What does a film that was #MadeOnAMobile look like?

So, if you make a film on a mobile phone or a tablet, what does it look like? Is it obvious? Is it low quality? Does it look un-professional? I’m going to let you judge for yourself… Here’s are a few I made in June at #CollegeExpo19 for the College Development Network.   How’s itContinue reading “What does a film that was #MadeOnAMobile look like?”

Timelapse and Blendeo

If you’ve seen any of my work you’ll know that I’m a huge fan of Timelapse. For example: It’s a shot-for-shot remake of the Netflix “House of Cards” intro captured using iMotion (for iOS in the App Store) on an iPad and an iPhone 4. I made “City of Design” over 3 years ago nowContinue reading “Timelapse and Blendeo”

#MadeOnAMobile in Newcastle

Following a series of extremely well received workshops across Scotland I’m heading south to Newcastle with my mobile digital film making workshop… in November 2018. And I can’t wait. I was there earlier in the year to help out on another workshop and fell in love with the place. It’s so photogenic and full ofContinue reading “#MadeOnAMobile in Newcastle”

New #Filmmaking Freebies!!

I just added a new Film Making page under the ‘freebies’ tab above. They are typical of the kinds of resources that I produce for all of my classes and workshops. Mobile Journalism (#MoJo) is at the forefront of democratised media and content production. And with video consumption going through the roof and consumer mobile devicesContinue reading “New #Filmmaking Freebies!!”

Note to self…

Guest post today! It’s me… but me two years ago..! Do you or your kids play video/computer games? I wrote this during my Masters year (on ‘Mysteryboxes’, my Masters blog) when I was looking into video games and what we can learn from them about learning and engagement. At the same time I was aContinue reading “Note to self…”

Guildtown Project (via AudioBoo)

Guildtown was founded in 1818 by the Guildry Incorporation of Perth. The Primary School, through a series of interlinked projects (many of them delivered through the Living Communities Programme at Perth Museum and Art Gallery), explored the Guildsmen and the trades that they governed. They also made a mini-documentary including a recreation of how theContinue reading “Guildtown Project (via AudioBoo)”

Perth Roman Project

As part of Perth Museum’s Living Communities programme young people from Perth and Kinross took part in a Romans’ project last summer. Here they talk about the experience, what they learned and why it’s great to ‘show’ as well as ‘tell’! These AudioBoos’ were captured to be tagged (via QR Code) to exhibited on displayContinue reading “Perth Roman Project”

iPad – therefore iLearn

Over the past 18 months I have had many opportunities to use the iPad as a learning tool and information on Playful Communications: learning and training services can be found here. As a combination of camera, audio recorder, note-pad and presentation tool I initially thought it would be useful to me but more and moreContinue reading “iPad – therefore iLearn”
