Film making is very expensive venture even if you’re doing it on your iPhone. Mobile film makers don’t have this huge budget to make movies, so Guerrilla filmmaking was born for independent filmmakers. Basically it’s filmmaking with out permits and getting scenes shot as quickly as possible with a skeleton crew.
Guerrilla Filmmaker is an app made for mobile filmmakers on a very tight budget and a skeleton crew. The developer’s philosophy is to use as much screen as possible with a simple user interface while filming with a hand free experience. It has manual controls like a DSLR with professional looking results. I’ve been playing around with this app and made a couple of short clips with the app.
I highly recommend you check your settings and make all your adjustments before you start filming.
Then second I would go and review the tutorials, so you have a good idea on how to use the app.
Guerrilla has memory settings for focusing, zooming and white balancing. Which helps with professional and dramatic movie effects. What’s great about the memory buttons are you don’t have to worry about playing with the slider while you’re filming your movie. It’s handy and all you have to do is dial in your settings and save them in one of the memory buttons (M1, M2 and M3).
You get an idea of how the M buttons work with Guerrilla by looking at the screen shot.
You can still do everything manual if you prefer with the slider. What makes the app special is how the tools and settings work seamless with the screen without sacrificing what you’re watching being filmed on the screen. This is what gives the app a more hands free experience.
Overall Guerrilla Filmmaker has a beautiful and easy to use interface. It’s one of the more intuitive video app for mobile movie maker. I like how the tools and settings doesn’t take up screen space and blends in while you’re shooting your movie. I’ve been looking for a got to video app and Guerrilla Filmmaker seems to be the one. Guerrilla Filmmaker sells for $3.99 (iPhone Only), has no in-app purchases and requires iOS 8. If you have the app, I highly recommend sending the developer with helpful feedback to improve the app’s quality. The developer is planning to work on de-squeeze for the Moondog Labs Anamorphic 1.33x Lens in the future. You also have the option of external image flip for people who like to use DoF adapters which attached SLR lenses. This app is fully loaded with lots of great features.
Here are a couple of short clips I did with Guerrilla Filmmaker. I still need to do some practicing but I’ll get the hang of it. I really like this video app a lot. I want to thank Reuben Smart for letting me review his app. If you have any questions about this blog post, please leave comments or email me email@example.com. Have a great day and see you soon !!!
