Hi guys, welcome to another blog from the no 1 video company Durban. Today lets talk about making movies on your phone.
“Can I make a movie on my phone?” The answer is Yes. But remember the most important thing when making a movie is the story. You can have the best movie equipment in the world but it wont matter if your story is flat.
I have seen movies shot on very expensive video gear but the acting was so poor I could not carry on watching. So please bear that in mind.
Lets say you have a good story. Now you want to film using your phone. You would have to really know how to use your phone well to use it for filming. There will be no way you can record good sound. Cell phones can record sharp HD or 4 K images but sound recording is very poor. Recording sound would have to be done separately.
No I would also say other equipment will be needed for the phone. Keeping the phone steady will be important. A small tripod can be used or a gimbal.
The visual look the camera gives you will be very different to film. Zero depth of field. Images will appear flat but technology is improving so this will definitely change in the near future
Lenses are not interchangeable. This limits the filmmaker to very narrow selection of shots. I suppose there will be extras you can buy for phones to change this but they will be very limiting and gimicky which wont give your production a professional look
Phone footage wont allow for any grading in the edit, colours will look washed out with very little dynamic range.
