A power outage at the television studio where an episode of the French TV show On n’est pas Couché (We are not Asleep) was being recorded led producers to record the rest of the episode using some handy iPhones.
The incident was reported by Pure Médias, which says that power was lost just one minute and 45 seconds into filming, and it lasted for three hours. Emergency lighting kicked in, but the TV cameras were still not able to function, so the decision was made to continue recording using iPhones.
The video below shows the moment the power went out, along with footage of filming being completed with iPhones.
While this is likely the first time an actual broadcast TV show has been shot on iPhones in France, there have been a number of ads, documentaries, and even independent films shot using Apple’s handsets.
