PANEL: Mobile Filmmaking: How to Make a Movie Using a Smartphone
Mobile filmmaking is becoming the next big thing! You have heard of movies that used smartphone cameras to shoot, but you may still not be convinced that you can make a movie yourself using a smartphone from your own back pocket! Smartphone cameras now have the capability of shooting 4K -- which makes mobile filmmaking a possibility to be taken seriously. The founder of The International Mobile Film Festival in San Diego Susan Botello (S. Botello Productions) and San Diego mobile filmmakers Luis Juarez (IndieFone) and Rick Naravaez will share the ins and outs of what you need to get started as a mobile filmmaker. Do you need an app? Can you use microphones? How do you stabilize your videos for a smoother more professional look? Do you need a million dollars? Panelist will answer your questions and present some cool filmmaking tools and accessories. Get inspired to make movies, documentaries, promos, music videos, and just about any films using your smartphone as a camera! Learn to edit on the phone (or computer) and share your films with the world. Bring your smartphones and share the world of mobile filmmaking! With moderator Machelle Noel (Supergirl Unburdened, GeekRockTV).

Comic Creator Connection
NEW: Mon, Jul 11, 09:55AM
Are you a writer with a great idea for a comic book series, but you can’t draw? Or maybe you’re an artist looking to illustrate an incredible story, but you can’t write. Perhaps you’re both looking for someone to collaborate with so you can jumpstart your careers in the comic book industry. At San Diego Comic-Con 2016’s Comic Creator Connection, you just might find each other! San Diego Comic-Con is proud to once again host the Comic Creator Connection, a fast-paced networking event that puts writers and artists together to help them meet new creative partners. Here’s how it works: in two 2-hour sessions—on Friday, July 22, from 7:00 to 9:00 PM and Sunday, July 24, from 12:00 to 2:00 PM—writers and artists will sit down across from each other at a table. (And by artists, we mean pencillers, inkers, colorists, etc. All are welcome!) Then, in 5-minute sessions, you will talk one-on-one with each other about your ideas and skills. At the end of each 5-minute period, you will get up and move on to the next person. If you’re interested in furthering the conversation, you’ll exchange contact information. Think of it as speed-dating, but for writers and artists! Sign ups are taken in advance for this event, but space may still be available on site.
