Indie Films Shot Over Mobile


A trend to expect this year
Indie Films Shot Over Mobile
As smartphones become more portable and their features are continually improved, many are now maximizing their handsets at work. In fact, even filmmakers, especially those who are just starting out in the industry, are using their mobile devices to create award-winning short films. Due to the continuing trend in mobile adoption at video production houses, many organizations have started recognizing individuals who excel in this category. One of the popular award ceremonies for filmmakers is the iPhone Film Festival (IFF) that is now into its fifth year of awarding film makers that use iPhones in shooting their movies. Read More

Content Insider #391 - New Content Leaders
Almost everywhere you turned at NAB there was a booth featuring products/tools for indie filmmakers, educational sessions to cover anything/everything and a loosely connected next generation of producers, directors, filmmakers. The new tools, Internet and IPTV/OTT everywhere changed the face and infrastructure of the media & entertainment industry. Indies know that not everyone wants to watch another spin-off of CSI, NCIS and cockamamie formula police/fireman show. Great thing is the indie films don't have to be blockbusters they just have to find their group of people around the world who want to view their shows. Only people who seemed bewildered (and determined to protect their territory) at the show were the network, cable, studio bosses. Indies aren't worried...the tools are right...the overhead is right...the time is right! Read More

Artist of War--Chuck Caldwell
Today's independent filmmakers never know when their next great film idea will emerge, which is one of the reasons Cirina Catania, of The Catania Group, never leaves home without her basic capture/workflow tools in an on-board Explorer case. On a flight to visit her mother in Pennsylvania, her case included a Blackmagic Pocket camera, Sony A7r, batteries, a small Lumos light, extra SD cards, a Thunderbolt 2 dock, a 4TB OWC ThunderBay 4 mini and a 1TB OWC Envoy Pro EX. She also hand-carried her MacBook Pro and a small tripod. Because of weight and space limitations, tools like extra lenses and other "nice to have" equipment were left behind. Read More

Indie Filmmakers Bring Cinematic Look to
Upcoming indie feature "The Great American Movie Hustle" follows filmmaker Michael Anton and actor Michael Monsour as they attempt to create an epic cinematic film about making an epic cinematic film. Along the way, the duo encounters several twists and turns that mirror common production challenges filmmakers face today. Produced by Wonder Lab Films and directed by Michael Anton, the parody is presented in a mockumentary format rife with old-school humor. To achieve a distinct cinematic aesthetic for the film, Anton brought Doug Michaels on board as cinematographer, who shot the film using AJA CION production cameras. Read More

It's traditional over cable, it's OTT, it's mobile, it's aerial, it's social media, it's Hollywood, it's indie filmmakers, it's kids in school, it's all of the above. Even Lucas or astrophysicist Stephen Hawkin couldn't imagine how the world would be taken over by video content. It will be interesting to see how the battles unfold as the universe expands.
