Saba Hamedy: "Over the weekend, Indigenous Media released a feature-length horror thriller. But the film didn't bow in theaters or on a streaming service. Instead, it was quietly uploaded onto Snapchat."
Liz Nord: "No matter how you feel about it, virtual reality filmmaking and experiential storytelling is happening. And it's getting better and better. No longer just a gimmick, filmmakers are using the technology to serve the story instead of the other way around."
Scott Beggs: "Going behind the scenes has become the scene. Trailers have become the true first act of any movie. Casting announcements introduce us to characters now. Filmmakers and showrunners gamble with their creative license when they let loose a cliffhanger."
Kristen Santer: "The annual Sundance infographic is back to shed some light into how the films from last year's festival performed over the past 12 months, and many of the statistics reveal disheartening information."
Chuck Wendig: "[...] I wanted to take a look at the film for some of the storytelling lessons it offers — in this case, not negative lessons (of which you could find some, I’m sure), but rather, positive takeaways that might wet your mind whistle when it comes to thinking about your story or other stories or, I dunno, delicious enchiladas."
Benny Evangelista: "Miles Perkins, a spokesman for Jaunt, said virtual reality will change the way filmmakers tell stories. For example, closeup shots to emphasize a person’s reaction won’t necessarily have the same effect, because the viewer can choose to watch something else in the scene."
Angela Watercutter: "Making movies for virtual reality is unlike any previous kind of filmmaking. You can’t “frame” a 360-degree shot. There are no cuts. And, weirdly enough, the characters can know you’re there."
Zack Sharf: "For many, Snapchat is a fun photo-sharing platform best known for its wacky filters and geotags, but for a growing population of filmmakers and artists, the social media app is the new frontier for indie moviemaking and distribution."
Damon Beres: "Everyone takes snapshots on their iPhone, but maybe they should aim a bit higher. Smartphones are becoming a powerful tool for filmmakers who want to tell stories without spending thousands of dollars on high-end equipment."
Michael Morgenstern: "My other films are narratives which seek to understand the human experience — YouTube 360º isn’t quite ready for that. What it is ready for is an lulz-filled environment with something interesting happening in every corner, where people can watch for thirty seconds or two hours."
Matt Mulcahey: "Instead of limiting point of view to a single shaky handheld camera wielded by one of the characters, Unfriended unfolds entirely on the Mac laptop of Blaire, a high schooler who, along with five or her friends, is terrorized by the spirit of a cyberbullied classmate on the year anniversary of her suicide" ...
