Smartphone Filmmaking Simplicity By Award Winner with Narelle Nash Episode 34

One day you are an actor meeting with your agent and auditioning to be cast in a film and the next day, well, maybe you are the director hiring actors including yourself. That’s the reality and opportunity brought to you by the mobile film industry. Narelle Nash won Third Place at the International Mobile Film Festival and her film, The Actor received a nomination for Best Comedy by the Global Mobile Film Awards™ 2018.

Episode 34 of the SBP Podcast: The Voice of Mobile Film™ is a fun conversation with Narelle Nash who is an actor living in Australia. When she heard about making movies with smartphones and that some notable directors were doing it, she decided to jump in and give it a shot. Her story is a comedy about what actors go through auditioning for parts in films. And yes, it’s funny. Narelle attended #MFF2018SanDiego where her film screened and she was able to witness the reaction to her film from the audience in person. To her surprise, she was awarded the Third Place award and she flew home to Australia with her trophy and a nomination in the “Oscars” of mobile film, Global Mobile Film Awards™.

Her award is proof that with a good story idea and some storytelling skills, you can make a film worthy of an award at an international film festival. Her film was selected by a panel of judges. Although people will tell you that you need to have this, or that, for making a good film…well, that’s not always the case. Narelle used an apartment as her location and a wall as a staging area, some laptops and a funny story line with good actors. Oh, and there was the lamp for light. Listen to the story she shares about how they pulled it off. It may inspire you into jumping into making that idea for a story into a mobile film today, instead of waiting to buy equipment. The Actor was her first filmmaking experience. She had some previous experience in theater and acting but she never directed a film before. She shot her film with an iPhone, if you are wondering.

And if you still doubt where mobile filmmaking can lead you, well…once you make a film with your phone and connect with other mobile filmmakers, you will be inspired to keep making mobile films. Don’t be surprised if you hear about her next mobile film for #MFF2019SanDiego.
