Do you know if the video was in the phone's internal storage or a removable SD-card.
Because if it was in internal storage, think you might be hosed. I believe the S3 only has MTP mode when connecting it to a computer. AFAIK
file undelete and recovery tools won't work with MTP mode, only USB disk mode. Plus I'm not sure how well Macs handle MTP mode anyway. If it was on the SD-card, you can put the it in a card-reader and run a tool like Photorec, which is a file undelete and recovery tool.
The most important thing at the moment, is not to store anything else, because that will overwrite the deleted video, and you'll never get it back.
