Hi! My name is Florian and I am the author of this blog which is about mobile media creation in many forms, particularly by using smartphones. I find it quite amazing what such small devices are capable of these days – and all that while fitting in your pocket. They are maybe not the perfect tool for every job, but ignoring their potential would be a big mistake in my opinion – they will play an even bigger role in the near future so don’t miss out on that! I hope you find the information provided here useful. If you would like to learn more about certain topics or the potential of mobile media creation in general, for yourself or your organization/company, feel free to get in touch regarding (online) consultation or training (in English or German): smartfilming (at) live.com. I am based in Germany.
I have a Magister Artium degree in Theater- and Media Studies and started out as a freelance videographer/video producer in 2009, mostly for a wide range of theaters and opera houses. I have also been working as a (music) theater dramaturg since 2012. In 2014, I launched a Twitter account dedicated to mobile media creation (@smartfilming) and subsequently chose to branch out with this blog for longer articles about the topic. I’m happy that I’ve been able to share my interest and knowledge in this field as a speaker, presenter and workshop instructor at dedicated conferences including MoJoCon 2015, MoJoCon 2017, MoJoCon 2018 and MoJoFest 2019.
