Mobile Movies Showcase – Week 66 – TheAppWhisperer

Welcome the sixty sixth showcase in our Mobile Movies Column, curated and edited by Vanessa Vox and Giulia Baita.  Every two weeks Vox and Baita will curate the movie uploads to our Flickr group MobileMoviesTheAppWhisperer.  They will view all the videos uploaded and comment on the ones selected.

Within this selection today, both Vox and Baita have curated the movies and vox has written the commentary for this week, this will alternate (foreword by Joanne Carter).

All of the entries were either shot or created on mobile devices. Many congratulations to: Thomas Tempe, Mariette Schrijver, Nanou Ghanem, Ile Mont and Karen Axelrad.

Sorrow by Mariette Schrijver

A surreal mix of moving 3D geometry or avatar effects applied on Mariette’s cover photo made for the music of Guflux. This creates a fascinating multi-dimensional visual reacting with strong beats.


5h43 – Another Day by nanou ghanem

A mood lighting which could go on forever. The clever use of a looping visual is hypnotic and works well with the music.

5h43 - Another Day

Ascending Geometry by Ile Mont

Upward moving lift in a black&white retro look. The rhythm of geometric architecture elements passing by. Only the sound of an old projector.

Ascending Geometry

Kehraus by Thomas Kempe

‘Kehraus’, the last dance. The dance of the broom with the remnants of a new year firework in an interesting close perspective.


Xmas with the Family by Karen Axelrad

Family life, sharing joy and presents on the Christmas day. The time lapse effect intensifies very well the different emotions and moves of this moment.
