Smartphone Filmmaking; Manual Camera Apps Will Save Your Film

We’re back with Smartphone Filmmaking where I, Colton, will teach you how to get creative with your smartphone when filmmaking!

Last time, Micah was talking about how to shoot a movie scene with your iPhone! Soon we’ll get into learning about how to film projects like documentaries, music videos, and commercials, but we should start with an important aspect of smartphone filmmaking, and that’s learning to grasp the full power of your phone!

If you have a phone that was made in the past five years, your guaranteed to be sitting on a high-quality camera, but the standard app to use the camera is going to hinder your smartphone’s ability. A manual camera app like Moment or FilmicPro will allow you to adjust settings like shutter speed, iso, and white balance. Your smartphone’s standard app might be able to do this, but generally, you’ll find it to automatically do this in the middle of a take.

Check out the video as I’ll explain more about how to make movies and other projects with your smartphone!
