Iphone Filmmaking Tips
The iPhone has become one of the tools used by indie flimmakers to get the job of filming done. It has become a part of the possible tools used by film makers because of its availability. Many of you have one and for the first time are considering using it to shoot a short film or perhaps even a feature. The question is can this little device get the job done?
The answer is yes. Hundreds of short films have been shot using the iphone 4s and the iphone 5. The quality of the video that these smartphone can capture is equal to some of the Dslr camera that are very popular with indie film makers. This site began as a place where films made with these cameras would be shown and tips would be offered on how to make your own iphone film. I believe this is going to be the year that we re-focus on the basics of iphone film making. I will offer more tips and more short films than in the past.
First up is a tutorial on how to shoot using a iphone.
Next we will look at two short films shot using the iphone 4s and the iphone 5.

As you can see the quality of these short films can stand up to that shot with video camcorders and Dslr cameras. It will only be a matter of getting use to using these smartphone with standard film making techniques that films equal in quality to those using standard cameras will be produced.
One more thing before we call it a post. If you have not checked out Vimeo then I suggest that you do. The video quality there is amazing. I love youtube, but Vimeo is pretty impressive.
Good luck with your iPhone films. Please take a moment to share this post with a friend and to stumble us on stumbleupon.
