Smartphone Filmmaking Panel | Friday, July 21, 2017 at #SDCC2017

Mobile Filmmaking is becoming the next big thing! You have heard of movies which used smartphone cameras to shoot but you may still not be convinced that you can make a movie yourself using a smartphone from your own back pocket! Smartphone cameras now have the capability of shooting 4K - Which makes mobile filmmaking now a possibility to be taken seriously. 

Meet the Founder of The International Mobile Film Festival in San Diego Susan Botello (S. Botello Productions) and San Diego Mobile Filmmaker Anthony De La Cruz to share with you the ins and outs of what you need to get started as a mobile filmmaker. Do you need an app? Can you use microphones? How do you stabilize your videos for a smoother more professional look? Do you need a million dollars? 

We will answer your questions and present some cool filmmaking tools and accessories. Let us inspire you to make movies, documentaries, promos, music videos and just about any films that all can be done using your smartphone as a camera! Learn to edit on the phone (or computer) and share your films with the world. We will also present MFF2014 winning film Captain Justice by David Muñoz and Star Wars Steampunk Universe, IMFF 2017 featured mobile film by Hot Nerd Girl of Star Wars Steampunk Universe

Bring your smartphones and we’ll share the world of mobile filmmaking with you! Be inspired by your superpower for storytelling using your smartphone camera!

International Mobile Film Festival was created by S. Botello Productions™ in 2009 as a global opportunity for any human being on our planet to make movies and get a foot in the door of the filmmaking industry with the mobile device everyone has access to.
