Tristan Pope Photography took to the skies over NYC with the iPhone 6S + to get some of the first 4K aerial footage via an amazing company called #FlyNyon. They fly open door helicopters directly over some of the most amazing sights NYC has to offer, deemed as “the Ultimate Photo Experience”. And it truly is! See what it is like to #FlyNyon and how our different gear holds up against the extreme conditions! Will the screen break? lol

An article about Tristan Pope Photography:
Tristan Pope has been using new technology to create art for years. Back in 2004, he was one of the pioneers ofmachinima. When he saw an opportunity to create a digital set from inside the internet multiplayer role-playing game, World of Warcraft (WoW), he began work on a series of WoW films. Then, he uploaded them to websites like FilePlanet. Tristan’s machinima films were downloaded over a million times in a pre-YouTube world. It was a big deal.

“SnowDay” just won first prize in Philip Wesley’s musical contest for best use of his music in a short video. We re-edited this one just for his competition with his song Unbridled Spirit. I was always a huge fan of his music, it also being used in Romance in NYC. So it is an honor to win this! Congratulations everyone! Especially Brittany Cavaco for weathering the freezing cold and looking so strong and graceful doing so!

I don’t actually have any to name off the top of my head. I may be ingrained in the industry but I have always created because it was motivated by a feeling, idea, or mood. Sure I may watch things like Band of Brothers for inspiration, but I try not to idolize nor watch too much to replicate because I want to develop my own feel. Sometimes I end up creating something that mirrors something someone has already done, to me that is OK because we all get inspiration from one another but I don’t go out of my way to study someone else’s techniques. I am a trial by error kinda person.

“Romance in NYC”
In 2015, it’s no longer uncommon for filmmakers to use smartphones instead of film cameras. Still, only over the past few years has the quality of the cameras, lenses and app software become so impressive that phones can be used to capture DSLR-quality cinematic moments.
If you still needed convincing that smartphone cameras are more than capable of professional results, “Romance in NYC” may do the trick. Shot not only entirely from the a single character’s point of view, but using nothing more than an iPhone 6 and a selection of apps and accessories, the 15 minute short was crowdfunded on Kickstarter in late 2014 and is now making the rounds of the festival circuit. I caught up with director Tristan Pope to find out what made him put down his pro-camera kit for a smartphone, how the iPhone 6 delivered in unexpected ways, and why he ended up wearing a GorillaPod like a Hannibal Lecter mask.
This Emmy Award-winning director and photographer shot his latest film, “Romance in NYC” on an iPhone 6. In this guest post, he explains why and how he did it.
I love my iPhone 6+, and have been shooting, editing, and publishing lots of glorious video with it, on the road.
I really enjoyed seeing Tristan Pope‘s behind-the-scenes exploration of how “Romance in NYC” came to be. “The iPhone has limitations,” he says “but the limitations themselves spur creativity.” Couldn’t agree more.
Romance in New York, by filmmaker Tristan Pope, takes the point of view of a boyfriend waking up to spend the day with the love of his life. Pope wanted to show the intimacy that comes from everyday moments, and the subtleties and nuances that exist in every expression and every action, even the ones that might seem small. What’s more — he shot the entire 15-minute film on theiPhone 6.
Romance in New York will be showcased at film festivals around the word. Check out the trailer, above, and the behind-the-scenes video below. Maybe, like me, it’ll inspire you to stretch the limits of your own iPhone videos.
