Smartphones keep becoming more and more capable. Put in the right hands, they can create beautiful work, such as this touching wedding video.
Of course, I'm not going to argue that smartphones can replace a dedicated camera in all situations, but with good light and some well-chosen accessories, they can certainly hold their own. Such was the case with "Let's Elope in Moab." Shot by White in Revery, a wife and husband videography team from Denver, CO, the filmmakers used the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus with the Filmic Pro app along with the DJI Osmo Mobile, Beastgrip Pro, Moment lenses, and Hoya ND filters to create the film. Says the team:
The reason for filming this on the new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus was because we wanted to showcase the fact that it doesn't matter what gear you use to create an amazing film.
We tend to get caught up in the latest and greatest gear, and while there's nothing wrong with geeking out, it's always good to take time to remember the importance of good storytelling and creativity in our work.
