Guys, this is official proof that fledgling filmmakers have no excuses to not create their magnum opus anymore. In this footage shot by A Nightmare On Elm Street 3’s Cinematographer, Roy H. Wagner, we get a look at exactly how powerful the iPhone’s new camera is.
The footage, a production of VideoVillage.Pro, Moai Films and Global Village, Inc., shot takes our main protagonist into Freddy’s boiler room and sees an entire chase complete with memorable sticky sludge and child’s skeleton.
Following the Nightmare footage, we are given a side-by-side that compares the original 35mm footage against the iPhone 11 Pro’s footage. The results are truly insane, especially when looking at how the ISO on the iPhone can all but see in the dark and through shadows. My complaint here is that shadows are necessary to fit the Nightmare aesthetic. But, it does display exactly how powerful the iPhone is.
It’s a fun project and it’s awesome to see Wagner and original gaffer, Shane Kelly at work in the Nightmare world again.
All these Nightmare rumblings as of late has us thinking something is going to happen soon for the franchise. With Elijah Wood’s recent interest in producing under SpectreVision and Robert Englund expressing interest in reprising ole’ Fred, it has us thinking that maybe we are being lead to a return to A Nightmare On Elm Street.
Freddy Krueger meets the iPhone11 Pro! Check out the final re-creation of a scene from Nightmare on Elm Street: Dream Warriors. Shot entirely on the iPhone 11 Pro, Roy H. Wagner ASC and Shane Kelly – the original Director of Photography and Gaffer for the iconic Halloween film, Nightmare on Elm Street: Dream Warriors – and an all-star crew directed by Lukas Colombo, re-created a chilling scene from the 1987 film using an Apple iPhone11Pro. How far has technology come in 30 years? In the hands of a cinematography legend, can a new iPhone 11 Pro compare to a film camera? What do you think?
