  2. In this inaugural tutorial from Citizen Docs, I share some best practices for shooting a micro-documentary with your smartphone.

    Using my short film "The Artist” as a case study, I go over my process for conducting a shoot using my iPhone 5c as my primary camera. This tutorial covers what equipment I used, how I tackled storage and battery capacity issues, and some techniques for getting great shots with your mobile device.

    Citizen Docs offers free resources and tutorials on how to create compelling short documentaries using free and inexpensive tools. It has been a long-time idea of mine and it is my proposed project for a Fulbright Arts Grant that I’m applying for this Fall (2015).
