New Shot on iPhone video: whale shark research, awesome underwater photography

Apple’s #ShotoniPhone campaign continued today with a new video posted to the company’s official YouTube channel highlighting whale shark research with pretty cool underwater photography and features great videography work.

From the description.

The Maldives Whale Shark Research Programme (MWSRP) is a charity that is breaking new ground in whale shark research and fostering community-focused conservation initiatives. The field team of the MWSRP monitors the demographics and movement of different species such as whale sharks using an iOS app.

And now, watch the video embedded below.

Apple has commissioned this video from director Sven Dreesbach, cinematographers Carlos Vargas and Sven Dreesbach and producer Julia Etzelmueller.

The official MWSRP app is available for free on App Store.

Like the company’s other short films posted lately, this one was shot on an iPhone XS with a little help from specialized equipment and apps, including the Freefly Movi Cinema Robot stabilizer, the AxisGO waterproof housing for the new iPhones, the modular BeastGri lens adapter and rig system and the awesome FILMic Pro camera app.

Interestingly enough, the same equipment was used in another recent Apple-commissioned promotional footage featuring Cuban beaches while similar rigs were used in the filming of Apple’s video about a teenage athlete from American Samoa.

The new mini-film came less than a week following another shot on iPhone video of Toronto Maple Leafs’ right winger Mitch Marner.
