You can make great videos with your iPhone. Do not you believe it? Steven Spielberg now gives you the perfect example.
I may sound like a grandpa now, but you used to need a separate camera with a strap to capture your best moments. Nowadays you take your iPhone out of your pocket, press record and you get started right away. Handy of course if you want to film something quickly, but despite all the functions, the image is sometimes not too good. Is that because it is not a professional camera? No, because Steven Spielberg is now showing you how to do it.
Steven Spielberg makes a video for Marcus Momford
Steven Spielberg teamed up with musician Marcus Mumford and also got a little help from his graphic designer wife Kate. Together they made a video clip of the first solo song by Mumford, who you may know as the lead singer of Mumford & Sons.
Filming with an iPhone
You might expect a whole Hollywood production with Spielberg and Mumford, but nothing could be further from the truth. The entire video was filmed with an iPhone. What makes it even more special is that it is a single-take. That means it hasn’t been cut. During the filming, Spielberg is wheeled around on an ordinary desk chair in a high school gym.

What is immediately noticeable about the recordings with the iPhone is that the image is very stable. To create a more dramatic image, the director uses a black and white filter. The texts in the picture were designed by Spielberg’s wife.
Exactly which iPhone Steven Spielberg uses is unknown. Still, the video shows that you don’t need expensive equipment to make a good video. You can see the result below!
