This film began as a test shoot for the iPhone, and turned into something of an experiment in subjectivity.
Shot on the iPhone 4, 27 Nov 2011.
Shot in 25 minutes.
Edited in Final Cut Pro.
No color correction.
Note: There is an issue with the iPhone 4 that seems to be what software developers might call an "undocumented feature" - the frame rate at which the iPhone 4 captures video fluctuates based on the available light. The lower the light, the lower the frame rate. Some of my shots were at 29.97fps and some where there were lower lighting conditions were captured at 24fps. This would normally not be an issue since I prefer to shoot and edit in 24fps. However, I did not notice the frame rate discrepancy until far into the edit which was started at 29.97. As a result, some of the 24fps shots do not look as good because they have been converted to 29.97 in the FCP timeline. So, lesson learned for the next test/project.
