Apple showed off a few striking films produced entirely on the iPhone 12 during its October event. It made me wonder how easy it would be for people at home to try to do the same. When I got my hands on the iPhone 12 Pro, I attempted to do just that — film and edit the iconic “there’s no place like home” scene from The Wizard of Oz. Because let’s face it, right now there truly is no place like home.
I used camera tricks that you can try out yourself regardless of the phone you have. All you need is a phone or video camera with the ability to record in slow motion.
I also put Apple’s Photo and iMovie apps to the test to see exactly how much of the scene I could edit using just the 12 Pro. Spoiler alert — I had to switch over to my computer with Adobe Premiere to edit some of this scene, but I was pretty impressed with the number of things I could achieve using just the iPhone.
