The Art of Experimental Mobile Storytelling

We talk about storytelling a lot as part of this podcast when we talk about filmmaking. Our guest explains how experimental filmmaking with smartphones, taking advantage of the visual challenges of pixels fits into the storytelling discussion. Max Schleser has been working in the mobile filmmaking space as a filmmaker since 2006. Let’s take a trip through the history of smartphone filmmaking from his perspective.

Episode 41 of the SBP Podcast: The voice of mobile film™ is an in-depth discussion with an old friend and mobile film pioneer, Max Schleser. We met Max in 2011 and due to our passion for the mobile film industry, we have succeeded in hosting a film festival for mobile filmmakers every year as a live venue where filmmakers can attend and grow the community. Our conversation takes us into the history of experimenting with mobile phone cameras to the experimental artistic opportunities of smartphone cameras today with VR and 360 video.

Listen to a unique conversation with Max to get a first-hand insight into the world of mobile storytelling through experimental and innovative mobile camera technology.

Max is the cofounder of the Mobile Innovation Network about to hold it’s 8th International Mobile Innovation Screening at Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne, Australia on November 16. “MINA creates interactions between communities, content and the creative industries.”

Max explores innovative mobile tools to create visual mobile storytelling through creativity. Max also holds workshops to teach VR (virtual reality) 360 and 3D video.

His first mobile film, Max with a Kaitei was filmed in Japan, circa 2006 and used an early cell phone camera.

SBP Podcast: The Voice of Mobile Film™ is for everyone who ever wanted to or is curious about making movies and videos using smartphones.
