We’re really delighted to welcome Donna Donato as a new Columnist to theappwhisperer.com. We previously interviewed Donna in both our A Day In the Life and Extension of the I series of interviews. Donna is an image-maker, historian by training and a film/video editor by vocation. From a very early age she was smitten with images of all kinds. Donna absolutely loves film and filmmaking. Currently she lives in Paris, a city that has had a long and passionate love affair with ‘the movies’ and is one of the crossroads for world cinema.
Donna is going to be running our new and unique Mobile Movie Column. We have been inspired by the Flickr upgrade of 1 Terrabyte of storage for everyone and have been wanting to launch a mobile movie section for some time. Now seems to be perfect, the new Flickr upgrade will allow for a full 3 minutes of 1080p HD quality video per single film and you can have as many as you have storage space for. Each week Donna (you can find her on Flickr here) will curate the movie uploads to our new Flickr group – MobileMoviesTheAppWhisperer – and I will add them into a similar format that I use for the stills Flickr Group Showcase. You will be able to watch a selection of short movies and be inspired.
In Donna’s words – ”The internet has created other crossroads for films and videos. Mobile devices have democratized not only photography but also video-making. The availability of apps that give digital video the appearance of analogy film, such as grainy black and white super-8, is exciting and important. Now anyone with the desire can make a home movie or ‘film’ and upload it to the web. It is interesting to see what stories and messages people are creating and disseminating.’.
We recently welcomed Richard Gray, Misho Baranovic, Dan Marcolina, Keith Tharp, David Hayes, Teri Lou Dantzler, Richard Koci Hernandez, Rudy Vogel, Kevin Kuster, Laura Peischl, Dilshad Corleone, Mel Harrison, Star Rush, Catherine Restivo, JQ Gaines, Cindy Patrick, Roger Guetta, Janine Graf, Sarah Jarrett, Jennifer Bracewell, Benamon Tame and Shirley Drevich and Maddy McCoy as Columnists to theappwhisperer and we will have a few more announcements to make very soon.
We are growing at a phenomenal rate and trying to include as much unique content and variety from the mobile photography and movie world as our readers can possibly digest, you really don’t need to go anywhere else!
Please join us in welcoming Donna Donato to theappwhisperer family, welcome Donna…
