STILL MOTION PRESENTS SMAPP

Still Motion is gearing up to launch SMAPP.  A new iOS app for filmmakers.

“SMAPP was designed to not only make the filmmaking process easier, but also to help the filmmaker really understand the decisions they are making. Learning this craft can be intimidating and there are so many tools that we often don’t even realize we have, or we don’t fully understand how to best use to tell our story effectively. SMAPP was created to make all of filmmaking more approachable and to empower the filmmaker to tell relevant and meaningful stories, their stories, with more confidence than ever before.” stillmotion

In addition to tips, the Still Motion team will also include highly informative tutorials.  I think it’s fantastic to hear practical, real world advice from people who are out there shooting everyday.  If you’re just diving in to the world of filmmaking, explore Still Motion’s website and give SMAPP a try when it’s released.

FASTER PRODUCTIONS: STRANDED

“Stranded is a melancholic coastal based drama which is equally visually striking with an extremely bold colour scheme – a violent man, his disabled brother, an estranged middle aged mother, her teenage daughter, a troubled man in his late 50s and a flamboyant pensioner sunning herself alone on the beach. All 6 people will find themselves – emotionally or physically – stranded.”

The film was directed by Luther Bhogal-Jones.  The filmmaker also has a blog with extensive behind the scenes information on the entire production process.  It’s a really interesting read.
