MOUNTAINS, CITY, SEA

 

Why not film for three days, one day in each place on an iPod Nano. I don't think anyone has ever filmed a movie on an iPod Nano. I've heard of movies made on phones. Could have a narrative structure but with room for improvisation with four actors. I think it would be a really cool experiment. Could be Catskill, New York, Long Island, north of Boston or Maine. 

 

Sequel, Camargue France  B)  

 
 

Maybe if there is a cinematographer out there interested, I could get the actor's side together.

Just because you can, doesn't mean you should... 

What would be the technical merits (if any) of shooting on an iPod, iPad, etc?

You should try anything creative, any experiment, live off the creative spark and run with it. Blair Witch Project was an offbeat, low-budget experiment and it became a legend.

Legend via multimillion dollar marketing budget. But that's not really the point. Of course go shoot, experiment-- have fun-- try something different. Get some friends together, film school students, and don't be afraid or worried it if looks like crap or doesn't work. You don't learn how to ride bikes without a few falls.

True, but if it's something that been done before, don't expect your results to be different or better.

 

If you listen to an old dog bark, you might see them holes before you fall....

True and true-- but how do you know how deep and dark the hole is unless you let yourself go down a few. Some people learn best by the screw ups.

Adrian, must you play "devil's advocate"? 

 

You only get to fold a parachute incorrectly........ once.

darwinism ;)

but no-- I honestly don't see the harm in people going out on their own time with like-mindeds and playing around. So it's been done by someone else before? who cares-- no one needs to see it if it's awful. Grab a few beers, an ipod nano, some good food, shoot a little thing on it-- I don't think it'll work, but hell maybe it will.
