light off an overhead white reflector.
