In the spirit of Halloween, Roy H. Wagner ASC, the cinematographer who shot A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors, has partnered with Moai Films, VideoVillage.Pro, and Global Village, Inc. to highlight the famed horror movie series by shooting a scene from the original 1987 film on Apple‘s iPhone 11. The question is: can a new iPhone 11 Pro compare to a film camera?
Wagner utilized some of the original crew from the ’80s picture to rebuild the sets and reshoot a thrilling chase scene. Directed by Lukas Colombo of Moai Films, a production crew of 40 people came together to recapture a piece of the Nightmare on Elm Street project using modern technology.
You can get a behind-the-scenes look at the re-shoot above, as well as witness a side-by-side comparison, as Freddy Krueger meets the iPhone 11 Pro.
