    Hi there,

    I'm taking a three-day canoeing trip next weekend and would like to try to make a half-decent short film of it using a few iPhones (I have two 4s and a 5c, so I'll bring them all fully charged).

    Budget is pretty low so my basic plan was to buy some sort of stabiliser or tripod and then some decent filming software, then edit it in iMovie after.

    Have read great things about both MoviePro and FilmicPro for filming, but given I'll only have a few days to play around with the app before leaving, I won't really have time to get to grips with two sophisticated apps and then make a choice. So I'm wondering if this forum has any advice on which app might be best.

    I'm basically looking for something that will be straightforward enough to learn and will help me to make the film, which will most be outdoor/landscape type stuff, look as good as possible.

    Any and all advice would be really appreciated.

    i only know filmic pro - but it's not that sophisticated. you should get the hang of it after a few minutes.

    basically, it gives you the possibility to lock exposure, focus and white balance independently from each other and to play a bit with resolution, framerates and bitrates. there's only so much you can do with the iphone's camera.

    The number one thing s to read a book on EDITING. Not a book on how to use some kind of editing software but on how to cut film. Knowing how to edit, just the very basics will tell you what sats you need to get. Like establishing long shots continuity of motion and so on.and b-roll stuff. Learn just the basics of film making. What camera you use or what software matters a lot less tan most people think.
