Watch and learn as Jack Edwards takes you through the basics of filming on your smartphone and making it look good too!

 “The best camera you have is the one that is always with you”

From the DSLR revolution putting high quality affordable cameras into the hands of consumers to the film ‘Tangerine’ being screen at Cannes (which was shot entirely on an iPhone), now more than ever it’s easy to get involved in the filmmaking industry.

So how can YOU get making films with nothing but your smartphone? Well Jack is about to tell you how to get started making nice images by covering composition and lighting.

Expect to hear about motivated light, the rule of thirds and why these properties improve your shots.

P.S. The most important thing to remember when filming. Please for the love of Kubrick, DON’T SHOOT IN PORTRAIT MODE, landscape, landscape, landscape!
