Continuing the “Shot on iPhone” series of experiments started in September 2018, Apple has now released its fourth video. “Experiments IV: Fire Ice” is also the first to use the iPhone 11 Pro.
“Find out how the iPhone 11 Pro can capture incredible images of elements at their most extreme,” said Apple on its YouTube channel.
Showcasing the video work of Donghoon Jun and James Thornton of Incite, the video highlights the high-quality images and features of the iPhone 11 Pro such as slow motion. No sequence was generated by computer, they are only close-up photos of practical effects involving flames and ice.
In addition to the new 1’44 “edition, Apple has released a behind-the-scenes video that is about twice the length and details of how the effects were produced.
The “Shot on iPhone” experiences are all taken in portrait rather than landscape, and generally feature the same photographers, Donghoon Jun and James Thornton. The very first was produced by Donghoon Jun and “Sean S.”, and included a slow motion and a time-lapse video filmed on an iPhone XS.
For the second experiment, published in January 2019, Donghoon Jun and James Thornton mounted 32 iPhone XR devices on a ball time platform that captures 360 degrees of view.
The third video in the series, published in June 2019, was devoted to water.
