Since then, the video has seen spotlight on some of the biggest sites out there and yesterday made an appearance on the popular new media, technology and web culture site, Mashable.com.
The topic was 10 Compelling Music Videos Shot on the Apple iPhone and “Live in your Light” made the list. Here’s a glance at the list with a breakdown of each video via Mashable. See the full post here.
1. “Play” by BJSR
Shot on the 3GS, some clever motion panning helps this mellow little tune flow along nicely.
2. “Nancy Lee” by Vintage Trouble
This gorgeous video was shot, directed and edited by Emmy Award-winner Alen Petkovic. It was filmed in one day in July 2010, with the vintage look matching the song to great effect. Incidentally, one of the iPhone 4s used in the shoot (still containing the footage) was stolen soon after filming and was recovered thanks to the Apple’s phone tracking functionality, but that’s another story…
3. “This is the Moment” by Kevin Kaho Tsui
This iPhone 4 video keeps things simple, while the nice use of ambient light shows what the camera is capable of in low-light situations.
4. “Cascades” by Flakjakt
This fun video was a week-long “experiment” between the artist Flakjakt and Marty Martin. The song was composed especially for the iPhone shoot and filmed and edited in just three and a half days.
5. “Love Love Love” by Reyna Perez
Filmed on the iPhone 3GS, this atmospheric video makes the most of the earlier model’s camcorder limitations.
6. “Live in Your Light” by R. Vaughn
“No budget? No problem. We have an iPhone 4,” says the team behind this video. Shot and edited entirely on the device, this shows the potential that Apple’s mobile has to create a quality music video with a bit of get-up-and-go, some time and a phone.
7. “Garosougil” by Wonsuk Chin & Yang Jinseok
Wonsuk Chin is a Seoul-based film maker. This video for Yang Jinseok’s song was shot on and features the iPhone 4. Be sure to watch until after the credits for some behind-the-scenes stills.
8. “Solace” by Rana June Sobhany
This is about as Apple-flavored as musical endeavors come. “iPad DJ” Rana Sobhany’s “Solace” was composed entirely on an iPad and the video was shot entirely on the iPhone 4.
9. “Sarsaparilla Girl” by Dr. Pants
This colorful video was shot in just 48 hours from concept to final product. It was filmed at “POPS,” just off Route 66, which offers more than 500 different types of soda and a rather unusual, bottle-shaped landmark.
10. “Beyond Belief” by The Turnback
All but four seconds of this video were shot on the iPhone 4. The band describes its creation as “true guerrilla film making” as, apparently during the five hours of filming, they had to contend with rainstorms, mud and some curious cows.
We’re happy to see the video being well received and hope to work on something new soon!
