Pocket Filmmaker: smooth aerial movements

If you're committed to using a smartphone for your shooting, here's a few ways to get slick, smooth movement like you'd get from a crane or jib with a bigger camera.

Welcome back to CNET Australia's guide to pocket film-making. The Pocket Filmmaker, Jason van Genderen, will be showing you how to turn the smartphone in your pocket into a camera capable of shooting video projects that are worthy of sharing with family and friends, online and even with the judges of some of Australia's biggest short-film festivals.

On this occasion, Jason shows how to get slick, smooth crane- and jib-style movement for your pocket films. As mentioned in the video, you can check out the Australian made Boom Bandit right here.

You can also catch up on past episodes from the series:

Jason Van Genderen was the winner of several short film-making awards at festivals including Tropfest NY, Tropfest Sydney and Aspen Shortsfest, and he has even won an IF Award. Jason's projects have been shot on the Nokia N95, Nokia N8 and Apple's iPhone.
