How this short film was made with a single video app

Filmakr creator George Spyros shot on his trusty iPhone 6S+.The Beastgrip Pro provided stability. A Beastgrip wide-angle lens makes the establishing shot nice and grand. The cold shoe mount held the Sennheiser shotgun for nice directional audio.  A Filmakr custom preset was created for this series of films. The 1080p preset included a Music Bed, Intro / Outro titles and Intro Bumper. He shot the interview with CEO Hing Yin Lai and then the b-roll footage. He edited by slicing the interview clips and removing unwanted sound bites. After rearranging the sound bites to tell the story, he imported some video from the MetronForce website via Dropbox. This footage was used to illustrate the interview leveraging Filmakr’s one-of-a-kind drag-and-drop b-roll feature.

Remote Control with MetronForce

The mForce wristband has a mesh-like network and biometric feedback to control multiple objects. The idea is to be able to control objects in the way The Force is used in Star Wars. With a few taps of the wristband, different objects can be controlled. In this film we see a quadcopter, toy robot and a BB8 miniature get the mForce treatment. Also, a lightbulb is dimmed and brightened all by the movement of the wrist. You know you want one…
