Making films with your smartphone

Monday, 6 September 2021 - 6:00pm to 6:30pm
Cinespace founder Daniel Schultheis holds up a makeshift smartphone-holder for filming.

Technological disruption of all kinds of industries is the norm rather than the exception now and the film industry is no different. As cameras on smartphones improve, more and more people are embracing the tool as an opportunity to tell their stories, and even traditional filmmakers are joining in.

 

Max Schleser, senior lecturer in film and television at Swinburne University of Technology, and founder of the Mobile Innovation Network and Association, and Daniel Schultheis, founder of the not-for-profit organization Cinespace, which promotes cultural diversity on screen, who has been running workshops about how to make films with your smartphone around Victoria, discuss making films using smartphones.

Monday 6:00pm to 6:30pm
This show casts a critical eye on the myriad ways in which we communicate with each other in our increasingly interconnected, multi-media platform world. Each week we mix down the who, the what, the where, and the how of particular communication events, messages, trends and technologies, and then consider: what impacts and what consequences?
