“All Up To You!” – iPhone 5 Musical (shot and edited on iPhone 5)

“Everyone (or mostly everyone) now has a camera phone in their pocket. We want to inspire the next generation of filmmakers to get out there and start sharing their stories with the world,” Koerbel said. “This filmmaking era is truly the mobile movie-making revolution. In this day and age of YouTube shows and viral videos, no longer are the studios just in Hollywood.” (Thus the pair’s book, “The Studio In Your Pocket,” an attempt to capitalize on the phenomenon.)

“The Editor”

This suspenseful Russian action-flick received the runner-up award for the category of best film in the second iPhone Film Festival. Again, the iPhone 4 was used here (the iPhone 4S had yet to be released at the time) in addition to a shoulder mount from Red Rock, some car mounts and tripods were used to stabilize shots.
At just over 8 minutes long, the film tells three stories in one. There’s a touch of class with some thoughtful editing techniques and the voice acting is definitely a strong point (at least to a non-Russian speaker). According to director Chris Nong: “I didn’t use any app or lenses. I wanted it to be shot strictly on [a] phone”.


Story : A photographer walks around the woods to take some pictures, when something unexpected happens. Entirely shot on iPhone 4S.

“The Fixer”

The film that beat “The Editor” to top spot in the second IFF, The Fixer is a beautifully shot, superbly edited short created on an iPhone, by a few friends. It owes a lot of its success to the extensive post-production work, but maintains the “shot on an iPhone” look and feel.
It’s really not difficult to see why this won first place – the voice acting, make-up and score match the quality and stylish post-production techniques. There’s not much of a story, but a lot of technical expertise and time went into this one.


An entry into this year’s third iPhone Film Festival, Sharkoon is a quaint and comical tale of mythical sea beasts. The team used two apps to capture their footage – iSupr8 and almost DSLR – as well as a tripod for those still shots.
It’s short, sweet and all an entry into a mobile film festival needs to be. The acting is offbeat, the editing is tight and the music makes a fine accompaniment to the warm and simplistic world that this brief encounter takes place in.

“A Short Journey” (in Central London)

‘The Film Artist’ as he is known on Vimeo is somewhat of a master of shooting silky smooth iPhone video. In the first outing below, titled “A Short Journey 4S” the filmmaker strolls through his home city of London, capturing whatever strikes him with the help of a stabilizer called the Steadicam Smoothee.


GOLDILOCKS is an episodic mobile action series. Shot entirely on iPhone 4 and iPod Touch.

FiLMiC Extreme 50Mbit H.264 footage captured with FiLMiC Pro camera app on the iPhone 4S, edited in Final Cut Pro X. Basically just testing out grading options, sharpness, tonality, noise and flare etc. with the iPhone 4S as a serious filmmaking tool! The FiLMiC Pro app really makes a different.
All footage captured handheld and with the FiLMiC EXTREME quality option, encoding to H.264 at 50Mbit and variable framerate set to 24p. Noise gets all organic looking at such high bitrates.
