Shifting Story Ideas Into Films With iPhones with Aris Tyros Episode 9

Aris Tyros lives in Toronto, Canada. He was one of the filmmakers who traveled to San Diego for the 6th annual International Mobile Film Festival. He flew home with the trophy for Second Prize with his film shot with an iPhone 6S: How I Became A Movie Theatre Murderer. Aris’ film was the first film submitted to the festival. The film was also nominated for Best Director award at the Global Mobile Film Awards, which is an Awards Ceremony dubbed as the “Oscars” of the mobile film industry. Two days before the recording of this podcast, Aris won the award for Best Director.

Episode 9 of the SBP Podcast interviews Aris about how his film began with a concern about what to do in a situation, such as the incident which took place in 2012 where a man shot and killed people inside a movie theater. His concern travelled from inside his mind into his pocket as he reached for his smartphone and used it to turn his concern into a story and then crafted a movie to share with the entire world.

Aris shares his feelings about winning the award and then he shares how he developed the film from start to finish. We talk about acquiring the location, a movie theater, for his movie and why he insisted in using a real movie theater even after being turned down, due to the nature of his film. The app he used to film it. How he achieved the sound for his film, and why he made the decisions he made. We discussed lighting and gave some tips on achieving good lighting for a smartphone film.

Aris shared his VR (Virtual Reality) film project and we discussed the VR trend as well.

Since we are leaving 2017, we asked Aris what his plans are for 2018 and he shares another idea which he may turn into a movie next year.

We also asked him to share tips and tricks for anyone planning to make a VR film which is available as a bonus episode exclusively on our Patreon page for subscribers who support us as a token of gratitude.

The movie Aris won the awards with is 5 minutes long because in order to qualify for the International Mobile Film Festival’s short film competition, the films have to be no longer than five minutes. However, we told Aris during the interview we would share his original version. Here is the direct link to his film. Beware, it’s entertaining!
