[alert style=”error”] After 6 awesome years on the job, the HHH App Directory will be shutting down soon. Why?  When the directory was first created, there were very few filmmaking apps in Apple’s App Store, and they were hard to find.  So, having a…

I relied on "Green Screener" for iPad on my short, 2084. Here are some sample green screen images!

I’ve written a lot about green screen shooting lately, so I’m going to keep this short.  As I mentioned a few posts back, I recently directed a short film called 2084, and relied heavily on an awesome iOS app called Green Screener. The app helps you light…

Here are a pair of great apps for checking green screen shot alignment with your iPhone or iPad. #filmmaker

Welcome back green screeners!  As you may recall, last week I explained how green screens help filmmakers to composite (combine) multiple layers of imagery.  Don’t remember that?  Here’s a 13 word reminder (not including “presto”):  Shoot actor against…

Are new iOS Camera Apps Helping or Hurting Filmmakers? #iPhone

While that overtly sensational headline may reek of clickbait, it’s also a fair and reasonable question – one I was asked while speaking on a Photography/Videography panel at this year’s Macworld Expo in San Francisco. Jeff Carlson, the panel’s moderator…

Crop on the Fly from @editonthefly helps turn vertical videos in to horizontal awesomeness!

Picture this… You’ve been camped out somewhere in the middle of the Nevada desert for the past 3 months. You’re chewing the remaining crumbs from your final Cliff Bar, and you’re long past your last pair of clean undies. You are a total mess, riddled with…

How I used Green Screener on my iPad to create an evenly lit green screen for easy composites! #filmmaking

What did you do last week?  I mercilessly tore my living room apart and temporarily transformed it into a green screen (a.k.a. “chroma key”) studio in which I directed a short comedy called 2084.  For as long as I can remember, my friends and I have joked…
