"I absolutely loved it. This was definitely the right step in a journey to break away from the traditional point and shoot on your smartphone. If you're looking to get serious about taking your mobile filmmaking game to the next level without having to go to a traditional film school this is the place to be." Mario Romero

What We Can Do For You

We are available to present workshops, teach mobile filmmaking with iPhones and include an inspiring speaking presentation by founder Susy Botello whose vision for making films and videos after September 11 and the rise of social media led her to launch the International Mobile Film Festival in 2009 as a pioneer in the industry.

Our MobilizeStories program is perfect to bring the discussion and participation to your community, organization or company!

If you are a company looking for a solution to video production without the high cost of services and training, we can fulfill your need. Contact us with your information to schedule a conversation. 


Ask us about our inspiring program for youth storytelling through video and film using smartphones. Give students the skills they need to learn the art of communication, collaboration, storytelling, troubleshooting and more! Their engagement and enthusiasm comes from using their smartphones to create media their peers will consume as opposed to only consuming media as a target audience by corporations.

Watch the students in action!

“It was great. I think you’re enthusiastic, you’re very knowledgable, you get along great with the kids, you’re very patient and you have a lot of great information—and I think the kids really enjoyed it. They seemed like they were very focused and engaged through the whole process—all four days. And they were five-hour days, so that’s saying a lot.” Jeff Brandmeyer Instructor, Carlsbad High School Film Academy

Promoting Art, Technology & Education
S. Botello Productions™ is forming a mobile film resource center for the world to access. A strong emphasis is on connecting the world of filmmaking to mobile filmmakers around the globe via new technological advances with mobile phone cameras.

SBP is based in San Diego, California where owner and founder of the mobile film resource center resides. On September 4, 2012 we issued a press release announcing the Mobile Film School (non-accredited). Conrad Mess, who lives in Spain is well known globally as a pioneer in the mobile film industry.

The official launch of our school took place in San Diego in February 2013 as a three-day master class. Max Schleser of MINA traveled from New Zealand and presented during the workshop. The photo below features Max Schleser (sitting right) with Jeff Turboff (standing) and Perry Dixon.

“I learned so much in this class it felt like an on the job training with a production company. I learned how to use my phone as an audio recorder separate from just visual recording, how to edit with multiple apps, lighting, adding music and so much more. I couldn’t get this on my own without MFS.” – Perry Dixon about the Mobile Film School in San Diego.

"Hands-on instruction is the most effective for this medium because it attracts people with no knowledge or experience filmmaking, but they are inspired due to the camera available in their smartphones and seeing the capabilities it affords them." Instructor, Susy Botello.

"We empower the storyteller inside you through filmmaking with your smartphone." - S. Botello Productions™
