Turn your Android into a director’s viewfinder with Cadrage

Tony Myers of smartmoviemaking.com has posted a succinct write-up of Cadrage, a new Android-only app that turns your smartphone into a director’s viewfinder (a tool used by directors and cinematographers to line up shots without having to lug heavy camera equipment all over the place).

Cadrage isn’t the first Android app to offer this functionality, but at $10.99, it’s nearly one third the cost of Artemis Director’s Viewfinder (an HHH favorite available for Android and iOS).

If you’re an Android owner, make sure to check out Tony’s post!  If you’d like to be notified when Cadrage hits the iOS platform, you can sign up for updates on the developer’s website.

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!
