Here’s a quick sampling: “Shoot it Short and Funky” features 7 unique video camera apps. “Start a Summer Video Project” contains 9 apps for shooting & post-work. “Apps for Stage Actors” (also applies to film actors) has 10 excellent tools for a script reading, rehearsing, annotating, and blocking.

Welcome to another edition of Other People’s News.

SHOWCASE: “Parametric” Short Shot on iPhone 6 Plus

Here’s an interesting, visual-effects short film that was shot entirely on an iPhone 6 Plus using FiLMiC Pro. Directed by Amila C.

The video I’ve embedded above is actually the 1 minute producer’s cut (which I prefer). The full length version is available here.  And, just for good measure, here’s some behind-the-scenes footage.
