Today is International Women’s Day and our guest, Antoinette Van Sluytman, shares her mission to empower women in the creative industry. We discuss the power that smartphone cameras give everyone to share their own stories through film. I met Antoinette in San Diego’s Black Com!x Day 2022 in February. Antoinette was part of a panel called, “Black Women in Comics and Publishing” and she discussed the challenges or being a woman of color in the industry. 
 Antoinette and her sister Rose are the owners of Broken Chalice Studios in San Diego. Antoinette is an artist, writer and graphic designer. Their multimedia company plans to expand into the film industry.  In this episode, Antoinette and I discuss the power of storytelling to give a voice for black and brown women to bring representation to the multimedia industry, particularly through their company. We share the accessibility of mobile filmmaking and how that can help realize their mission. What we discuss: The lack of women representation in the creative industry Why it’s important that women tell their own stories How narratives become immortal The accessibility of smartphone cameras  ...and much more.

We met Julian Bate-Vergette in episode 115. Julian’s experience and studies make him a great resource to get motivated about audio quality for your mobile films. Audio quality can make or break your film. Mobile filmmakers who are not experienced filmmakers do not always have the resources to make their films sound amazing. But that doesn’t mean your audio needs to be so poor it distracts from the overall quality of your film. Listen to episode 120 as we have a serious discussion about audio.  I am going to pick Julian’s brain so you don’t have to, and you won’t need a lot of audio tech knowledge to understand it all. What we discuss: Mic check basics Room Tone: why and when it’s important When you need external audio capture Shotgun mic or wireless clip on Cheat extra audio track layers with iPhones Audio Film Formats for video Much More...

We have a great discussion with the leading voice for smartphone movie making in Russia, Maxim Mussel. He’s made three feature films with smartphones and launched the only festival for mobile films in Russia.  Incredibly, Maxim was inspired when he made a short film which won an award at the International Mobile Film Festival in San Diego, California in 2014. He was so impressed with the festival in San Diego that he went all in on smartphone filmmaking. He launched the Filmmaker’s International Festival about four years ago. He’s written a book and has been teaching mobile filmmaking.  What we discuss: * How the pandemic affected both our festivals * Storytelling in film * Developing your story before shooting * Teaching filmmaking for mobile * The need for good experienced actors in mobile filmmaking * Submissions deadlines for their festival * Special effects in mobile films, does it work? * The many instructors for mobile filmmaking today * Selling your mobile film Read the article for this episode 116 on our Smartphone Filmmaking Publication: https://medium.com/smartphonefilmmaking  Check the festival on FilmFreeway for submission deadlines and their event dates: https://filmfreeway.com/MobileFilmmakerFest  You can get “Mobile Filmmaking: 100 steps to making a movie with your smartphone” on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Mobile-Filmmaking-steps-making-smartphone-ebook/dp/B07T19W375 Festival website: https://www.mobilefilmmaker.org  Follow Maxim Mussel on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/maxim.mussel  SBP Podcast Mobile Filmmaking: The Voice of Mobile Film™ is for everyone who ever wanted to or is curious about making movies and videos using smartphones.  Our Links:  SBP Podcast Website: http://sbppodcast.studio   International Mobile Film Festival Website: http://internationalmobilefilmfestival.com     Subscribe, support and listen to bonus episodes and more on Patreon: http://patreon.com/sbppodcast      Susy Botello on Twitter: http://twitter.com/susybotello     Twitter: http://twitter.com/sbppodcast    Facebook: http://facebook.com/sbppodcast      Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/mobilefilmsd/      Smartphone Filmmaking Publication on Medium: https://medium.com/smartphonefilmmaking Mobile Filmmaker Shop Online Store: http://mobilefilmmakershop.com     Support podcast host Susy Botello: https://www.buymeacoffee.com/susybotello      SBP Podcast on IMDb: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt14682500/reference      Video and Film Streaming Distribution for Smartphone Films: http://mobilefilmstories.com    Mobile Film Stories on Clubhouse: https://www.joinclubhouse.com/club/mobile-film-stories     iTunes/Apple Podcasts: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/sbp-podcast/id1296673665    YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/mobilfilmfestival?sub_confirmation=1 © Copyright 2022 S.

What is NFT? It’s a Non Fungible Token and it authenticates your digital media as yours. This is one of the most attractive features. The other attraction to this is that you can build in a royalty to your art and media. If it gets sold, built into the code is that royalty so that you are paid as the original creator. Filmmakers are accustomed to royalties but most original creators are now able to gain the benefits of affirming ownership and receiving royalties for your work online. There are ways you can save an NFT, of course, just as any art or photograph online. However, collectors or buyers now have a way to verify they own a genuine work of art.  Read the article for this episode 114 on our Smartphone Filmmaking Publication: https://medium.com/smartphonefilmmaking  SBP Podcast Mobile Filmmaking: The Voice of Mobile Film™ is for everyone who ever wanted to or is curious about making movies and videos using smartphones.  Watch Mr. Sadheart’s Small Day: https://youtu.be/RNeoAeRUXxU  You can follow Robert David Duncan online and check out his other links: IMDb: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm5399017/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/duncanrob  Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/robertdavidduncan/  Udemy: https://www.udemy.com/course/acting-skills-for-a-better-life/  LinkTree: https://linktr.ee/robertdavidduncan  Our Links:  SBP Podcast Website: http://sbppodcast.studio   International Mobile Film Festival Website: http://internationalmobilefilmfestival.com     Subscribe, support and listen to bonus episodes and more on Patreon: http://patreon.com/sbppodcast  Buy Me A Coffee Support: https://www.buymeacoffee.com/susybotello   Susy Botello on Twitter: http://twitter.com/susybotello    Twitter: http://twitter.com/sbppodcast    Facebook: http://facebook.com/sbppodcast      Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/mobilefilmsd/      Smartphone Filmmaking Publication on Medium: https://medium.com/smartphonefilmmaking     Support podcast host Susy Botello: https://www.buymeacoffee.com/susybotello      SBP Podcast on IMDb: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt14682500/reference      Video and Film Streaming Distribution for Smartphone Films: http://mobilefilmstories.com    Mobile Film Stories on Clubhouse: https://www.joinclubhouse.com/club/mobile-film-stories     iTunes/Apple Podcasts: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/sbp-podcast/id1296673665    YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/mobilfilmfestival?sub_confirmation=1 © Copyright 2021 S.

Making movies can feel intimidating. One way to reduce that overwhelming feeling is by understanding there is a process which will guide you into believing in your idea. Coming up with an idea for your movie will lead you into creating the concept. You may need to go back to your idea as you develop your concept. But here’s the magic though. It’s while you are developing your concept that you may realize it’s not such a great idea! And isn’t it great to find out before you start writing a screenplay? Episode 113 of the “In The Weeds” series with Jason C. Marshall is a great conversation that brings us back to the origin of film and story development. So don’t start writing your screenplay before you have your concept. Go back and get a new idea if you need to. If you write a screenplay and get lost in in the process and find yourself not finishing what you started, it doesn’t mean you failed. It could be that you didn’t first develop your concept. Jason and I discuss the difference between idea and concept and why conceptualizing your idea is so important to succeed. This series can help you make some incredible and memorable films!  Read the article for this episode 113 - Where to Start with Story in Film by Jason C.

The arch, the beats, the plot and the structure in your story make films compelling. Jason C. Marshall shares the elements in storytelling that will help you make great movies. Now that you’ve discovered your smartphone camera can make cinematic films, your story is what will make your movie memorable.  Read the article for this episode 107: https://medium.com/smartphonefilmmaking Breaking down some of the most memorable films give filmmakers the ability to recreate new award-winning films that can make an impact. Diving into storytelling can get complicated and there are many resources that will keep you busy learning. So we invited Jason to our podcast to share what he’s learned to simplify the process. Jason and I go “into the weeds” of storytelling for film. In order to emphasize the importance some of the elements to consider as you create and design your story for your movie, Jason shares a lot of what he’s learned with our listeners. We discussed a bit about his journey through researching the topic and his personal interest in filmmaking.  Jason shares a couple of books which influenced his education on the subject: Hollywood Said No!: Orphaned Film Scripts, Bastard Scenes, and Abandoned Darlings from the Creators of Mr. Show (2013) and Saved The Cat: The Language of Storytelling™ by Blake Snyder (2005).  Jason has processed what he’s learned and has developed his own perspectives based on formulas and traditional storytelling. These processes are currently used in many of the most successful films made today. He has watched many films which he analyzes and breaks down to discover the formulas used in each one in order to learn what works and what doesn’t work.  In episode 107 of the SBP Podcast Mobile Filmmaking, Jason and I discuss what we both know about story in film. Jason brings the breakdown of elements in storytelling to our listeners. The purpose behind how you shape your story is the reason your film works, makes an impact and is what your audience or viewers consider a memorable movie. If your goal is to make better films, and why would that not be, listening to this episode will give you a lot of information to consider as you plan your next film.  Jason’s reviewing skills have captured the interest of the premier fan site for HBO’s The Nevers, which is story focused. They brought Jason into their website’s blog as an author for the the series.  Jason is submitting his short mobile film Ride Share, into the 11th edition of the International Mobile Film Festival in San Diego scheduled for April 29 through May 1, 2022. Jason is working on many projects, but one of them is a video series titled Post Credits, shot with smartphones. The first episode is a Proof of Concept which premiers today, August 31, 2021. Episodes of Post Credits are shot with a smartphone. Jason and Julian Bate-Vergette watch a movie and then immediately review it in the car.

Darcy Yuille wanted to make a feature and using an iPhone. Because of his professional experience in the industry he discovered it was important to get the story right. To give you an example of his professional experience, Darcy has worked on films like Pitch Black with Vin Diesel. Darcy is in Australia. He learned making films is not just something you jump into without disregard for the process and that includes research for the story and character development.  The story in One Punch is about growing up with the pressure of the family business. But it has a central plot with something that happens a lot between teen males that has a very tough consequence that includes brain damage. One thing he advises is to do the research because it adds quality to your film and story. Read the article for this pisode 106: https://medium.com/smartphonefilmmaking Because Darcy had a good feel for the story he wanted to tell, Darcy used a method called, character-based improvisation that helped him to create characters around real people.  Because the story focuses on youth, it brings the filmmakers to a night out on the town, in Australia from the streets to inside a night club. The camera captured lots of moments on the streets that played well with the iPhone and adds to the cinematography in the film. The film begins by establishing the location, the protagonist and more of the important elements of the story for the viewer. It was something Darcy speaks about in detail. Going from location to location, Darcy decided to not block the scenes until they arrived to the locations on the day of the shoot. There was one scene which he devoted an entire day to shooting it and he shares in the podcast why that worked so well.  Darcy used the lens by Moondog Labs which he mentions it gave his film a beautiful look and feel. The lighting inside the night club scene was created quite creatively. If you are having issues trying to figure out how to accomplish lighting tricks, you’ll appreciate this part of our discussion. When it comes to lighting, there is a lot of cheating in filmmaking but there is a delicate balance in knowing when you can cheat, and when cheating is a good idea and when to take the time to set up the shot. You get that from experience.  Darcy’s crew was made up of a makeup artist, a gaffer and a sound recordist who recorded sound externally, and he was the cinematographer. Most of the dialogue in the film was captured on set but about 15% was ADR (automated dialogue replacement). Darcy talked about how helpful it was to use lighting, of course, but he says there are still issues with contrast and exposure. He used Filmic Pro and used the log mode which helped him a lot in grading the film in post. He mentions that shooting at 24fps as opposed to 25fps “gives it a little softer edge.” Over all Darcy brings a lot of great tips for filmmakers in this episode of our podcast. However, one thing that he sums up is to be authentic with your story. The story idea came from an incident he experienced a couple years ago in which he thought, “what if?” It’s something we all do but with the camera in your possession, you have the ability to turn your thoughts into stories that you can film. He also mentioned part of his inspiration came with watching Blue Moon by Stef Harris starring Jed Brophy and Mark Hadlow as the protagonists. One of the things he points out in storytelling with film was an element in which you are watching a film and you think the story is about one thing and then it turns into something else. It was something he accredited Sean Baker’s Tangerine and Stef Harris’ Blue Moon. Film Synopsis: ONE PUNCH is a gritty, teen drama about Matt Mercado, a young Italian Australian man on the cusp of adulthood, struggling in his final year at high school and trying to hold on to the friendships and innocence of his youth. Key Cast: Alex Arco, Mirko Grillini, Jessica Osrin, Sergej Arcaba, Jacob Ehlefeldt, Stavros Psoras, Amanda Grillini.
