Grammy winner records video on iPhone
Multi-Grammy award-award winning musician LeAnn Rimes has released a video for her new single that was shot entirely on Apple's iPhone. Jim Dalrymple's The Loop carried a story on Sunday showcasing Rimes' video for the single "Gasoline and Matches," a stop-motion music video that was the result of a collaboration between Rimes and director Ian Padgham.
"Using the iPhone camera for the stop motion video made it easy, affordable and portable for us-because of time factors," said Darrell Brown, the Co-Producer of the record and video. "I had to get Ian to Dublin to film LeAnn while she was there. I had to get Ian to New York State to film Rob. It was so easy to lug around three iPhones instead of other heavy gear. iPhone to film, IPhone for playback of song and iPhone to document the fun."
"To create a video with my friends Rob, Jeff and Darrell was going to be fun," said Rimes. "When we added Ian (the director) to the mix my expectations were blown away. I am so happy we made and shot the video this way!"
The video required Padgham to fill a sketchbook of ideas for the project before shooting could begin. The stop-motion process required more than 8,000 photographs that were stitched together in order to bring the video to life.
Rimes' newest album, Spitfire, is available on iTunes. The album sells for $10.
