Mobile Movies Showcase – Week 7 – By Donna Donato

Welcome back to the seventh article in our fabulous new Column, Mobile Movies. We at TheAppWhisperer 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 I (you can find me on Flickr here) will curate the movie uploads to our new Flickr group – MobileMoviesTheAppWhisperer – I will view all the videos uploaded and comment on the chosen ones.

”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.

Here is TheAppWhisperer’s video showcase for August 17, 2013. We would like to thank this week’s contributors:  ozorai_a, SLP, Kachouro_Em Kachouro and Mahogany Turtle_Mel Harrison for their submissions.  Take a look at these latest gems; you’ll be glad you did.  Please share our Column 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.

’A journey in black & white’ – ozorai_a

Using black and white Hipstamatic images and an Erik Satie-esque score ozorai_a has created a lovely, sometimes, melancholy montage.

‘Untitled’ – SLP

SLP has provided a snippet of a windy day at the shore.

‘history of wings’ – SLP

‘history of wings’ is a silent little jewel of multi-exposed black/white images.


‘Fuente’ – Kachouro_Em Kachouro

Kachouro’s piece felt like a meditation on water while being surrounded, sometimes encased, by interwoven strands of disparate sounds.

‘The Egliid’ – Mahogany Turtle_Mel Harrison

This silent stop motion piece made me smile. I found It sweet, bright and hopeful on so many levels.
