Making Features with iPhone and Loving It with Ryan and Brandie McDonald

In episode 131 I bring you independent filmmakers, Ryan and Brandie McDonald from Ogden, Utah. They submitted a feature film shot with an iPhone for the International Mobile Film Festival in San Diego back in 2020 and attended the festival this past April for the 11th edition and presented a workshop at the festival. We'll discuss their workshop on feature filmmaking with iPhone and indie filmmaking. Plus, we share some news!

Some things we discuss:

  • Feature Filmmaking with iPhone
  • Storytelling is everything
  • Building a team that works well together
  • Why you need a shot list
  • Why audio matters
