Emerging filmmakers have heard the following advice over and over again. “There’s no excuse not to start filming. You can make a movie on your iPhone.” Well, shooting a film on your iPhone is more complicated than it sounds, especially when you have such a short deadline.

In this episode, No Film School’s GG Hawkins speaks with director Meghan Ross and editor Lauren Paige Sanders to discuss:

  • Working with Adobe to create a short film, on an iPhone, in only 30 days
  • Realizing they would have to be really flexible for the project
  • How editing moved faster by syncing footage early on in Adobe Premiere
  • Filming on three different iPhones
  • Trusting the editor’s vision and storytelling abilities
  • Working with an aggressive post-timeline
  • Why Meghan decided to star in the film herself
  • Why it's important to have an AD
  • One of Lauren’s favorite things she has ever edited
  • Using hotkeys for everything you do in editing
  • Adobe’s goal behind this short film
