Amazing iPhone video + CGI for a great cause

The team at The Mill have rigged up an iPhone in a novel way in service of City Harvest. First, check out the finished product:

Then see this brief making-of:

    Thanks for the great find John! As always you bring the best to the table and rarely disappoint.
    I loved the making of video, I can’t believe they did that all with iPhones.

    That’s craaaazy. Movie magic stuff is nuts. Nuts.

    That is the best use of an iPhone in a while. Very cool. Thanks John!

    The headline of the article (“Strange mix of high & low tech…”) amuses me. I’m sure far more was invested in creating the iPhone than the motion capture & simulation software the filmmakers were using. Making a tiny pocket-sized computer with video camera, GPS, compass, GSM phone, LCD screen, able to run off of a self-contained battery for a day, is about as “high tech” as high tech gets.
    [Sure, good points. Perhaps “state-of-the-art vs. entry-level video recording” might work better, unless brevity counts. –J.]
