By Micah McWhorter

Have you ever watched a movie and been completely blown away by the beautiful cinematography?

I have and It has often discouraged me to create something beautiful through filmmaking. I often ask, Why does what they’re doing look so much better than what I’m doing? Followed by the most common excuse; I don’t have the same equipment they are using. And this excuse only goes so far.

I no longer believe in the myth that you need expensive equipment to create a beautiful scene.

So in this video I challenged myself to recreate a scene shot for shot on an iPhone to prove that anyone can make beautiful images; anytime, any place.
