MINA INTRO /2

For the 4th edition of the International Mobile


Innovation Screening MINA is honoured to
announce Robert Cahen as creative patron.
Cahen is recognized as one of Frances foremost
video artists and has produced a distinguished
body of work for cinema and television since 1972.
His dreamlike journeys depict fleeting glimpses
of a transitory reality, transformed in time within
the pictorial frame. Reviewing the MINA On the
Move Program, which is curated by Max Schleser in
collaboration with Gerda Cammaer (Canada),
he said:
A new artistic moment of mobile movingimage production is born. MINA creates
a new vision embracing movement in
mobile video.
The #MINA2014 showcases the contemporary
artistic vision of the mobile, camera and smartphone
filmmakers from around the world who increasingly
produce projects on the move.

The Mobile Innovation Network


Aotearoa [MINA] is an
international network that
promotes cultural
and research activities to expand
the emerging possibilities of
mobile media. MINA aims to
explore the opportunities for
interaction between communities,
content and the creative
industries within the context of
Aotearoa / New Zealand and
internationally.

Foreword
The

2014

International

Screening

Program

features award winning mobile, smartphone and


pocket films from MINAs partner festivals around
the world. We are proud to present works from
the IPhone Film Festival (Hollywood USA), Super
9 (Portugal), SeSIFF (Korea), Cinephone (Spain),
Mobile Film Festival (Macedonia) and Mobil
Film Festival (USA). The International Screening
Program also includes Departure (USA), Calling
Soon (Spain), Classified (Canada), Study on
Persistence (Brazil), Sequence 09 (New Zealand
/ Aotearoa) and the MINA mobile filmmaking
workshops videos (New Zealand / Aotearoa).
The films for this program were selected as a
provocation to open up a debate at the MINA
International Mobile Innovation and Creativity
Symposium. This work is not only making use of
the smartphone in creative ways, but it also offers
a critical perspective.
The theme of the MINA program this year is
On The Move. In response to an open call for
submission more mobile, smartphone and pocket
films were submitted than ever before. This year
already in its 4th edition, the MINA showcase
includes micro-movies and micro-formats on
travel and mobility, as well as various adventure
films. Mobile cameras are more obiquitous
than ever before, and their vastly improved
technical standards are beginning to seriously
challenge DSLR still cameras in terms of image

#Selfie #NoFilter
Patrick Kelly
The short experimental film #Selfie #NoFilter (2014) utilises mobile video, Instagram,
screenshots, and After Effects to prompt a series of questions concerning the nature
of contemporary mobile self-portraits, or selfies. In doing so, the film engages with
concepts surrounding the areas of modernity, social media, mobile photography
aesthetics, ego, celebrity, co-presence, and self. The film depicts the pre-production,
production, post-production, and exhibition stages of creating a selfie on Instagram,
ultimately providing a representation of the mechanical process of modern
photography. Patrick Kelly is a filmmaker, writer, and academic working in Melbourne.
He completed his PhD in Creative Media at RMIT in 2013. The practice-led project
had a focus on auratic experience, Slow Media, transmedia storytelling, and social
networking. He produced a feature-length documentary for the project, entitled Detour
Off the Superhighway, which is currently being prepared for commercial release. Patrick
currently serves as a Co-Director of Critical Animals creative research symposium, which
takes place in Newcastle during October of each year, as part of This Is Not Art festival.

1+1 - Short Film


Lesiji Wei
I was planning to make a short video that reveals the intimate relationship between
people, while adapting the quality of intimacy that were provided to us from mobile
phones. The faces of the characters will be not showed but only their hands in the video.
All the shots were close-ups filming in close distance for the purpose of demonstrating
the mobile phones are our intimate friends, who witnesses our everyday life nearby.
In order to simulate the mobile phones perspective, the phone was left recording in its
usual places where I normally put, such as, on my lap, on the dashboard, or on the table.
Also the video indicates the mobile phones work as an important connection between
people. My name is Lesiji Wei, I am from China, I graduated from Swinburne University
of Technology in the degree of Bachelor of Multimedia Design. I am currently doing my
Master of Communication degree at RMIT.
MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA / iPhone 5s

City Transit - Experimental


Taien Ng-Chan
These four videos are a meditation on riding the city transit system; they explore
urban travel through patterns and rhythms, faces, sound and light. It is about the visual
elements of poetry and narration, the intersections between text and voice, sound and
image. The four sequences are all shot on low-resolution cellphone and digital camera
video, then blown up to emphasize the abstraction of form and movement. An added
bonus was that the digital noise often obscured the faces of the anonymous commuters
that I caught on camera (I asked friends to be extras for the other close-ups). These
four specific sequences explore the ubiquitous sounds of cellphones, the movement
of sunlight, people caught sleeping in transit, and a spoken word rumination on the
brief interactions experienced on the bus. Taien Ng-Chan is a writer, artist, and scholar
in the Ph.D. in Humanities at Concordia University in Montral, Canada. Her work
investigates everyday urban life through locative media and mobility, particularly the
act of commuting. She has published two books of poems, edited two anthologies, and
produced a multimedia CD; as well, she has written drama for stage, screen, and radio.
Her video and media works have been shown across Canada, in the US, Korea, Sweden,
and the UK. For more info: www.soyfishmedia.com.

skyward - Experimental
Anne Massoni
Stand still and look up. With our phones always pointing out at the word, we rush
to capture our experiences, sometimes at the expense of actually experiencing the
world around us. Weve seen (and participated) for example as tourists filming and
photographing rather than looking and taking in the sights we often times paid
handsomely to see. And while these moments are captured for posterity can we say
that we truly remember being in these spaces, that we can remember what it sounded
and looked like when we stood still for a moment? This short film turns the camera
upward, towards the ceilings and atmospheres we seem so rarely to stop and admire as
we rush through our lives phones/cameras pointed outward. Anne Leighton Massoni,
is the Program Director of Photography at The University of the Arts in Philadelphia,
Pennsylvania. Massoni graduated with an MFA in Photography from Ohio University
and a BA in Photography and Anthropology from Connecticut College. Her work
relates to ideas of both real and fabricated memories, using a variety of film and digital
techniques.

Tofu Man - Documentary


Andrew Robb
Tofu Man is an unexpectedly candid portrait of Duc Nga, a former Vietnamese
refugee who came to Australia, seeking a better life after being orphaned at 14
years of age. Weaving Ducs story with his tofu making business makes for a film
of surprising poignancy. Receiver of Sunshine Film Festival, Melbourne 2013;

Decombres: A mobile bricolage poem for Duchamp - Experimental


Dean Keep
An old mobile phone becomes a wunderkammer, a techno jewel box brimming with
the artefacts of a lost past. Decombres mash up of text messages is used as a basis
for freeform prose, its verse randomly selected from the phones text messages
and layered over images in a game of poetic Russian roulette that favours bricolage
over narrative structure. This work remixes the mobile aesthetic to illicit the state of
drifting through places and spaces. In this floating world, words drip as the digital skin
of the mobile image reveals its pixilated flesh, revealing portals to other places and
long forgotten memories. Decombres is an experimental mobile film, it is the sum of
its parts, the debris from our interactions trapped within the heart of the machine.
Dean Keep is a lecturer in digital media at Swinburne University, Melbourne. Dean has
been actively researching mobile media, and producing mobile film and photography
since 2004. Dean has exhibited mobile film and photography in both national and
international forums.

DEAD TV - Experimental
Seth Keen
In this work I used an iPhone 4S to document over an extended period, abandoned
television sets on the side of the road. The portability and accessibility of a smartphone
in my pocket enabled me to record these dead TVs, as I saw them walking, riding
and driving in the inner north suburbs of Melbourne. In the edit I was interested in
replicating the rhythm of multi-touch screen actions used to select and delete photos
on a smartphone. Seth Keen teaches New Media at RMIT University in Melbourne,
Australia. He holds a MA (by Research) and is in the final stage of his practice
based PhD (Communication). Seth works with video to explore the nexus between
documentary practice and new media technologies. His practice is interdisciplinary
across media, art and design. He produces video works for exhibition, broadcast,
screening and online publication. Interested in social and environmental change, Seth
collaborates with organisations on the design of frameworks to create web interactive
documentaries.

Maria Donata Napoli
In 2012 we completed the Camino de Santiago, walking from Sarria to Santiago de
Compostela. This is, in short, the av-logbook of that part of the journey. Maria Donata
Napoli studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Catania, Italy. Since the beginning of
Nineties she is interested in video, photography and painting taking part in reviews,
personal and collective exhibitions in Italy and abroad. She studies the mass media
system and the music video field and teaches Teoria e metodo dei Mass Media at the
Academy of Fine Arts.

NYC - Travel Film

Joshua Faisandier
I used my phone (iPhone 5) to capture all the great moments and experiences. The
iPhone video performed well, however it didnt like the cold that much as it keep
turning itself off. I edited the video on Adobe Premiere Pro and used Illustrator for the
titles. I decided to put it in a 2.35:1 ratio because thats my favourite ratio for video, well
for film that is. I like the style of raw sound straight from the phone that is chopped and
cut up as it helps keep the memory real, instead of using music.

InTransit@NeedHelp? - Experimental
Gerda Cammaer
Short experiential video shot on iPad about the experience of being in transit when
travelling and how this affects our perception of time and space. Gerda Cammaer is
a film scholar, curator, and filmmaker with a particular interest for documentary and
experimental film. She has developed a special interest in the differences and similarities
between analogue and digital technologies. Her films have been shown at national and
international film festivals, and she gathered some awards and special mentions for her
work. Since 2007 she teaches film at the School of Image Arts of Ryerson University, in
Toronto. She is also a free-lance film programmer for art galleries or artist collectives.

David Hockney At the Met/ Large Interior, Los Angeles, 1988 - Experimental
David Scott Leibowitz
A short film by David Scott Leibowitz pays tribute to the most famous Mobile Digital
Artist, David Hockney and his Large Interior, Los Angeles, 1988 hanging at The
Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC. Shot using an iPhone 5S and the app Time
Piles, this tribute to Hockney plays to the Beatles With you and Without you. David
Scott Leibowitz brings over forty years of fascination with photography, video art, and
experimental filmmaking to his current position as a pioneer in the developing medium
of Digital Art. Mr. Leibowitz is part of a new generation of artists who are redefining
the boundaries of both fine arts and popular culture. Having come of age during the
information revolution, his work merges an appreciation for the plastic arts ( film, video
and photography), with an affinity for advanced computer technology.

Mobile Media Making in an Age of Smartphones


Edited by Marsha Berry, Max Schleser
ISBN: 9781137469816
Publisher: Palgrave Pivot
With the rise of smartphones and the proliferation of applications (apps),
the ways everyday media users and creative professionals represent,
experience, and share the everyday is changing. With the overlay of
location-based services, these experiences and representations are
providing new social, creative, and emotional cartographies.
This collection discusses the prospects of the proliferation of mobile and
digital filmmaking opportunities, from videographic citizen journalism to
networked, transmedia collaborative filmmaking and photography, and
the embedding of filmmaking and photography in social media practice.
The contributors reflect on emergent creative practices as well as digital
ethnographies of new visualities and socialities associated with smartphone
cameras in everyday life.
