Filmmaking & Journalism In 2012

by Da'Von B.

Entire film shot on a smartphone, I expect this to pick up substantially in 2012 and beyond the tools are easily available to aspiring filmmakers and journalists. Though this film cost half a million to make, there are indie filmmakers that will find a way around substantial costs and make the film worth viewing without sacrificing on quality of the storytelling or the quality of the filmmaking. Citizen journalism has been a major influence in 2011 with protests around the world, smartphones and simple video editing tools combined with sites such as Tumblr, Twitter, & YouTube will only heighten what individuals will be able to produce in the coming years.
