Today TheAppWhisperer presents its first ever weekly ‘best of’ mobile movies Column curated by Donna Donato.
This is a brand new section and if you missed the original notification of it we can tell you a little more about it. Donna is going to be running our new and unique Mobile Movie Column. We have been inspired by the Flickr upgrade of 1 Terabyte 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 – Donna will let me know her ‘Best of the Week’ selections and they will be added to this new section, every Saturday.
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.’.
All of the entries were either shot or created on mobile devices.
This group is in its infancy and we would ask that you share our site with your family and friends, encouraging them to create and submit their mobile videos. We are seeking all platforms, Windows, Android, iOS… Joanne Carter and I will also be scouring the web in search of mobiles movies to present to our readers.
The featured pieces this week are a selection of mobile video, photo montage and animation. Links to the videos on Flickr can be followed by selecting the names below. TheAppWhisperer and Donna would like to thank Fernando Prats, Giancarlo Beltrame, "Nettie Edwards and ">JQ Gaines for their interesting, creative and sometimes startling submissions. we would like to note that as well as the images, we enjoyed some of the original music very much. Hope you enjoy the selection.
