Amir Valinia Shoots A Music Video With The iPhone

Yes, this has been done before; but never this big. Amir took things up a few notches by shooting Paul Wall's new video "I Need Mo" featuring Travis Barker. I hope that Amir gives this another shot now that the iPhone 4 is out. The video quality is stunning on the new phone.

Does anyone else find this truly annoying?

Check the title at 01:24. Swisha House "Recrods". Seriously? I thought it was an intentional misspelling to be all "dope" an shit. Apparently though, it's just a plain old typo. That is pretty sad. Or should I say "sda".

Technically good, but you have to like the end result. I don´t.

Please don't turn your web into a another gizmodo whore hitting extravaganza.. We know it gets the hits but please, Lee and the team, don't sell us out for this iphone crap..

I dont know what the previous commenters are talking about. Im impressed with the result having filmed using a 3GS only... and in the BTS video i like the mention of having to use variou optical lenses attached to the 3GS in order to maintain focus and perspective.

I mean - the music is not my style and nor is the video - but the BTS, equipment used and the end result are still definitely worth watching (which is why im here - not the music) lol.

I wonder how they are gonna use this video if they ever have to broadcast it though (think - MTV) - i imagine this would be crazy mad pixellated once you blew it up to broadcast resolution...

I had no idea that shooting videos with the iPhone was anything more than a novelty. I quite like the video. It suits the song. And it proves you don't need the best camera. Just great editing software.

Simon, this will not become an iPhone website. Trust me, that is the last thing we went. The director of this video personally sent it to me and I do think it is a good BTS video. Whether you like the concept or not, there is a lot to be learned from it.

Seriously guys? Nothing constructive to say? You can't even appreciate the innovation and balls it takes to shoot a music video with one of the worst cameras in the world? Go somewhere else with that trashtalk, I don't like the subject matter either, but that's not the point.
