Sharing A Message With A Story In Your Mobile Film with Brian Hennings Episode 16

Episode 16 of the SBP Podcast: The Voice of Mobile Film
When it comes to making movies and sharing stories through film using a smartphone camera there is a focus in the quality of the footage because it’s still hard for people to perceive that you can make great films using the camera on a phone. Truth be told, you can share a compelling story through film with any camera. Using the camera on your smartphone, however, can open doors to storytellers. Whether you are an experienced filmmaker, an elderly person, a 11 year old child or someone without any budget whatsoever anywhere in the world, you now have the power to share your story through film. But what most stories do is not simply connect us but to provoke empathy and most importantly, send a message from your pocket to everyone around the world.

Brian Hennings is a storyteller by every means. He is primarily a writer and he has decided to share some of his stories through film using his Samsung Galaxy smartphone. Brian participated and attended the International Mobile Film Festival in San Diego in April 2017 with his film, Express. His newest film, Focus, was accepted this year as well and he will be attending the festival again next April. Aside from the quality of the footage he achieved with his smartphone, we discuss the story and the messages behind his films. All stories send a message, even if the filmmaker was not intending to. We discuss why it’s a good idea to pay attention to the message you send with your story during the filmmaking process.

Without giving away too much about his film, Brian discusses the message in his story and how the smartphone was the perfect camera to use to convey the message in his film.

If you are able to attend the official International Mobile Film Festival in San Diego, you can watch his newest film Focus and meet Brian Hennings and listen to him and ask questions during the Q&A Panel.
