Meet a father and daughter who are making films using their smartphones. Miranda Mullings was 11-years-old last year, and her father, Anthony De La Cruz is an actor. In 2016, he made a film that he submitted into the International Mobile Film Festival in San Diego. So when he decided to make a new film for our film festival last year, his daughter decided that she wanted to make a film using her smartphone as well. Miranda was inspired by the experience her father had in the festival in 2016. However, she was also invited during the Q&A Panel, by the founder of the festival, to make a movie with a mobile phone and submit it to the festival for 2017.
Miranda was shy and quiet and even her teachers were pointing it out to her parents. But we invited Miranda to come with her father and another filmmaker to promote the festival event in the San Diego KUSI news channel to be interviewed. Miranda took part in the festival’s Q&A Panel with her father and answered questions from the moderator and attendees. Making a movie with her smartphone and being exposed to public speaking helped Miranda grow into a more confident person. Now, as a 12-year-old filmmaker, she made a new film for this year’s #MFF2018SanDiego. She looks forward to being in the film festival again and her filmmaking skills are evolving quite fast. She already has a story in mind for her next film.
Listen to Miranda and her father talk about making films using smartphones and you will be inspired no matter what your age is. Their story is one for all families and mobile filmmaking may bring you closer to your parents or your children through storytelling.
You can meet Miranda and Anthony during our film festival this year on April 28 & 29 in San Diego. Also, listen to the bonus episode with them on our Patreon page where they share tips to help parents and kids make films and support each other as filmmakers.
