There really need to be some kinds of limits placed on the democratization of film-making, simply for quality control purposes.  In my opinion, an iPhone should not be used as any kind of recording medium.  You should at least be using some kind of DSLR.

 

What kind of video will this be?  What kind of look do you want?  Do you have access to lights?...

Phones gave variable frame rates, so can gave problems when editing with many NLEs.

Use lights and a tripod. And maybe take a few workshops or classes, or lower your expectations a bit, before shooting your first video project.
