Musicians Recreate “Eye of the Tiger” Using Only iPad Apps [Video]

Speaking of music apps for the iPad, take a look at this video. A group of musicians recreated the 80's hit "Eye of the Tiger" using only iPad apps (such as Pianolo and Pocket Drums) and then photographer Jordan Hollender shot a great video of the "performance" using Canon EOS 5D Mark II and a Canon EOS 7D.

Planet 5D reports:

We contacted the creative team and Diane Collins sent us this additional information…

"This was made as a promotional piece to present our video work. We wanted to create something fun and original using the latest technology available. The song was pre-recorded using ipad apps for all of the instruments. We shot at KM Photo Studios in NYC and had one day to pre-light and one day to shoot. Time was our biggest challenge as we had a lot of footage to capture in a short period of time and on a tight budget."

Song: Eye of the Tiger by Survivor.

Cameras used: Canon 5D Mark II and 7D – We own the 5D, so that’s why we shot with that camera. We rented the 7D since we wanted to shoot slow motion.
