Submissions are now open for the Mobile Motion Film Festival in Zurich.

The Mobile Motion Film Festival in Zurich is an amazing opportunity to not only meet and learn from fellow smartphone video producers, but also a great opportunity to submit your work, win some prizes, and have a lot of people watch your video. The festival is slated for June of 2019.

You can submit here.

Whether you already have a video you shot in mind or you plan to shoot something just for the festival, there are multiple categories for which you can submit. The festival says they are taking submissions of any length in categories including Best Documentary, Best Fiction, Best Music Video, Best Travel Video, and more. The only requirement is that all of your video is shot on a mobile device. According to the submission description, this includes smartphones, tablets, and GoPro cameras, but not DSLR or other small cameras. Why GoPro is ok but other small cameras are not is beyond us, but as long as you're shooting with your smartphone you'll be all clear. 

For more information about the festival check out their website or Facebook page.

If you have been following us here at TheVJ.com, you know that we are very in favor of smartphone video production. Pretty much anyone with a smartphone has a broadcast quality camera with them at all times. The monetary barrier to entry for filmmaking is basically non-existent these days. Additionally, there are amazing smartphone accessories, some of which we have written about and reviewed here on VJ World, that can enhance your video's quality for a fraction of the price of what the traditional equivalent would have been.

Smartphones have truly revolutionized the world of video and have opened up a whole world of opportunities for millions of people around the world. The only barrier to entry now is your own will. 

If you have always wanted to be a filmmaker or produce video but never knew where to start, we are here to help. We can teach you how to shootedittell stories, and make money with your smartphone. Check out our mobile section to see more and sign up for a 10-day free trial here.

Bad News, Good News

The old news mantra — if it bleeds, it leads has been replaced by if it’s gross, adios. The prospect of a news-free electorate is terrifying.

The news business is in trouble. In the past decade, more than 2400 local newspapers have closed. NBC Nightly News gets 5 million viewers per night, in a nation of 340 million people, so most people are not watching. What are they watching? Netflix.

For most of human history, people lived in a world without news. The concept simply did not exist. The idea of news is really a 19th-century phenomenon, driven first by newspapers, and then by electronic media which brought us radio, then TV and now the web. Now, it seems, we are headed back to a world without news. Not because the technology is not there, but rather because, increasingly, people are no longer interested in news, at least in the way it is packaged now.
