Canon HDSLR + ipad + “Eye of the Tiger” = music video

by planetmitch20 Comments

Quite a combination of technologies going on here! Using both a Canon EOS 5D Mark II (reviews) and a Canon EOS 7D (reviews) as well as several iPads, this creative group has produced a very intriguing music video.

ipad + “Eye of the Tiger” from Jordan Hollender on Vimeo.

Entire song recorded using ipad applications

We contacted the creative team and Diane Collins sent us this additional information…

This was made as a promotional piece to present our video work. We wanted to create something fun and original using the latest technology available. The song was pre-recorded using ipad apps for all of the instruments. We shot at KM Photo Studios in NYC and had one day to pre-light and one day to shoot. Time was our biggest challenge as we had a lot of footage to capture in a short period of time and on a tight budget.

Song: Eye of the Tiger by Survivor.
All instruments were played using ipad applications

Cameras used: Canon 5D Mark II and 7D – We own the 5D, so that's why we shot with that camera. We rented the 7D since we wanted to shoot slow motion.
