@thejenniferzhang Hahahahaha There’s an idea! Pajama day like in school? 

Jennifer you edited and shot your entire feature with your phone. Does that experience motivate you to make another with your phone?

Hi. Took me forever to prove I'm not a robot, but I'm here for a bit.

It definitely has convinced me that far more is possible with a phone than I previously thought possible. When I started the project, I actually had no idea whether or not it'd work. But when I edited the first scene directly on the same phone I had taken the footage with... the result was shockingly legit so I just kept going... for about 50 more straight days! haha!

@susy It started out a small project for SHARE, an organization that provides support to women with breast, ovarian or uterine cancer.  It's interesting that it took the direction it took. I have worked on bigger budget films with 35mm film, lighting packages and grip packages, sound design, original music, soup to nuts...I had no expectation other than to tell an honest story using my iphone so I asked my friend and creative collaborator Jen Spenningsby to edit the piece, but she ended up directing it too. Unfortunately she cannot be here today. The film ended up taking on a little life of its own. I had no intention of even submitting it to a festival, but people kept telling me to, so I took a chance and here I am, and was pleasantly surprised and grateful for the opportunity to be part of this great festival.

@thejenniferzhang I can’t imagine that! How tedious was it? What app did you use?

@susy if you're asking me, my film is "Out of Thin Air." I shot this one with the help of a cinematographer/musician/music producer/good friend. I made a short doc about an actor who was once a model and now is building furniture, all based on the art of available resources. We shot this in two afternoons and I edited two versions before I was happy with it. The audio came first but I never had the time to edit a cut before we started shooting. So it was all pretty much on the fly with me finding a way to put it all together in the end.

@susy -- It was paradoxically both VERY tedious and limiting and yet VERY convenient and liberating! haha! I edited it in the app VideoShop, and I contacted the app developer with the film after it was completed. His mind was blown. He hadn't engineered it to be able to handle a full feature film and to his knowledge, I was the first person to use it for that purpose.

@athenae Glad you did! Unfortunately we could not hold the event live but our attendees and filmmakers during our festivals are very supportive of each others films no matter the genre. Alexandra Guillossou was in our last in person festival sharing a. Story about her brother and we all cried together.

@carterlil Share what motivated you to make your film which was very intriguing and abstract. I really enjoyed it.

@carterlil Hi Lily, your film was such a beautiful portrait of a woman and all her truths.
