NSFW: Local music video shot on the new iPhone 5S
Posted on 25 Sep 2013 by Scott Lazes
Like millions of other Americans this past Friday, I went and bought myself the new iPhone 5S. There are several incredible new features on this device, but because I’m a filmmaker the one that I was the most excited about was the camera on it, which is capable of capturing video at 120 frames per second, effectively giving users the option to shoot super slow-motion video.
I wanted to shoot a music video with it ASAP, so I called local hip hop artist, SchylerChaise, to see if he’d be down to do it, which he was. Another Charlotte artist, Theo Mercado, jumped in to be the art director. We shot everything Sunday afternoon (as the Panthers stomped the Giants), I edited it that night and on Monday morning we uploaded one of the first music videos — if not THE first — shot entirely on the iPhone 5S.
