Global Collaborator Team
Our team is collaborating on programs for mobile filmmakers around the world. We are ensuring a global resource for mobile film-making to encourage and inspire filmmakers to create films, tell stories and realize their dream.
"We empower the storyteller inside you through filmmaking with your smartphone." - S. Botello Productions™
S. Botello Productions™ is committed!
S. Botello Productions™ created the International Mobile Film Festival based in San Diego to create a platform for filmmakers of all ages to showcase their talents creatively by replacing the need for film/video cameras with what most people already have in their pockets and enter a film festival where only those who shoot their films with mobile cell and smartphones could compete and showcase their work. Our work in mobile filmmaking is more than the film festival. It is about creating a global mobile film resource center with many programs revolving around mobile film.
Below is our team of collaborators for S. Botello Productions™ programs. We take our relationships seriously and provide our team with respect and dignity for the work they do and their passion as collaborators in what we do. Together we can accomplish more and benefit from the rewards collectively.

Gerry Williams | Filmist Cinematographer
"It's not the camera that takes amazing pictures - the camera is just another tool. You don't tell a painter that it's the brush that makes a great painting, or the paints used. It's the filmmaker's knowledge, experience and vision that makes an awesome film, no matter the tools."

Dr. Max Schleser | Experimental Filmmaking Collaborator
“In 2006 I started experimenting with two megapixel camera phones making short films. Some folks said cell phones are not made to make films, but I thought, let’s see what’s possible. Three years later I was in Japan producing my first feature on a cell phone, which was screened at film festivals and in the Museum of Moving Image in San Paolo.
