I make films & vlogs on an iPhone 6 plus
For starters, if you didn't take notes on set, I would recommend taking the time to watch through your footage & make detailed notes. It is a lot of work on the front end but it will make the process of cutting that much easier.
Then refer back to your script for your first cut & go scene by scene. After that first cut, start finding the story in editing. Try moving things around. Also something I will do is to mark out my 3 act structure according to the time frame the film needs to fit in & try to hit certain emotional points at my act breaks, turning points, etc.
Also a BIG thing to think about as you finish up your edit is to think about pacing. Do not be afraid to cut something if it makes the story stronger, even if it is a scene or shot that you love & spent a lot of time on in production.
Hope that helps!
It looks like it's well designed. However there are rigs out there that are adjustable regardless of what phone you have, be it android or apple. I would say the price point looks good & it looks like you're almost fully funded. Despite these things I applaud you for bringing a product to market & supporting smartphone video production!!!
For writing you may want to try a tool like "Flowstate" http://hailoverman.com/flowstate
Once you sit down & start typing, you won't be able to stop for whatever time period you've set, unless you want to loose your work! Write for 15 mins. a day.
I would also recommend at a minimum putting out weekly content somewhere online, whether that is shooting a vlog or writing a blog, etc. If you keep trying you will eventually find what works for you!
Hope that helps,
That mogopod looks really versatile for run & gun, event/doc work. Thanks for sharing. I think I may get me one soon!
Ya it is definitely frustrating to not be able to know if someone replies or to follow an ongoing conversation. It becomes difficult to have any kind of meaningful dialogue.
In response to the D5200, I must not be doing something right because it seems that even at ISO 100 with good lighting, anything trending towards black has noticeable banding and the only way to fix it seems to be to crush the blacks.
Any suggestions on what settings (profile, ISO, etc.) you use most often that give you the best results?
