Freddie Wong, also known on YouTube as FreddieW, makes videos packed with dazzling special effects that appeal mainly to gaming geeks. His latest effort, Sandcastle Sensei, is born of his claim that anyone can make good videos without high-end equipment as long as you have the a good idea and the right execution. The short film was shot entirely on the Samsung Galaxy S III.
However, Wong did use a professional steering wheel-shaped stabilizer (known as a Fig Rig) to get a smooth pan, though he says it’s possible to build one using PVC pipes, too. The video was then edited with iMovie. Sound amazing? Check out the video above, as well as the “making of” below.
