A hand in a white glove pulling back a blue stage curtain with a bright light in the background, heralding a revolution.

Welcome to the revolu–hang on. I have a call.

Did it happen while you were sitting on a film set? Perhaps it was in the editing bay? Or maybe when you were finally sick of playing iFart Mobile. You had a sudden realization that the foul-sounding-distraction in your hand might possibly serve a greater purpose.   It can help you make your movie!

For me, that moment came when I purchased a storyboarding app named Hitchcock. I won’t go into details about the app (you’ll get plenty of that in future postings), but I will say that it forced me to see my iPhone in a different way. At the risk of tearing up the highfalutin highway, I’ll simply say that the iPhone has launched a revolution in filmmaking.  Oh, and it’s a phone, too.

And so launch-ith Hand Held Hollywood.

HHH will explore how Apple’s ubiquitous iPhone (and iPod Touch) can aid in nearly every aspect of film and video production.  We hope you’ll jump in, and add your voice to the discussion.

Welcome to the filmmaking revolution.  Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got my mom on hold.

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!
