Suggested Requirements

  • This is for anyone interested in our do-it-yourself style of indie filmmaking using a smartphone (or whatever camera you have) to create narrative fiction projects. So whether you're a beginner just getting started or are experienced and looking to try something different or new.

  • A general knowledge of filmmaking terms and concepts is ideal, but not mandatory. We mention various gear, software and techniques that might sound unfamiliar otherwise. But, if you're a novice don't worry as you can learn along the way (that's the idea, right?). :)
