YOUR SMARTPHONE

YOUR STORY

In 2019, Cinespace and Multicultural Arts Victoria ran our first
introductory smartphone filmmaking workshops with the support of local Councils in Wyndham, Brimbank, Maribyrnong & City of Port Phillip.
Funded community workshops are open to anyone, free and welcome people from diverse cultural backgrounds.
 
Cinespace can also run these workshops in community organisations, groups and schools.

WHAT IS A SMARTPHONE STORY?

A smartphone story is a short film made entirely on a mobile phone.

 

It might be a comedy, a drama, a documentary, or something else. 

 It has a beginning, a middle, and an end.

It can be made by one person, or by a team of people.

 

A smartphone story can be made by anyone.

We'd love to see stories set in places audiences haven't seen before,
and that talk about new and different things.

WHAT IS THE WORKSHOP?

You will learn skills in:

  • producing

  • directing

  • writing

  • camera

  • lighting

  • sound

  • editing

  • ways to tell stories using a smartphone

Cinespace will give you skills and equipment to get started.

You can complete your film in your own time,

with ongoing support.​

Depending on specific funding arrangements for a workshop,

participants in workshops may also receive access to

additional support such as (conditions apply, subject to

availability):

  • license to the Filmic Pro app for your smartphone
