Film Editing with Judd Resnick
Is a film editor invisible? Shooting a feature film with smartphones is the new sensation in filmmaking. But it’s only a part of the process. Episode 67 is a discussion with the editor of the viral mobile film, Blue Moon. Judd Resnick discusses his experience editing iPhone footage.When you are looking online for smartphone mobile filmmaking the chatter is mostly about the phone as a camera. It is easy to assume that editing works just as with any camera but the reality for most filmmakers, is that even without smartphone cameras, different cameras can create issues for an editor. A long time ago, editors had to deal with mixed formats with different aspect ratios. Judd speaks about the codec with Apple versus the PC and the software. Judd Resnick shares some of the nuances he experienced, but you would not realize it by watching the film. Editors are a bit invisible and undervalued by the general public.Judd is a professional editor. He moved to New Zealand from San Diego, California and now lives in Christchurch. While he lived in Timaru, he met Ryan O’Rourke who shot Blue Moon, who introduced him to Stef Harris, the writer and director of the film.Blue Moon was shot in Montueka, New Zealand during six nights in thirty hours in and around a gas station. The film has a cinematic look and sound that is inspiring more people to begin their filmmaking career with smartphone cameras. What is cinematic? Judd explains the qualities of cinematic footage during the podcast.The actors, Jed Brophy and Mark Hadlow, made the editing easier for Judd. He explains why he could hold on a shot for a long time without the need to cut to anything without a negative impact to the viewer. The film was pretty much shot with single takes and that helped Judd with the editing process. He shares advice to filmmakers the perspective of the editor. He also gives credit to Jack Bayliss, who did the color correction for Blue Moon.The trailer for Blue Moon is one of the main reasons Blue Moon has gone viral on social media. The film has only been seen, currently, at film festivals. Judd shared how he edited the trailer and the importance of good audio to create the intensity he created in the opening of the trailer.“I think the best directors know the teams to surround themselves with and know when to ask what’s working in this—what isn’t and understand, ‘Okay.’ And that’s why so many films end up on the cutting room floor.”His advice for editors, as a professional, is invaluable. He speaks directly to our listeners about what to consider when editing films regardless of the camera that is used. His advice to filmmakers includes how valuable good audio is to the outcome of a film. The collaboration between people working on a crew is highly important to the ultimate quality of the film and the result of how your films are perceived. Judd also worked as an editor in a film you may have heard of, YellowBrickRoad in 2010, edited by Judd Resnick with Jesse Holland and Andy Mitton. You can watch the trailers for Blue Moon and YellowBrickRoad, below.SBP Podcast: The Voice of Mobile Film™ is for everyone who ever wanted to or is curious about making movies and videos using smartphones.

Experimenting with Smartphone Films with Melissa Brattoni Episode 29
A long time ago in a galaxy far away…actually—on earth, some filmmakers were experimenting with films which have been archived and preserved to ensure we can watch them 70 years later. Experimental films are not what you expect to see when you go to your local theater. They are not the typical Hollywood film. Then again, a lot of mobile films are also experimental in nature. Perhaps it’s because the camera is so accessible, it begs for our attention. When you have ideas for films and a camera in your hand at the same time, it’s easy to experiment with film concepts and ideas, much like our guest for episode 29 of the SBP Podcast, Melissa Brattoni.Download the podcast and listen offline anywhere.Melissa’s latest film was shot with her smartphone, an iPhone 6 and it was an official selection during the International Mobile Film Festival #MFF2018SanDiego. Her film, In My Mind was a short film she wrote, directed and acted in. Last year, a film she submitted was also selected, Meshes of An Autumn Afternoon. That film was also experimental and they both share a bit of an avant-garde look and feel. Last year’s film was shot with a different phone, a Google phone.Melissa shares a bit about how she came to make mobile films and the art of making films with phones as an artistic expression. It is a bit fascinating to find a filmmaker who just started making films developing her own consistent theme or genre. This podcast discussion will immerse you into the not-so-talked-about possibilities of smartphone filmmaking. Perhaps her films will be archived and preserved so people can watch them in the year 2088 or 3000. Or perhaps, when you listen to this conversation, you will want to experiment making films with your phone’s camera as well.

You Made A Movie With Your Smartphone, Now What with Chuck Copeland Episode 27
Chuck Copeland was a participant in #MFF2018SanDiego and enjoyed his first film festival experience with his short iPhone film The Workweek. He has experienced the film industry and even worked for a film festival but he never experienced a film festival as a filmmaker. During the red carpet walk, filmmakers who attended the International Mobile Film Festival in San Diego were escorted by Star Wars Steampunk Universe. Chuck is a fan of cosplay and since he connects San Diego to Comic-Con, he thought having a cosplay group playing a part on the red carpet was very appropriate for our festival. And we think so too, especially since it’s truly an international film festival where filmmakers and others come from other countries and states.Episode 27 of the SBP Podcast is an interesting conversation with someone who is a fan of the film industry and film festivals. Chuck was able to have his first film festival experience using his phone camera. Chuck shares a lot of stories about his past and what his plans are for the future with mobile film. He may be in our next film festival whether he makes a film or not. While he was in San Diego attending our film festival he was submitting films to member film festivals of the Global Mobile Film Awards™ such as Cinephone in Barcelona and SF3 Smartphone Flick Fest in Sidney, and other film festivals.Chuck was also nice enough to allow us to record a bonus podcast for our patrons and you can find it on our Patreon page.

Like most writers, sharing your stories is an important aspect of being a writer. Brian realized he could make films with his Samsung smartphone and submitted his first mobile film to the International Mobile Film Festival in San Diego for #MFF2017SanDiego. His film, Express, was selected and we met Brian as a mobile filmmaker in San Diego. He enjoyed his experience and submitted a new film this year to #MFF2018SanDiego, and he flew out to San Diego again, to be a part of all that goes on in the festival. He reconnected with some and met some new filmmakers. But Brian won the First Place award for best film this year in the festival, so he took home a trophy. His film was also nominated to the Global Mobile Film Awards™ next year for Best Cinematography. The Awards Ceremony is the “Oscars” of mobile film.Now that Brian is back home in Perth, Australia, we wanted to catch up with him to discuss his mobile filmmaking experience as a storyteller.

Become A Cosplay Smartphone Filmmaker with Star Wars Steampunk Universe EP 52
Star Wars Steampunk Universe is a charity support group based in Southern California which takes part in charities and events in southern California. They do crossover events with other charity groups. Two of the founding members of the Star Wars Steampunk Universe are our guests in Episode 52 of the SBP Podcast Mobile Filmmaking. Founders of the group, who are still active participants, are Dude Vader (Chris), Captain Solo Seekerman (Nathan Seekerman), Hot Nerd Girl (Tracy), Kansas City Photography (Kansas Johnson), Lando Chronos / Family Goals Cosplay (James) and DLo Cosplay (Shaylor). They’ve added many more members to their group over the years.Chris emphasized they are not a cosplay group but a charity support group for Southern California and is specific to Star Wars. He mentions the Sci-Fi Coalition as one of the main groups they team up with and how they “do every version of cosplay you can think of.” Chris mentioned he is a part of about 100 events a year and 80 or so, of them, are charity.The group caught the eye of Lucas Film when they teamed up for a panel at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim in 2015. They soon began to form the Star Wars Steampunk Universe and their debut as a group was at the San Diego Comic-Con International in 2016 where they received an award as the Best Costume Group from the Hollywood Costume Designer’s Guild.Chris plays Dude Vader which is a steampunk version of Darth Vader and Tracy “Hot Nerd Girl” plays Sabe Sprocket, a steampunk version of Queen Amidala's bodyguard. The group is able to get creative with their Star Wars character outfits thanks to encouragement from Lucas Film and Disney.We shared an insight story of how we connected with the group to include them in our film festival. Tracy has changed her outfit at least three times and Chris said that when it comes to Dude Vader, “There are over 300 versions right now.”We asked Tracy where the name “Hot Nerd Girl” came from. Tracy shares the story including her blog and social media following on Facebook of around 70 thousand.The story about this group is very interesting and their insights are intriguing. Chris and Tracy share many names from the history of their group and their current story. They were a part of the world premier of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” in Hollywood and they shared an emotional moment during the film screening with their group with Nathan Seekerman who plays Captain Solo Seekerman.One thing we spoke about was how being behind a mask can help them deal with emotional situations during events as a charity. There is a similarity in documentary filmmaking behind the camera. Of course, we spoke about the importance of the red carpet for film festivals including what happens on our red carpet. At around 42 minutes into the podcast, Chris and Tracy speak about how and why cosplayers should make films using their smartphones. We had one of the funnest shout outs to the sponsors for #MFF2019SanDiego: Red Giant, Film Convert, Hall H Show Podcast, Star Wars Steampunk Universe, and Grip & Shoot. We also gave a special shoutout to Swords and Circuitry Studios and Uncharted Regions’ Neal and Jana Hallford.This podcast is a little longer than usual but you’ll want to stay through to the end…if anything, for pure entertainment.SBP Podcast: The Voice of Mobile Film™ is for everyone who ever wanted to or is curious about making movies and videos using smartphones.Watch their video which they made in 2017 for the International Mobile Film Festival: https://youtu.be/uMdOzXTYx54Follow Star Wars Steampunk Universe on Facebook and Instagram:Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/starwarssteampunkuniverse/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/StarWarsSteampunkUniverse/Website for Hot Nerd Girl: http://hotnerdgirl.comDude Vader on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/DudeVaderCanole/Our Links: Subscribe, support and listen to bonus episodes and more on Patreon: http://patreon.com/sbppodcastSBP Podcast Blog: http://sbppodcast.wordpress.comSBP Podcast Website: http://sbppodcast.studioiTunes/Apple Podcasts: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/sbp-podcast/id1296673665International Mobile Film Festival Website: http://internationalmobilefilmfestival.comFacebook: http://facebook.com/sbppodcastTwitter: http://twitter.com/sbppodcastHashtag: MobilizeStories Mobile Film Community Website: http://mobilizestories.comSusy Botello on Twitter: http://twitter.com/susybotelloSBP Podcast on Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/4ISEF0SZOLyRpw20loXzlo#upsellSmartphone Filmmaking Publication on Medium: https://medium.com/smartphonefilmmakingAre you starting a Podcast?

The Camera Details Of Feature Filmmaking With iPhones with Ryan O'Rourke
Episode 62You have heard of it as more and more filmmakers talk about making movies with smartphones. There are countless short films being made every day but there are not enough good features shot with smartphones and that reality is coming to a close soon as more films like, “Blue Moon” are emerging. Director of Photography Ryan O’Rourke is the person behind the iPhone 7 camera who shot, “Blue Moon,” the feature length film in a very short period of time. Our guest for Episode 62 of the SBP Podcast shares a behind-the-scenes look with our listeners. Ryan is in Nelson, New Zealand, which is about 30 miles from where the film was shot.Ryan O’Rourke and I had a great discussion about his part in the filmmaking process. Ryan is from Nelson, New Zealand and he and director, Stef Harris have worked together before. After all, they both worked on the police force together. He shared many of the people involved in the film had a similar background. But hey, let’s stick to the story behind the other story: The feature film shot with iPhone that is going viral around the world. Episode 62 of the SBP Podcast is a wonderfully informational episode from a filmmaker who shot a cinematic Hollywood style film using an iPhone in a single location with a small crew of about 8 people and two reputable actors, Jed Brophy and Mark Hadlow best known for “The Hobbit.” Ryan shares the different settings he used to film with the iPhone from the native camera and the FilmicPro app. He also went on to share some in-depth details about the settings and why they were set. The settings were very helpful to Judd Resnick who edited the footage into a complete cinematic film. Ryan also shares why the anamorphic lens from Moondog Labs was instrumental in giving the footage it’s cinematic aesthetics. We go into many details about the process to make this film work and if you watch the trailer, below, you will realize that the movie’s visual and audio quality is truly cinematic. All the elements of any other film we are used to seeing in many films in theaters or streaming services online…they are there. Are you inspired?“It’s never been easier or more accessible, I suppose, to make a feature than it has now. If you’ve got a good story and you want to tell it then…the technology’s never been more enriched.” Ryan O’Rourke.If you are a filmmaker making short films and want to make a feature film, then this is one way to do it with a much lower budget. And not only is it about the budget…Ryan and I share the opportunities available to feature mobile filmmakers due to a demand in the industry.

Imagine that you have made over one hundred films in your lifetime, because who keeps count over a hundred, and you are now working on your third film shot with your iPhone. Meet Mickey Harrison: 83 years and still making movies!Episode 40 of the SBP Podcast: The Voice of Mobile Film™ introduces you to a filmmaker who has spent over 32 years making films. Her film crews came on set with all the big gear and equipment and cameras you find in a typical film set. She has mentored students from High School to Universities who have become successful participants in the film industry from New York to LA. Imagine that you get to have a lifetime experience working in the industry and attending film festivals and then are told that making movies with smartphones is a thing you can do and so, you do. You just do it. Mickey grew up in New York and her Uncle and Father were actors. Although Mickey was interested, they discouraged her from joining “the family business” and suggested she do something else. So Mickey became a nurse practitioner and volunteered to help in Vietnam, during the war. Yes, she was in the middle of the Vietnam war, but that’s another story for another day.She then came to San Diego and worked at Kaiser Permanente, which is a hospital and insurance company. It was then that she began to look into a career in acting and theater. That’s how she met DJ Sullivan who had a great reputation as an acting coach in San Diego. It was DJ who ultimately advised her to look into working on student films to get more experience. In 1989, shortly before retiring, she volunteered to act in student films and that led her to start her own production company, LuLu Films. Mickey is a writer, a producer, a director, an actor and also had a great reputation as a casting agent. While she worked on films with filmmaking crews, including her own films, in San Diego, I reconnected with her again in late 2015. That’s when she found out about the International Mobile Film Festival, where only films shot with mobile phones qualified. She laughed. But as I explained it to her, she became more and more interested in it by the minute.Her first film competed in IMFF 2017 and was shot with her iPhone. By the second film, Aunt Tillie’s Kitchen, she and her crew Shaun Donelson and Richard Tews, were more experienced. Her comedies are written, directed and produced by her and her company LuLu Films. She also acts as the protagonist in her short films. Comedy is not easy to do and it takes a bit of skill to pull off. However, her films have been successfully funny and they get many laughs.Watch Aunt Tillie’s Kitchen below. You won’t find Mickey on Facebook or Twitter but you can find her on her website. Oh, and you can most likely find her being a charm in our film festivals inspiring everyone. Her motto is “If I can do it, anyone can do it.” And that is truth!SBP Podcast: The Voice of Mobile Film™ is for everyone who ever wanted to or is curious about making movies and videos using smartphones.Mickey’s Website:https://lulufilmsproductions.wordpress.comWatch Aunt Tillie’s Kitchen:https://youtu.be/J6MF1baZCcsOur Links:Subscribe, support and listen to bonus episodes and more on Patreon: http://patreon.com/sbppodcastSBP Podcast Blog: http://sbppodcast.wordpress.comSBP Podcast Website: http://sbppodcast.studioiTunes/Apple Podcasts: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/sbp-podcast/id1296673665International Mobile Film Festival Website: http://internationalmobilefilmfestival.comFacebook: http://facebook.com/sbppodcastTwitter: http://twitter.com/sbppodcastHashtag: MobilizeStories Mobile Film Community Website: http://mobilizestories.comSusy Botello on Twitter: http://twitter.com/susybotelloSBP Podcast on Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/4ISEF0SZOLyRpw20loXzlo#upsell© Copyright 2018 S.

Smartphone Feature Length Filmmaking For The First Time Filmmaker with Ross Perkins Episode 45
Acting, directing, operating a smartphone camera and editing a film to share an incredible well structured story is how Ross Perkins accomplished making a full length feature mobile film. Episode 45 of the SBP Podcast: The Voice of Mobile Film™ takes us to Australia to discuss the experience of making a feature film with an iPhone and a talented cast.We spoke about sound recording and how to integrate a seamless dialogue during camera operation in a moving self-recording scene filled with action and movement. During some scenes some of the actors operate the cameras themselves and it gives the story multiple perspectives. However, the film has one protagonist which actually sneaks up on you in the sense that you discover which character’s perspective the story is being told from. There are many twists and turns in the film which keep the viewer engaged in this dark comedy and thriller.The film emphasizes the point that you need good actors, to portray good characters to make a great story blow you away in any film regardless of what camera you use, or even aesthetic production values. According to Ross, “The film is dialogue heavy.” which also lends to the point of why good actors are instrumental to the value of your film and story. There is a great ensemble of actors to appreciate in the film. We discuss how acting in theatre enriched his career and prepped him for acting in film and filmmaking. And we also talk about the intrusion of a camera in both acting and filmmaking versus the smartphone camera.There is a unique element to the film as it incorporates the current use of smartphones, including apps, GPS, social media and messaging into the story. The creative use of how Ross used the advantage of this brings an intriguing and captivating value to his film. The film is over 120 minutes long and following it as a viewer is incredibly natural and effortless. It brings the viewer to the edge of their seats, it brings laughter and a bit of lip-biting suspense and terror, too. This filmmaker made the best use of a smartphone as the camera but also included the phone into the story as one of the characters. Although there has not been an award given to a smartphone for exceptional acting, if there was, this film would definitely be considered. Mad House is about a home invasion and it is based on a real event that took place, which Ross explains why he felt a need to tone down a bit for his film. Our conversation brought us to discuss a bit about the original Blair Witch Project film and then we spoke a bit about self marketing for filmmakers. We hope you can make it to the film festival in San Diego to meet Ross Perkins, watch the film and participate during the Q&A.

Jed Brophy in Smartphone Feature Blue Moon Episode 55
The way you approach a film as a director, screenwriter or actor, can be quite similar. It revolves and evolves around story, structure, and characters. Episode 55 of the SBP Podcast is a discussion with actor Jed Brophy. Jed has years of experience acting in many films you have probably heard of, Lord Of The Rings, The Hobbit, King Kong, District 9…just to name a few. Jed is one of the principal actors of Blue Moon shot in New Zealand.We spoke with Jed Brophy, who is in New Zealand – Aotearoa. He shares a bit of his career and experience as an actor in the feature film Blue Moon, shot entirely with the iPhone. Blue Moon was written and directed by Stef Harris.Jed is an actor who has worked in many films. He’s also had the privilege to work in a number of Hollywood films. The stories he shares about his experience in both, traditional film and mobile film will inspire anyone thinking, or wondering about whether to dive into the world of making films using smartphones. You don’t have to make a feature film, but you need to start doing it at any capacity to realize the potential of what you can achieve as a filmmaker and storyteller using a smartphone camera. Jed Brophy shares how the longest take in Blue Moon took about 11 minutes, due to the extensive dialogue in each scene. They broke the 85 minute feature screenplay into several parts for their performance during production. Blue Moon was filmed in a total of about 30 hours in a single location. Jed shared the differences between working on a film like Lord Of The Rings and Blue Moon from a personal perspective. The budget and cost for Blue Moon was about $12,000.Jed explains how one of the differences between large action films and a mobile film, has to do with the number of stops and takes for each scene during production. When you have a big crew, much equipment and action scenes, such as in Peter Jackson’s films that Jed has worked on, there are many things that can go wrong. For a shadow that does not belong in a shot, to many technical malfunctions. All the stops extend the time of production and you end up with a few minutes of usable footage in a typical day. Wherein a mobile film like Blue Moon, you end your day with about 30 minutes of usable footage. Jed shares specific differences in crew size and equipment, which can also lower the production time in a mobile film set’s production.Jed has played creatures in some films. He’s had to endure hours of makeup and prosthetics prep. He shares the experience of that experience.

The Acting Performance Of A Feature Smartphone Film with Mark Hadlow
Episode 59The smartphone camera is the window to your story. As your story unfolds on your screen you are watching your film as you record it. Acting in front of the iPhone camera was a lot like acting in theater on a stage. Blue Moon was shot in one location with a small crew. Mark Hadlow is the lead actor in the film, Horace Jones playing alongside Jed Brophy (Darren Cates) as co-lead. The 85-minute feature film is an incredible performance and a great story that begins in a gas station lit up like a spaceship in the dark night. Episode 59 of the SBP Podcast brings a deep conversation with actor Mark Hadlow.In this episode we speak about the making of Blue Moon and Mark shares some behind-the-scenes stories, including his real-life daughter Olivia Hadlow who plays Lucille Jones as Horace Jones’ daughter. Mark also shares a story about when he and Jed worked in The Hobbit, cast as Dwarf brothers Dori and Nori. One important part of the message from Mark is how you need to surround yourself with the right people and build a family that supports you.If you are thinking about making feature films with your smartphone you need to realize it’s not an easy task as a filmmaker. You need to take the focus of your story out of the technology and captivate your viewer closely by the performance. While the technology inspires anyone who has a smartphone to believe anyone can make a movie with a smartphone, it requires some skill in storytelling. But the story is king. And to deliver a good story, the performance has to stand out. Mark shares and emphasizes the work that actors need to put into their careers in order to deliver a good performance. “You can have the best camera and the best person that believes that they can actually film it because they’re really good at what they do. And they can see the magic of their camera angle and they can see what’s going on to film it. You could have the worst sound recording equipment but yet the person who’s doing the sound recording knows exactly—they’ve got the confidence to put it in the right place at the right time. You’ve still a good sound track, you’ve still got a good picture that you filmed.” Mark Hadlow.Mark Hadlow has been an actor for many years. His work is spread between Hollywood films and television to theatrical performances. It is no wonder after listening to the lead actor in Blue Moon why the film is doing so well. Not only does the film look and sound amazing, but the story absorbs its audience into a story through to the very end. That is the magic of making feature films with smartphones. You can make features with amazing landscape with cameras that cost almost as much as a house. You can carry your audience through mesmerizing footage in that sense and you can still deliver a good story. But with a smartphone camera, we are still limited by the size and capabilities of the lens. Take away all that footage and you may be left with a short film.Instead, focus on a great story and a great performance. Having confidence in your actors to develop their characters on screen and bring your audience inside the story to experience it as if they were there, in the middle of it…that is one of the virtues of smartphone filmmaking. “Mark Hadlow, ONZM, is one of New Zealand's best known actors. He has performed in countless theatre shows throughout New Zealand. Mark has made dozens of film appearances, several television series, commercials and radio voice-overs in the thousands. He has directed many plays throughout New Zealand, some independent productions and for the Court Theatre in Christchurch. Playing the dwarf Dori in The Hobbit Trilogy, was Mark's third Peter Jackson movie. Mark has been nominated for and won several awards,” Mark Hadlow “loves the one man show format and ‘MAMIL’ written by his best mate Gregory Cooper opened in 2014 and has since numbered 179 performances to over 40,000 people throughout NZ with a highly successful 2nd season in 2018 in Christchurch at the Isaac Theatre Royal.”"Blue Moon" by Stef Harris of Dark Horse Films is a thriller. It was filmed in Motueka, New Zealand and held its world premiere in the NZIFF in 2018 in New Zealand. It is currently in film festivals and won the Gold Remi Award at the WorldFest Houston film festival 2019.

Smartphone Turns Book Into A Feature Film with Steve Peterson Episode 47
There are books you read with stories you can visualize like a movie. I call it, “Booksualizing.” But there are books which are not told as a story. Those books can be quite interesting and there may be a story within them which you can visualize as a movie. Writing a screenplay is not the same as writing a book or a story. But our minds can take many concepts and visualize them in a way that they can then turn into a story. However, writing a story from a complex book into a screenplay and then making a movie requires some skill. And then, well, then there is taking that screenplay and shooting it using a smartphone camera. Our hero in this podcast is our guest, Steven Palmer Peterson aka Steve Peterson. He turned a very complex book into a story and then made a movie from it. The film is called, Consensus Reality and it is a feature length film which is one of the film that will be screening at the International Mobile Film Festival in San Diego as part of the Mobile Feature Film competition this April. Episode 47 of the SBP Podcast: The Voice Of Mobile Film™ is a discussion that brings our listeners many details about the complexities of shooting a feature length film with a complex story in a short period of time.The film has a lot of dialogue and revolves around a character who has schizophrenia. It is based on a book written by an attorney who needed to prove to a judge that although he had this condition, he was not a danger to society or to himself. His book was like a journal with complex details that sometimes were out of this world. And so, Steve turned the book into a story and then a film which is, out of this world. The quality of his film is outstanding. The film was shot in New York City which gives the film rich visuals with it’s different location designs. The film’s key cast is comprised of Mason played by Garrett Richmond, Eris played by Christina Toth and The Yansha played by Gopal Divan. When you see the film in the festival, you will find that it has a unique aesthetic quality much like other cinematic films but you will also appreciate the quality of the story itself and its characters. Immediately, from the onset of the very first scene, you are captivated by the protagonist, Mason and his world. A world which his uniquely his but it is beautifully created by the director, Steve Peterson.We hope you get a chance to meet Steve during #MFF2019SanDiego which takes place April 27 & 28 in San Diego.Watch the trailer for the film, Consensus Reality:https://vimeo.com/250721778One of the films Steve mentioned during our game which he forgot the title was Coherence:https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2866360/?ref=nvsr_1Consensus Reality on Facebook:https://www.facebook.com/consensusrealitythemovieSteve Peterson on Facebook:https://www.facebook.com/steve.petersonSteve Peterson on IMDb:https://www.imdb.com/name/nm2967774/?fbclid=IwAR0LcZCX3wNAri4O4iEwfg0E9kc-wJHYJ_wG4W4fLJ9JjBMP5JjowUAFwy8Actor Garrett Richmond:https://www.imdb.com/name/nm5712257/?ref=ttrv_t0Actor Christina Toth:https://www.imdb.com/name/nm5463194/?ref=ttrv_t1Actor Gopal Divan:https://www.imdb.com/name/nm3205586/?ref=ttrv_t2Our Links:Subscribe, support and listen to bonus episodes and more on Patreon: http://patreon.com/sbppodcastSBP Podcast Blog: http://sbppodcast.wordpress.comSBP Podcast Website: http://sbppodcast.studioiTunes/Apple Podcasts: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/sbp-podcast/id1296673665International Mobile Film Festival Website: http://internationalmobilefilmfestival.comFacebook: http://facebook.com/sbppodcastTwitter: http://twitter.com/sbppodcastHashtag: MobilizeStories Mobile Film Community Website: http://mobilizestories.comSusy Botello on Twitter: http://twitter.com/susybotelloSBP Podcast on Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/4ISEF0SZOLyRpw20loXzlo#upsellSmartphone Filmmaking Publication on Medium: https://medium.com/smartphonefilmmakingAre you starting a Podcast?
