Mobile Movie Recommended for Turner Prize 2018 by Charlotte Prodger

Share

The Turner Prize is one of the best known prizes for the visual arts in the world and I was delighted to discover Charlotte Prodger’s mobile movie within the shortlist of artists. Prodger was born in Bournemouth, UK in 1974. She studied at Goldsmiths, London and The Glasgow School of Art.  

She has been nominated for the 2018 Turner Prize for her solo exhibition BRIDGIT/Stoneymollan Trail at Bergen Kunsthall (2017) comprising two single-channel videos. Moving image has been at the core of Prodger’s work for two decades. Its ever-evolving formats are inextricably bound to the autobiographical content of her work. She has mined the material properties of numerous moving image formats, not just because they inherently get replaced over time, but because she is fascinated by their formal parameters and socio-political histories; the sticky relationship between form and content. Prodger’s recent videos set up complex tensions between the body, landscape, identity and time.

BRIDGIT is titled after the eponymous Neolithic deity whose name has had multiple iterations across different geographical locations and points in history. BRIDGIT was shot entirely on Prodger’s iPhone, which she approaches as a prosthesis or extension of the nervous system, intimately connected to time, social interaction and work. Body and device become extensions of each other, and the work becomes a unified meditation on shifting subjectivity.

Stoneymollan Trail is named after an ancient ‘coffin road’ on the west coast of Scotland. A non-linear miscellany of visual material from her personal archive (shot between 1999 and 2015), it traces a history of recent video formats as well as the artist’s personal history. Much of Prodger’s work looks at what happens to speech – and the self for which it is a conduit – as it metamorphoses via time, space and technological systems. For voiceovers she frequently asks friends to read out her own diaristic content, while she inhabits other subjectivities by re-speaking the words of people living and dead: friends, anonymous YouTube users and historical figures of influence. The material perpetually shifts around, but is locally grounded in its means of production – based in queerness, communality, technology, language and loss.

Charlotte Prodger is 44 and lives and works in Glasgow.

The Turner Prize 2018 winners will have their work exhibited with an exhibition at Tate Britain from 25 September 2018 – 6 January 2019

Mobile Videography – Cinematic ITALY – Shot on iPhone X in Brescia

Share

Matteo Bertoli is a videographer whom we have often featured and admired, not least with his latest film, filmed during the 2017 Christmas holidays when he went back home to Brescia in Italy.

“I decided to go out and shoot some clips with my iPhone X. Everything was handheld. No slider, no tripod, no lenses. Just my iPhone X and my hands. I used Filmic Pro to record every single clip. The app on the new iPhone X is absolutely perfect. No lags and no problems at all. 100% compatible with iOS 11. I recorded everything in 24p Filmic Extreme quality in 4k.

Everything was edited and graded in DaVinci Resolve 14 on my Macbook Pro 15″.

The music was scored by Martin Pankuweit for this particular video.

Take a look at this beautiful film below…

International Mobile Motion Film Festival Winners

Share

The International Mobile Motion Film Festival is a brand new film festival based in Zurich, Switzerland screening work shot on smartphones, tablets and GoPro cameras.

We have great pleasure in publishing all the Winning films of the 2017 festival below The next festival will take place in May 2018 and submissions for it will be open in October 2017.

As you all know we have a dedicated Mobile Movies column here at TheAppWhisperer.com and within that we have a Flickr Group that allows all of our viewers to participate and submit their movies. To find that, please go here. We have some great videos there, please keep them coming so we can feature them in our forthcoming Showcase!

Giulia Baita expressed “The MoMo Festival, #momofilmfest Mobile Motion Film Festival is an important event for mobile cinema and TheAppWhisperer has followed it since it started. 

This year between May 27-28 the third edition took place in Zurich with great success. Mobile cinema is now a consolidated reality around the world. The ability to shoot a video with a smartphone has revolutionized cinematography and this has made it accessible to the many,  something that was previously just for professional filmmakers. 

In 2015, there were about 1.91 billion smartphones in use around the world. We do not know how many were used to create video content, but probably many. This inspired some enthusiasts filmakers to organize a Festival. The first Mobile Motion Film Festival was in 2015. 

During the past three years, the Festival has grown thanks to the passion and enthusiasm of Andrea Holle and her staff. TheAppWhisperer last year watched the live streaming festival and shared some posts involving dozens of mobile filmmakers within Mobile Movies . 

Mobile cinema has opened up borders to all fans of cinema or short film and today it involves many areas of our lives such as journalism, documentaries, experimental films and stories”.
