Heart-Shaped Hall-O-Gram

My friend Russ brought a car full of camera/lighting equipment from CO to shoot the live version of Heart-Shaped Hologram. We used an iPhone, some masking tape and a tripod.

Russ wanted to test the light from a window in the hallway and we just decided to just shoot it then, leaving the rest of the equipment untouched. I'm guessing that if they were alive (Brave-Little-Toaster-style)  the cameras would have tried to bully the iPhone using a creepy song about shooting in low light as a metaphor as soon as we left the room to take a break. But right at the scariest part, they would have been interrupted by our return and the iPhone saving the day ... Brave-Little-Toaster-style. 

Basically, our live shoot was pretty magical. Something cool happens when you're willing to just show up and experiment, regardless of your plans.
