Clips are very important to an actor that’s just starting out. Sometimes they can be very hard to get. Technology, however, is making it much easier to create our own content. If you have a smartphone or tablet, some creativity and a little patience, you can create content that looks professional and will put your talents on display.
The first app I would recommend is FiLMiC Pro. This app increases the manual setting capabilities of your phone. It allows you to have more control and make your video look more professional.
The next is Movie Looks. This is a post-production app that allows you to color-grade your video and give the final product a look similar to many of the popular TV shows and movies.
Also, get a good editor. I use iMovie, because I have an iOS device. There are several other premium and free options, though.
Obviously it takes more than just a couple of apps to create a great scene, but these apps will help you upgrade what you’re doing. I’ll get more in depth on self-shooting in a later post. At the time of this post, both of these were paid apps. In the meantime, get to work!
