His Honour Judge Grobel refused to name the three teenagers
The girl was led to the eighth floor of a block of flats by the 14 and 15-year-old attackers who were 'determined to get sex'.
The prolonged assault, on an estate in Peckham, south east London, was interrupted by teachers who came to the scene after a friend of the victim raised the alarm.
The sickening four-minute video was extracted from a phone belonging to one of the youths.
Jurors at Inner London Crown Court were played the footage showing one teenager pushing on the victim's chest as he raped her, while his friend forced her to perform a sex act.
The boy filming the incident was then seen reaching into frame to make an 'OK' sign with his fingers.
Two of the rapists bowed or covered their faces while the explicit video was played as they sat in the well of the court with their parents.
Judge Peter Grobel refused to name and shame the attackers as he passed terms of seven years and six years on the two 16-year-old boys.
The 15-year-old, who was found guilty of aiding and abetting the sex crime, was sentenced to three years.
The attackers’ families could be heard wailing in the public gallery as the sentences of detention in Feltham young offenders' institution were handed down.
The judge told the teenagers: 'You three, acting together as a group, were determined to get sex out of this girl in what you thought was the safety of the eighth floor of the block of flats.
'None of you could have cared less as to whether she was willing or not.
'Going up in a lift a knife was produced and waved around, with every intention of frightening your victim.
'Your offences are seriously aggravated by you videoing a substantial part of this sexual activity on your mobile phone.
'It was a prolonged and humiliating ordeal for this young girl.'
Turning to the first 16-year-old, the judge said the attacker had continued to show 'neither respect nor any remorse'.
Tom Wilkins, prosecuting, said the teenagers forced the girl into the lifts of a tower block after pulling a flick knife on February 24, this year.
While the girl was subjected to the degrading assault on the eighth floor, her friend went to get help at school.
Shortly afterwards the third boy spotted a teacher approaching the block and could be heard on the video saying: 'Oh s***, what are we going to do.'
They escaped and the victim was taken for medical help.
The boys were arrested within a day.
Two made no comment in interview and one admitted having sex with her, but claimed it was with her consent.
The first 16-year-old, of Kennington, south east London, was found guilty of three counts of rape.
The remaining 16-year-old, of Brockley, and 15-year old, of Peckham were found guilty of one count of rape and two counts of aiding and abetting rape.
