A series of one day workshops that looked at mobile phones as tools in film making. Mobile phones are esential tools in modern journalism and activism. The workshop participants where a mix of students and Asylum seekers; together we explored the potential of smart phones as valid tools in film making. First we looked at apps that attachmeta meta-data to our videos and photos as well as sensoring techniques and open source smartphone apps. The workshop ended with a custom rig building exercise where participants made contraptions that allowed for filming techniques not possible with traditional cameras.
