Artemis Director’s Viewfinder has come to the Android!

When I first got my iPhone, I didn’t think of it as a filmmaking tool.  But then I came across an amazing app, and suddenly my perspective changed completely.  I suspect that same revelation is about to hit the thousands of Android owning filmmakers around the world.  Why?  Because Artemis Director’s Viewfinder has come to the Android.

Artemis ($29.99) is an awesome digital replacement for the traditional director’s viewfinder. I’ve been using it on set for well over a year.  Users simply select their camera type, shooting format, and lenses. Then, Artemis uses the Android’s built-in camera to simulate the desired focal length. Users can flip between lenses, save screenshots, and made well informed decisions about camera setups.

Take a look at the video below to watch Artemis in action on an iPhone (it behaves the same way on Android).

Android owners, your smartphone just got brilliant!

Shang-Chi Director Directed From His iPhone

I enjoyed reading this brief ScreenRant story, so I thought I’d share it here. It describes how Destin Daniel Cretton, the director of Marvel’s Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings, was forced to direct an important scene via his iPhone while in the hospital for the birth of his child! Sadly, it doesn’t divulge the details of that unusual workflow, but it’s an excellent reminder that we’re all toting the world’s most versatile piece of filmmaking gear in our pockets and purses!

  1. Will the Artemis remote for iPad work with Artemis for Android? I would assume so, but I didn’t see anything on the Chemical lWedding website…

  2. Actually, I have an answer! I acquired Artemis for my Droid2 and discovered that currently there is no option to do so.

    Thanks for offering to look into it.

  3. Well, as you already discovered, the Android app won’t link with Remote. Just got the official word from the developer. Oh, well.

  4. The developer said it may be possible, but I don’t think they’ve made any steps in that direction. I’ll post more if I learn anything else.
