If you’re only using your iPhone 11 Pro for selfies, wefies and food porn snaps, let filmmaker David Leitch demonstrate what else you can do with it. Picture this: instead of shooting food pics, you can shoot a food fight.
David Leitch, the director of John Wick and Deadpool 2, used an iPhone 11 Pro to make a 90-sec short for Apple’s ‘Shot on iPhone’ series. Called Snowbrawl, the short, about a young girl and her pals engaged in an epic snowball fight, is filled with stylo milo stunts and slow-mo shots, all beautifully captured.
Says Leitch in the behind-the-scenes featurette (embedded below): “We’re getting creative with the flexibility of the camera — how light they are and how mobile they are… things that are hard to simulate with big film cameras, we are able to make this classic, kung-fu composition very quickly and easily.”
Other filmmakers who have used iPhones include Sean Baker who filmed the award-winning street romance Tangerine with an iPhone 5s, and Steven Soderbergh who shot the psycho-thriller Unsane and the sports drama High Flying Bird on iPhone 8.
High Flying Bird is on Netflix; Unsane is on Fox+.
