Who knew the iPad 2 with a back camera with less than 1 megapixel can be used as a professional filming device? The guys at Remedy Films have shot an entire music video using 4 iPad 2 units in a low-light set with pro and DIY steadicam rig.
The name of the song is NEED by Eddy.
According to Remedy Films;
We knew it wasn’t designed as a professional videocamera in the slightest, so we would be stuck with whatever results we got. We probably shouldn’t have filmed in a dark setting, but it actually worked well in a “party” environment, plus it fit the song perfectly! We still treated the cameras as “professional cameras.” we had one mounted to a steadicam rig, one was on a Kessler Crane Cineslider, and the other one was on a DIY hand held rig. The fourth iPad was held by Eddy for a few shots of her singing and dancing.
The whole filming took 5 hours. Editing the video took 12 hours (don’t think they edited it using the iMovie though)… and guess what, they spent 8 hours in line to get their hands on 3 iPad 2s. Haha. Check out the music video below.
