If you thought shooting an entire feature film with an iPhone is a headache what would you say about shooting an entire movie with a Prius back-drive/ reversing camera , and no this isn’t a Toyota commercial.
This pretty hilarious video was created by the guys at Mommy Comedy (Ryan Kelly and Andrew Heder). If you were on a set we are sure you ran into some of the crazy stuff that you can see in this mock behind the scenes parts.
So can you really make a full feature movie using only a Prius back-drive camera? we didn’t really try it (although we own a 2016 Toyota and the back-drive camera is actually pretty decent) but the limitation of the distance (it has a very wide angle lens) and the danger of a moving vehicle plus some other complications will probably drive (some pun intended) any DP mad before the film is done.
