Upcoming Avengers movie uses video shot on iPhone
Seamus McGarvey, cinematographer of the upcoming Joss Whedon-helmed, Marvel Comics hero-filled Avengers movie, revealed in an interview with IFTN that some of the shots in the film were taken with an iPhone.
The beauty of photography or cinema is that you make every choice based on the content at hand. On The Avengers, I did a couple of shots on the iPhone and they are in the movie. In fact, they are in the trailer! I understand that sometimes there is no choice and you have to go for the cheapest option, but if you are limited for choice, you can still make poignant decisions that will effect the look of the film
Check out the trailer and let us know if you can figure out which Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye, Black Widow, or Hulk shots assembled into the Avengers movie are the iPhone ones.
UPDATE: McGarvey has issues a clarification to Hollywood Reporter saying iPhones were used on-set -- as phones and mobile devices -- but not used for filming.
