    For this commercial shot ENTIRELY with the iphone 4, the phone was mounted to a remote control helicopter, a steadicam, and a dolly: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gTYEBui-P94

    The results are amazing... when mounted to a stabilized platform, the iphone video is incredible. This commercial was shot by FLF Films for the Glenn Group and their client Minelab.

    Looking forward to seeing a video (commercial or music video) shot entirely on the iPhone 4 AND edited entirely on the iPhone 4.

    Plausible.


    In iMovie for iPhone:

    Photos can be imported, time adjusted, then exported as video.

    This lets you add text to the "photo" as well creating a custom transition.

    I have a picture of pure black and set it to 6 seconds in length. Each time I want a transition or fade I just import that 'video' into the timeline, add text (or not).


    I also use a gorillapod with a modified butterfly clip as a field expedient mount for the iphone :D

    Very interesting.

    No doubt we will be seeing a lot of this in the future. Also a slew of shorts and maybe even some full future films. Will be really interesting to see what this begets going forward.

    Why is it only in 360P? What happened to 720?

    I just finished up shoot and editing a short film on iPhone 4

    Hey, saw the thread and thought I would comment ... I just finished up shooting a short film on iPhone 4 ... and edited in iMovie app. Entirely within the camera ... it was amazing. Limiting at times, but for what we needed, actually in some ways simpler. Give it a watch if you have 2 minutes!

    HOLY CRAP THAT WAS AWESOME!!!

    How do you take clips out of a sequence of film? Like if i want to cut out a section in the middle of something i shot, how would i go about doing that in imovie? I've used it a little and posted a video. but all i could do was add a theme! XD

    on the heli trip it seems like the camera is "jellying" or whatever the term is where the everything is kinda wobbly. You can see it in a couple other iPhone 4 vids while its being hand held.

    Hi Jay ... you just hold your finger on the clip and it lifts off the sequence, then you can slide it and rearrange the whole order. As far as the jelly looking shots in the heli video, we had the same thing ... we couldn't figure out if it was the 115 degree heat or if it was some sort of stabilization in the iPhone ... we're going to have to do some more tests and find out.

    what did you use to mount the phone? That seemed way too smooth to be handheld!

    Check back in a few days ... we're currently editing a full behind the scenes video of how we did all of it ... we had two other iPhones capturing the process ... we had it on a slider, a dolly, and also rigged a crane like apparatus for the crane up away from the engine coming out of the tunnel. I'm telling you - it was so much fun. :)

    That's what I'm trying to figure out as well. Whenever I press and hold my finger though it's like a whole section gets selected from like the very beginning to the middle...

    I can't isolate it to just the spot that I want to move or edit.. I can't figure this out for the life of me...
