About This Class

Filmmaking is more accessible than ever before. Learn how to tell your stories with a camera you already have on you: your iPhone!

Join Caleb Babcock and Niles Grey in this crash course on iPhone filmmaking that covers everything from apps to exporting! While creating one video, Niles and Caleb will teach you fundamentals that can apply to every level of filmmaking you might want to try, whether you want to make short travel videos or longer narrative film. 

With their trademark senses of humor and approachable teaching style, Niles and Caleb will walk you through:

  • What apps and gear you need to get the most cinematic footage possible
  • How to use key pieces of gear, like lenses, tripods, and gimbals
  • Methods of filming core shots as well as experimental ones
  • The basics of transferring and editing your footage

You can shoot your own footage or practice your editing skills with Niles and Caleb’s files, whichever would be most beneficial to you! Join in — and start telling the stories only you can tell, with the tool you’ve already got on you, no shooting or editing experience required.
