Content and Creativity in Smartphone Filmmaking through MINA with Max Schleser Episode 58

We wanted to share an innovative project with our mobile filmmaking and smartphone video community. MINA 2019 has partnered with Goethe Institute in New Zealand. The (Hashtag) Nucleus competition for smartphone short films is a joint initiative of Goethe Institute and MINA (Mobile Innovation Network & Association). Join co-founder of MINA, Max Schleser on the SBP Podcast: The voice of mobile film™ to discuss the project and how you can be a part of it, in episode 58.

Film-makers and creatives are invited to submit short films of 3 to 5 minutes in length, exploring issues of the environment and sustainability. The best entries will be selected, and in November 2019 the winners will be invited to a screening of the films and a three-day workshop in Wellington (New Zealand/Aotearoa). The workshop will bring together your diverse creative talents to shoot a smartphone short film on eco-tourism. Call for Entries: the environment and sustainability in smartphone films. Submission deadline is August 15.

The project by Goethe Institute is a partnership with MINA which promotes a short film competition for smartphone films from Australia, Indonesia, the Philippines, Malaysia, Myanmar, New Zealand, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. Max discusses the possibilities and provides details of what types of films can be submitted to the competition.

We also speak a bit about how MINA continues to provide global creative and innovative filmmakers and smartphone video creators an opportunity to push the limits of what can be done with smartphone and mobile devices to create stories and experimental works of art using mobile cameras. Although MINA is currently based in Australia, their next event is taking place in China. The 9th edition of the International Mobile Innovation Screening features: Mobile, Pocket and Smartphone films; New Voices : Next Generation Smartphone Filmmakers; Mobile Cinematic VR & 360° Video Production; MoJo, Mobile Storytelling, and Micro-movies & Micro-formats.

“The Mobile Innovation Network and Association (MINA) creates interactions between communities, content and the creative industries.”

SBP Podcast: The Voice of Mobile Film™ is for everyone who ever wanted to or is curious about making movies and videos using smartphones.
