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

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

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.

Your mobile device is an awesome way to start working on a small visual project because you often have it with you all the time. The great part about PremiereClip is that you can shoot, edit, and upload right from your phone or tablet. The ability to edit, do some amount of post work, and quickly share it is the HEART of PremiereClip. However, if you have a CreativeCloud subscription, you can take the project that you just edited with your finger into a more substantial NLE. Read More

Defining The Art of Shaving with Blackmagic Design
Defining The Art of Shaving with Blackmagic Design
For many men, shaving their facial hair is a necessary evil. If they are not careful, they risk nicks, cuts and irritation, and the process is tedious and sometimes downright uncomfortable. Although shaving can be a chore, it's a must for many, unless they want to look like a member of the Duck Dynasty family. One of the questions that employees receive most often is "What's the difference between a traditional and royal shave?" To help answer this question and help customers better understand its services, Director Christopher Califano recently shot a video that brought the shaving experience to life using the Blackmagic Cinema Camera EF, Pocket Cinema Camera and DaVinci Resolve color corrector.

'Bob and the Trees' Survives the Winter Thanks to Help from Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera
Director Diego Ongaro knew he had his star when he first encountered Bob Tarasuk six years ago. "I was instantly attracted to his magnetic personality and captivating stories. Logging, his main line of work, became a fascination for me. I've often wondered about the history of the plank you buy at the lumberyard or the log you throw in the fireplace," explained Ongaro. "I'm captivated by the physical connection between the human body and the trees, the balance of power when it comes time to take a tree down and how small a man is compared to a giant oak. Yet, the paradox is that man usually wins." Read More
