Apple of My Eye - a Movie Filmed and Edited with an iPhone

A while back I joked with Gale Tattersall (DP of House MD) that perhaps he should film an episode of House with the new iPhone 4. He laughed and indicated "not likely." I can imagine, though, that the HD video capability of the iPhone 4 will open up new opportunities for gun-n-run video podcasting. Here you have this little unobtrusive video camera that does not stand out and you can use in places you probably would think twice about using a larger camera.

This movie from Michael Koerbel shows the potential of iPhone 4 movie making. Apple of My Eye was shot entirely on the iPhone 4. Not only that - it was edited on the iPhone with Apple's iMovie app.

Editor Anna Elizabeth James is asked in one of the behind the scenes segments: "How did you edit it?"

She answers by wiggling her fingers and says: "With my fingers."

Hmm... is that the future of post-production?

Take a look - there are some awesome POV shots that only a tiny camera could capture. Better yet, notice how the story draws you in and you soon forget the gear used to shoot it.
