This Dope Music Video Was Shot With an iPhone and a Weird Lens Adapter


The video for Leverage Models’ new single, “Sweep,” is a total heart-stopper. The slow-motion footage and shallow depth-of-field perfectly matches the song’s billowy dance rhythm. It’s absolutely gorgeous, and it might surprise you to learn that it was shot on the absolute cheap for less than $500. No fancy video cameras here—just a couple of iPhones an a snazzy lens adapter.

Even at a deserted beach on a weekday in late September we were stopped by a group of teenagers who wanted to see what we were shooting with.
