About This Class

Take Your Smartphone Video To The Next Level with The Ultimate FiLMiC PRO App Tutorial!

It’s hard to believe that 20 years ago, opportunities to shoot video on an iPhone, Android, or any smartphone didn’t even exist. The barrier for entering the filmmaking world required you to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars for equipment and gear. Plus, the internet was in its early stages and there wasn’t much of a way to watch video online or for anyone to share content.

Now, the barrier has been lifted. You can put a cinema camera next to an iPhone and the average person wouldn’t be able to tell the difference. Before, you had to get a deal with a TV station to play your content. Now, anyone can upload their content to YouTube, TikTok, Instagram, and other platforms, and potentially be seen by millions.

So where does Filmic Pro come in?

Most smartphones shoot video in automatic mode using AI to “attempt” take the best possible video. This can sometimes work but often it fails to decide on the right settings. The Filmic Pro app allows you to use manual controls and settings with your smartphone putting you in control. What this means is higher quality videos and more options for creatives.

This Course is Designed for YouTubers, Mobile Filmmakers, and Anyone Looking to Use Manual Controls on Their Smartphone.

I wanted to make this course beginner friendly as possible so anyone can learn the skills they need to create awesome content. From basic settings, to advanced features, I’ll walk you step by step so you’ll have the tools you need for each project. Then, I’ll share with you my exact settings that I use for YouTube videos as well as getting cinematic filmmaking shots.

1. Introduction.: Technology has advanced so far that we now have these incredible little cameras built right into our smartphone devices. And with the help of apps like filmic pro, it's easier than ever for anyone to shoot professional looking videos with their mobile devices. Hi, my name is Collin Michael and I've actually been teaching smartphone video and editing for the last three years online. And in this course, I'll be showing you how to make professional-looking videos using the filmic pro app. Whether you're looking to make YouTube videos or are actually interested in getting into mobile filmmaking. I'll be walking you through each step-by-step, showing you the basics of the app, as well as the best tips and tricks for getting that professional look, whether for U2 or for smartphone filmmaking, you'll even get a chance to practice the skills you've learned to be able to share them with everyone in the class and allow me to see them and be able to give you guys feedback on your videos. So if you're ready to learn the fundamentals of filmic pro, Let's jump into this course. 2. Screen Layout Overview.: So to start this course, what we're gonna do is jump into each of the settings within the filmic pro app just so that way you know what everything does and you can utilize it to make professional videos. Now I actually have some actors here who are going to be posing for us. I got Steven Terry who are going to be here today to help us kinda go through some of these settings and just kinda pose there for us. So what we're gonna do, let's just go ahead and jump into some of these settings here, just that we can see on the screen. If you look on the far right, that's where we'll start. You can see your sound bar going up and down. This will let us know whether we are peaking. We're basically getting into the red where that audio is no longer going to sound good. Right next to the audio bar, we have our record button. So this will allow us to click record and stop. Obviously, next to that we have that play icons. If you click on that, it will actually pull up all of the video clips that we've taken within this app so you can scroll through and look at all the different video clips. You can select them, you can delete them and you can also export them into your photo gallery. So that way you can edit them within your editor. X to that we have the Settings tab, which we'll be exploring a little bit later, but that's what we're going to be able to control a lot of the settings here within filmic pro. Next to that, you'll see this weird icon here. This is actually if your phone supports multiple cameras, like the iPhone 12 Pro Max, does this allow you to change the focal length so I could click on this one here. And it's gonna do a zoom in, really zooming in on Mr. Steve there. So let's choose zoomed in where it can't focus on them but is focusing on Terry over there. And then I can click on it again and go back to our regular focal length. Then here in the middle, you can see the battery icon to know how much battery you have left. You can also see how much storage is left there. How long you've been recording, the frame rate, and also the quality which we can see it's 30 frames per second, 10 ADP will be exploring what those terms mean a little bit later. And then on the bottom there's this little bar here. You can see this will actually, that's actually the way you can control how loud or how much audio you're actually pick it up. So if I scroll all the way down, as you can see on the far right side, there's no audio coming through. It is completely silent. So what we can probably do is just put it up to probably right there. As you can see, I'm kinda hitting that 1813 kinda mark that's probably a good spot to keep my audio. I can always increase it later. So yeah, very useful. Little knob here that you can use to adjust your audio. Now keep going left. We now have this a button. Basically there are some settings in here that can help us get the best scene possible and also help if our focus, which we'll be exploring a little bit later. Next to that, we have some options here to control our ISO, our shutter speed, our focus, and our Zoom. And we'll also be getting into that a little bit later. And next to that is also our color options. So this is going to be things like white balance, making sure you're setting your white balance to whether it's daytime or cloudy. But you also have options to change the profile picture of your video and some other brightness and color settings that we'll also explore. Now you'll also notice on the front here there's this white square box and this white circle. So basically what those control, this white square box is actually going to control our focus. So if we move it over Terry, it is going to focus on her. But if we move it back to Steve, it's going to focus on him. So this can help us get that focus. And then if we click on the white box, it'll actually lock the focus so it will always stay at that focal point no matter which way we're looking where the return towards Terry or not, it's going to stay focused on Steve. And then this white circle is actually exposure. Basically, that's going to control how bright the scene is going to be. It'll try to automatically expose it in and you can click on the circle again. And it's going to lock that exposure So that way, whether it gets darker or brighter out your phones not trying to automatically adjust, its going to keep the exact same settings that you have said or that were automatically set. So that's a quick look at our front screen here. And although they'll settings surrounding that, and now let's take a deeper look into our settings. 3. Using Manual Controls Within Filmic Pro.: Let's take some time and explore the main settings tab. So what I'm going to do is click on that. All right, here on the screen. And this is going to pull up a whole bunch of options that we can choose from. Now some of these aren't that useful and others are really useful. So I'm going to be trying to cover all the main ones you need for filming on your iPhone. So on the top will go from the top and we'll head right. First is resolution. So if we click on that, what that's going to do is show us three things. First of all, on top is going to be our format. So as you can see, it says 16 by 9, but what we can actually do is change that format. So for example, if you're someone who likes, so cinematic black bars on your video, you could choose a two-by-two by one, or a two by 76 by one. And as you can see, those black bars have appeared on the screen. So you can actually film in that format and not have to add it later when you're editing. So I find that to be a really nice feature. For now. We're going to be sticking with 16 by 9. That's just the regular video format for online. And then down below we have access to the quality of our videos. So we have HD right now. But we can click over and go all the way up to four k If we really wanted to just get that focus back. Resolution. Or you can even go down all the way to standard definition if you really wanted to. Depending on, you know, maybe you're shooting a long video and you need to go full or quality so you don't run out of storage. So that's where that could be useful. For. Now. We're just going to keep it on 10 ADP. And then down below that we have the quality of that high definition or of that video. So you could shoot at filmic extreme, this is going to give you the highest quality possible of that video. So if it's full HD, It's going to be a super high-quality full HD. Whereas if we went all the way over to the left economy, you'll be able to have more footage to store on your device because you're shooting at a lower quality HD. It's not taking up as much storage, but it's also going to look pretty bad because, you know, there's, there's less data there within your files. So depending on which you shoot in, the lowest, I would probably go would be Apple standard because that should be the standard that apple shoots in. But if you really want to get the best image, I would highly recommend shooting at that filmic extreme because it's going to give you the best quality video that you can get. And then you can actually scroll down just a little bit further down here. And you can actually switch between 8-bit and 10-bit video. And basically the difference between that is that 10-bit is going to have more detail and more color to it compared to the 8-bit version. Now you're really only going to be shooting in 10-bit if you're really wanting to do a lot of color grading to your footage and really wanting to customize the look of your video. Otherwise, you should be totally fine shooting your video in 8-bit. And that's pretty much the resolution settings. So I'm just going to tap off to go back. And then let's take a look at our frame rate. So frame rate, or FPS, is basically how many pictures your phone is taking per seconds. So normal video is usually shot at 30 frames per second, whereas movies are shot at 24 frames per second. And then there's also 60, 120, and 240. Now 60 is usually what I see. So it's a very kind of smooth type look. And then a 120 and 240 are commonly used for slow motion video. So you have access to those frame rates as well. Now you also have the option to choose time-lapse on here. So if you click on that, actually be able to do time-lapse is where you take a bunch of pictures over a long period of time and you can actually set the intervals for that time-lapse. So if you want it to take a picture every 10 seconds, you could do that. Click Record, leave your phone there and it'll continue to take pictures every 10 seconds. So that way you can create a awesome time-lapse. But we're just going to go back to standard for now. And then we're gonna back out of our frame rate. Next to that we have audio options. So you can actually choose which microphone you want to use while filming on your iPhone. I don't usually mess with the microphone settings. There's also the option to a Bluetooth microphone and some other stuff in here. But I've never messed with this really, unless I really wanted to make sure the audio is coming from a specific microphone on my iPhone. So we can back out of that. Next, we have the device options here, so you could add the videos automatically saved to your camera roll. And then there's a few options in here. I've never really touched any of these, but there are here to want to change those settings in the next two. This is also presets. So if you want to have the exact same settings always saved within your phone, you could save them as a preset and then select them. And then it'll automatically change to the exact settings. That you want for that video. Never used that before either. But that is an option that's their CMS on the screen is something more used for those movie clipboard kinda stuff. So never use that hardware actually might be something useful if you end up buying certain gear, like a DJI, Osmo Mobile stabilizer or any of these adapters or lenses. You can actually turn on each of these and it'll adapt the screen and the hardware for those devices or lenses. So you can back out of that. Now the other important things on here would be stabilization. So make sure that's turned on if you want the phone to try and automatically stabilize your footage. You also have options here to change which cameras in use. And then this torch will actually turn on your torch flashlight. And you can control how bright that is. If you want to use that front light built right into your phone. The guide here is actually this grid that you can see on the screen. So I can turn it off, turn it back on. I think the red is useful because it can help you frame your shot and be able to follow filmmaking techniques. So I like to keep the grid on to help me align my shot with those intersecting points on the grid. Now moving on to the other settings here within the app, Let's go to this icon. We're just going to click on that. And there are two main ones that you may want to consider using. The first is going to be this zebra on the far left here. If I click on that, you can see on the screen that those black and blue lines, what that's basically showing us is the parts of the video that are underexposed. So my screen is obviously black and there's no detail there. So it's letting me know, hey, on this image, it's little too dark here and I can't see the camera, can't see any detail there. So basically it's going to help you make sure that your video is exposed properly, that there's no spots that are too dark, but also that there are no spots that are too bright. So for example here, if we were to turn this really up super bright, which as you can see, it's really, really bright. It's overexposed. If I turn that on it, it'll show me white and red stripes. They're saying, Hey, it's way too bright. I can't see any detail here. You probably want to make sure that your exposures down. So that's very useful if you are trying to properly expose your videos. Now the second icon with an under this a thing, it's on the far right here. It's called FP. Now what that's going to do, as you can see on the screen, you see those little green around ski there. What it's telling us is that he's in-focus, the green will be around whatever's in focus. So if I take this and I put it over our other actor here, Terry, as you can see, she now turns green, lending us know that the camera is focused on her. So if you're really trying to make sure you're in focus, what you can do is turn this on, put it over your cursor though the focus box over your character, you'll see those green lines around your actor. You will know, yes, this person is in focus, this shot is correct. So that is a very useful feature if you're trying to get your focus. These other two here are kind of similar where they're trying to help you with getting that exposure. I just find this zebra stripes and to be the most useful and also the focus guide that is also something very useful. So we're going to turn off the a here, and right next to it, we're going to click on that little circle. Now it's going to pull up our ISO, our shutter or focus, and our Zoom settings. Now if you're a bit new to video and filmmaking, you're not sure what shutter speed or ISO is. I'll briefly define what those terms are here. The simplest way of understanding ISO is digital brightness. That's basically what it is. There's probably in technical terms, that's not really what it is, but that's probably the simplest way to understand it. Basically, the higher your ISO is, the more fuzzy your video's going to look. So if you ever shot video at night and you know as taus poor quality and there's all these little fuzzy pixels floating around the screen. That's because ISO is cranked all the way up to try and brighten up those dark spots. But as a result of it being digital, it's not going to look its best. So a good rule of thumb is to try and keep your ISO as low as possible when shooting video and try to get as much light in there as possible so you don't have to use that digital brightness. And a simple way of understanding shutter speed. Basically how smooth your video is. So the lower you get your shutter speed, the more blur gets put into the video. Whereas the higher your shutter speed gets, it's going to be very focused without any blur in your image. So right now, on the left side you can see that on top is our ISO, which is actually at 71, uh, usually on a smart phone, it's safe to go up to like 200, 300 ISO. But getting any higher than that, the image is going to start looking fuzzy. And for the shutter speed, the best way to set your shutter speed is to have it double the frame rate of your video. So as you can see on the bottom, we're at 30 frames per second. So basically our shutter speed should be double that, which means it should be at 160th, going any higher than that. 160th is going to basically remove the blur from your videos and he's going to give it that smartphone type video look because that's basically how smartphones take video. If you ever have seen that look, SparkFun produces, it's usually because the phone automatically cranks that shutter speed up to like 2000, 3000, and 5000, which gives the video footage that phone look. So always try to make sure if you can keep that shutter speed only double whatever frame rate you're shooting at. Now if we want to adjust these settings, what we can actually do is if we click on our shutter speed here, I'm so click on it. You'll notice it turns red, which means it's locked. It's not going to move, which is good because it's right now at double the amount of that frame rate. But now that that's locked, it will actually allow me to adjust the ISO with this little knob here so I can crank it up, I can pull it down even lower, kinda like like it at 34 compared to the 130 there. So we're going to leave that at 34. And then if we wanted to change the shutter speed, we could lock the ISO by just touching on it. And then we can drag this. We could bring it down to 5000 or it could crank it back up to 30. And as you notice, as you lower the shutter speed, they actually makes the video a bit darker as well. It's going to be smoother. As you can see there, there's no real borer happening. But if we turn it up too, that are turned down to that 160. And we move the camera here. And also there's blur now. It's now a blurry type video. So basically when you lock your shutter speed, you can change your ISO. And when you lock your ISO, you can change your shutter speed. And then on the far right we have the focus and zoom tabs. So if we click on this focus 1, we can actually control our focus manually. So there's Mr. Steve, you can focus it on Terry and that's worth that. Focus helps for if we were to turn this sun. If we were to manually change focus, we can know. All right. He's in focus now. She is. He's in focus now. She is very useful to have that option there. And then the other one here is going to be your Zoom. So this is going to do a digital zoom, but if you want to actually use it, build a zoom in a bit. You can actually use that digital zoom and have it within your video. Now when we touch off of this, what you'll notice is the red circle is locked and the red square is locked. So if you change your ISO and your shutter speed, it'll lock it for you so that way it doesn't automatically change it in reverse all the settings you just change. If you want to ever go back to automatic, you just click on the red circle, it'll turn white. And that means it's going to automatically adjust those settings, same as the focus if we had to focus set on her. Now we want it to do automatic. We can just tap on that. And now it goes back to automatic focus and adjust to Steve who's right in front of us. And finally, let's go to the far left setting, which is going to be our color options here. So the top here is going to be our white balance. So we can set it to automatic and it will automatically adjust for us and kinda automatically do it. Otherwise, they do have some presets, which we can click through to try and get the right color temperature. Or you can even customize it by just touching the screen so I can make it warmer, can make it colder, more green or pink. So I can do it all myself, our team, and grab these knobs here and adjust the color temperature. That way. I like to have it automatically go just so it sets it. And then what I'll do is just click one more time on the auto automatic white balance button. And I'll say it is locked. There we go, locked. It's not going to change on me. Now it's really important to not leave it in automatic mode because your phone will change it from blue to orange to blue to orange to blue to orange. And I'll try and automatically do it. It'll make your video look really weird. So either choose one of those preset settings. Or let it automatically set it for you and then lock it into place and leave it like that. So that way, you don't have a weird disco party because your phone's trying to get the right white balance in your video. Now down below this, this is actually part of the cinematography kit that you have to buy, spend an extra, I believe, $15 with filmic pro to unlock it. But I do want to cover it here. And what you can do with this is changed the profiles of your videos. So right now it seems natural, but if I actually click on a few of these, you'll see how it kind of changes, how the video looks. So natural is going to really just kinda show you how your phone normally films, you know, regular iPhone footage. But if you were to choose something like flat or log, as you can see, it's kind of washed out a bit. You know, it's not as colorful. And the reason why is because that flat in that log profile, what's actually doing is it's trying to gather as much detail from the video is possible. So it wants to try and lift the shadows up a bit so it gets all the detail of anything that's in the shadow, but then also lowers the brightness a bit so it can capture all of that. So in filmmaking terms, It's getting as much dynamic ranges possible. It's trying to gather all the detail from the entire scene, whether it's bright, whether it's dark. So that way later when you are editing, you can add color back in. You can change those colors settings and adjust them, bring back all the color. But now that now they now you have access to everything in the shadows and in the highlights. And you had that detail there, which is really nice. I always shoot my video in flat. So that way I get, I like how that looks and I believe that gathers a lot of detail within the image. Now down below that you do have the option here to manually change how the highlights look and the shadows. But I'm probably just going to leave it normal as it is. And then down below that you actually have options to change the saturation and vibrance. If you actually want to add color automatically to the video just to film, you could do that. Creates the vibrancy and colorful. That is, it's pretty intense. But you can always do that later in post-production. So I never really touched this. So I'm just going to leave it back At its starting spot here. Yeah, You could also bring it all the way down and go into a black and white color if you really wanted to. We're probably just going to leave it as is. Now, those are the settings of filmic pro. But what I want to do is show you how I set up and use filmic pro when I'm shooting my videos. So I'm gonna show you how I shoot my YouTube videos, but also show you how I get cinematic results within filmic pro. So that way you have a general idea of how he, in a real-world example of someone using filmic pro and how I go through each of the settings. 4. Best Settings for YouTube Videos.: All right, so let's take a look at the settings that I would use for shooting a YouTube video. Now, obviously a very important part of this is having your lighting down properly. So I've actually got actually pick up my phone here and kinda show you guys. So I've got a light right here. I've got the phone right there. Then the other side, I have this light right here. And obviously behind me, I've got all that background lighting. Now, getting your lighting to be setup properly is huge because that's ultimately going to help with shooting within the app and help you get a really nice professional look. Make sure that you have good lighting and that's all set up. Even if it's just lights from around the house. It doesn't have to be expensive paid lights just make sure you have light around you because that's going to help you keep that ISO, that digital brightness down really low, so your videos look good. So let's jump in so many settings that I would do. So the first thing I'm gonna do is go to my resolution, which in 16 by 9. If I'm doing a YouTube video, and to be honest, I don't even mess around with for chaos. I still shoot in 10 ADP. It looks great on a smart phone. Still good quality. And then I'll also shoot in filmic extreme because I want to have the highest quality, 10 ADP. I don't mess around with four K because it's such a big size. It takes up all my storage. And a lot of people aren't watching my videos on 4k TVs, so 10 ADP, totally fine. My frame rate, I like to keep it at 30 frames per second for YouTube videos. Now you could shoot at 24 frames per second if you really wanted to. I find 30 frames per second easier because also my screen recorder, like what you're watching this on right now, is 30 frames per seconds. So something you want to try and do is keep your frames per second all the same throughout the video of kids. Sometimes he can get kinda weird if you're using 24 frames and then for something else using 30 frames, you want to try and keep it as consistent as possible. So for settings, That's all I'm really going to do. I am using the front-facing camera. I'm not even using the back cameras and using the front-facing one, which actually doesn't have focus abilities. That's why it's right now this red square on the screen is because there's no focus. It's a, it's just a fixed focus lens. So even if I put my hand close, It's not going to focus on my hand it There's no focus capability. Is there a Ken however, control my exposure. So I'm going to do that. So when I open up those settings right here, and I'm already on 160, so you know, I'm going to be locking that. And then it looks like I could technically lower my ISO a bit, but I don't want it to get too dark as you look around my hair here, it's getting kind of dark if I lower it all the way and that back wall might lose some detail. And ultimately my goal is to get the most detail as possible on my footage. I could always go back into my editor and lower the shadows down to make it darker or lift the highlights to make it brighter. So I'm actually going to probably leave it at 60 to extended. I'm getting enough of the wall were there'll be detail. Everything is still looking good behind me. I like that. So I'm going to leave it locked there. So there we go. Everything is locked. Just like that. Audio wise, I think I'm doing okay. You know, I'm kinda getting close to that 11, 10 mark, but I think it should be alright there. And next I'm gonna go into my color settings. We're gonna do the automatic white balance. There we go. Click it again to lock it so it doesn't change. It's going to always remain know that color, no disco show. I'm gonna go down to here and I'm going to choose that flat profile. So notice that difference between the flat brightens up those shadows in the background. And then also my beard in my hair. You know, it's going to get as much detail as possible so that way I can always change it when I color grade. And other than that, those are my settings. And then with some color grading, I'll show real quick what that looks like they're in. That is how I would shoot a YouTube video. So check those settings, ISO, your shutter, your resolution in your frame rate, and also your white balance. And you'll have in awesome shot for your YouTube videos. 5. Best Settings for Cinematic Video.: So now let's take a look at what settings I would use to get cinematic video within filmic pro. Now I've got my actors setup here. One of them appears to be pretty upset. This is going to be an intense scenes. So let's go ahead and jump into some of these settings that I would set up. Obviously, first I'm gonna make sure my audio is good. Which actors can't talk at this point, but still it's something I would take a look at first. So I'd use that little knob on the bottom there. Make sure I'm getting the correct level of audio for my actors. Then what I'm gonna do is go into my settings and go to resolution. And I'm gonna make sure I'm on 10 ADP, but I'm also going to do the two by two by one. And as you can see, here's the regular video. And then by just adding those bars over the top, we've already given it that kind of cinematic look just by putting those black bars over the video. I love the black bars. So once that's added, next, I'm going to go into my settings and frame rate, and I'm actually going to switch it to 24 frames per second because that is the movie look kind of frame rate. You're going to be soon cinematic video, you've got to shoot it in 24 frames per second. So once that said, I'm actually going to hop back out. I'm going to make sure that my stabilization and also might grow. My guide is active because you last thing you wanna do is shoot video and establish stabilization was off and it's all shaky. And you also wanna make sure that guide is on there so you can really align your actors. I already have Steve lined up using that intersecting point on that three-by-three grid. And also I have teary lined up with the other side, which is exactly what I want. So I've got 24 frames per second, 10 ADP. Next thing I'm gonna do is open up my color options here. I want to make sure my auto about my white balance is set. I'm gonna let it do it automatically. They're awesome. And I'm going to click on it again to lock it. So that's all set. I'm going to go down here and I'm going to choose that flat image so that way I can color grade it later because I really want to, if I'm going to be shooting cinematic video, I really want to have options when color grading it later when I take it into my video editor. So I won't always want to make sure I'm shooting in that flat format may not look the coolest while I'm filming it. But once I apply that color grade, it's going to look awesome. So that's all set. Then what I'm going to do is click off. We're going to click on the ISO and shutter speed option. And as you can see, it's set to one slash 48. So I'm going to lock it because again, we wanna make sure our shutter speed is double the frame rate. So we're shooting in 24 frames per second. So double that, it would be 48. So 140th is going to be our shutter speed. If you don't have the option for 140th and only 150th go if 150, if your goal is to get as close as you can to that spot words double the frame rate. And then for my ISO, I'm actually going to see if we can, if getting it a little bit lower will help. There we go. I'm getting this lowest possible 34. That's what I'm going to try and shoot at. I'm in a well-lit environment. I've got light sun and light coming from the window. So in a darker setting, maybe I might have to increase that ISO. But again, I want to keep it as low as possible. And for now, I'm going to probably just keep the focus as is when I touch off. Everything is locked her all set. And now let's just take a look and see how this would look if it was colored graded. And there we go. I think that looks great. And that is how I would shoot cinematic video with filmic pro. 6. Class Project.: So for your class project where I want you to do is either walk around your house or outside your house in practice taking videos with the filmic pro app. Use all the skills you've learned. Use those settings and start taking some video clips. And then what I want you to do is upload in the class project section, your best clip that you believe turned out really well. It doesn't have to be edited at all. Just go out, take some video clips, make sure you put into action everything you've learned, and then just upload your favorite clip just so we can all see your awesome videos that you've taken. So I look forward to seeing those in the class project section. I'll be engaging with you guys. And yeah, action puts what you've learned actually into your head. So I hope you take action and hope to see your projects over there. 7. Conclusion.: And that brings us to the end of this course. I hope you had a chance to practice those skills and put them into use. And I hope you'll take this knowledge and that you'll go and create something awesome with these new skills. I look forward to seeing what you guys do. I hope you'll take some time and check out the other courses that I've produced here on Skillshare. And thanks for watching this course. I hope to see you guys later.
