Episode 60 of the SBP Podcast Mobile Filmmaking is a discussion about the work involved in post production, the importance of audio, and some of the challenges he experienced during production as he shot the film with his iPhone 6S.
Blake’s film was originally a six minute film that he shortened to five minutes to qualify for the film festival’s short film competition. Blake is an artist. He brings his experience in music and acting to his film and spent a lot of time in post production working with several software applications to elevate the quality of the film in both audio and video. The story came together during post production for Blake in his film, Upend. Blake and his wife, Arly Jover, acted in the film and gave a star performance.
Upend is an emotional sci-fi story with some special effects. Blake shares a lot of details with techniques and in-depth advice on the making of his winning mobile short film. His film also won the 2018 Global Mobile Film Awards™ for Best Visual Effects.
