Sam Neill and Helena Bonham Carter have taken their lockdown creativity to the next level.
The pair created a short film titled Das Fone Hell, filmed on their smartphones from their respective houses.
Harry Potter star Bonham Carter plays Neill's iPhone in the two-minute short film posted on Twitter.
"Helena Bonham Carter stars in this groundbreaking Cinema Quarantino Production DAS FONE HELL," Neill posted.
"At vast expense, filmed on two continents over what (seemed like) five years, this profound and heartbreakingly candid insight into Modern Life will shake you to the core," he wrote.
The film's plot sees Neill's phone (played by Carter) express how upset she is after he leaves the phone at home while he's out to go supermarket shopping.
He also sneaked in a quick product placement with a shot showing bottles of wine from his vineyard Two Paddocks in Central Otago.
Last week Neill had promoted the release of the film, announcing the short while donning a beret.
"You will laugh, you will cry - but mostly just from sheer pity," he tweeted.
