Smartphone Cinematography Without A Budget with Chris Stollery Episode 8

SBP Podcast Mobile Film - The Voice of Mobile Film

A film shot with an iPhone won First Place at the International Mobile Film Festival in San Diego, April 2017. At the time this podcast was published, Chris’ film was awarded Best Experimental film at the Global Mobile Film Awards ceremony, the evening of December 10, 2017.

This podcast is a series of questions about the cinematography of the film. It was shot over many months but it appears to have been shot in a few minutes in many different locations.

Chris shares some of the techniques he used but was hesitant to give away too much of the “magic” tricks he performed in order to give the film a fluid and natural appearance.

He also shared that he and his actor friends come from stage theater and therefore, they were able to monitor themselves. We discussed using great audio without microphones as well.

We asked Chris to share some tips and techniques with cinematography for our patrons on our patreon page.

Shot and recorded entirely on an iPhone and, as the title suggests, made with no money, this short film follows the debate of two cineastes as they argue the merits, pitfalls and the opportunities now afforded by new technologies to emerging film makers.

Enthusiasm and cleverness can get you so far, but is it possible to take the audience on an epic journey when you have No Budget?
