iPhone game trailer box (SUPER COOL!)

Having problems shooting good looking previews or trailers for your game?
Sometimes the simulator just won't do it and you don't want your hands flopping around in the video.
Thats when the "iPhone game trailer box" comes in handy.

I will need to shoot video for my upcoming game soon.

Could you please explain what purpose this box serves apart from holding the camera? Would using simple tripod won't achieve the same thing?

I'm sure there is some secret hidden there that I can't see... yet

Edit: ha ha, just watched the video, answered my question perfectly!

Start your engines gentlemen, Vector Rally is out!

If you have a game were you actually need to tilt your phone to control something, just like doodle jump, you will have a steady screen, even how much you tilt it. =)

iSimulate?

Cool video guys, good luck with the game.

An easier solution though might be iSimulate (no affiliation). We use it for doing our gameplay video captures with the simulator. It let's you use a device as input for the simulator which is handy for accelerometer control as well as multi-touch control.

This is awesome.

I recently purchased a tripod for my Sony HD DV. Things are fine so far...
