In the Fools Parade music video, a man in a hat and sunglasses is smiling while using an iPhone 4s.

SHOWCASE: “Fools Parade” Music Video shot with iPhone 4s

Looking for a little iPhone inspiration?  Want to induce a visual migraine?  Here’s a little something that might satisfy both!

Check out this very cool music video for Trumpeter Swan’s Fools Parade. It was directed, shot, and edited by Jeff Turboff.   First, he used his iPhone 4s to shoot the video. He then converted that into over 5,000 separate stills, all of which he post-processed with a neat little photo app called Phototropedelic.

It’s always exciting to see what happens when filmmakers hijack apps that were never meant for video.  Enjoy!

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!
