DV EXPO: Zacuto ZGrip

Shooting video with the iPhone 3Gs typically yields some pretty shaky results. That’s why you might want to consider adding an iPhone grip to your equipment list. There are two grips that have crossed my radar in recent days: The OWLe (which is just now entering production), and Zacuto’s ZGrip. Fortunately, Zacuto had a booth at the expo, so I was able to get my hands on the ZGrip Jr. and Pro. They both felt solid, and very well made. Both improved the stability of my shots, though not by an enormous amount (it’s still an iPhone, after all).

Mandy Rogers and Jens Bogehegn from Zacuto were kind enough to give us the nickel tour.  Sorry about the less-than-perfect picture and sound quality.

Shang-Chi Director Directed From His iPhone

I enjoyed reading this brief ScreenRant story, so I thought I’d share it here. It describes how Destin Daniel Cretton, the director of Marvel’s Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings, was forced to direct an important scene via his iPhone while in the hospital for the birth of his child! Sadly, it doesn’t divulge the details of that unusual workflow, but it’s an excellent reminder that we’re all toting the world’s most versatile piece of filmmaking gear in our pockets and purses!
