'In the Heart of the Kaleidoscope' (2'25)

Music: Dark Bit Flow by Orlando Bay


The fifth edition MINA will present a public screening of smartphone, mobile and pocket films at RMIT University (19th Nov 2015) and on Fed TV at Federation Square (20th Nov 2015), Melbourne.


'Some mobile moving-image works are driven by aesthetic explorations using time-lapse, Kaleidoscopes or dioramas as inspiration. Messages are personal, intimate and immediate' Max Schlesen


'Another non-fiction approach is what I would describe as a type of ‘photographic videography’, with practitioners integrating the immediacy of a point-and-shoot device with the time-based potential of video.

(...) Experimental mobile filmmaking is another significant theme that is gravitating towards new media practices and technologies to explore new techniques and forms. There is a growing number of works that are beginning to move away from video editing and effects software on desktop computers to mobile apps. These works are being recorded and produced entirely on a smartphone' Seth Keen



'Now its fifth edition, the MINA International Mobile Innovation Screening is more diverse, colourful and provocative than ever before. Smartphone filmmaking has become a recognisable feature across the whole media landscape.

The MINA International Mobile Innovation Screening program features works from Australia, Aotearoa/ New Zealand, Germany, France, India, Iran, Japan and the Philippines.'

With my Selfy: 'Flying Eye'


"Ces praticiens détournent le geste initial, le selfie, via des cadrages atypiques, des mises en scène élaborées qui peuvent par exemple rompre avec l’instantanéité supposée du selfie, poursuit Sébastien Appiotti. La retouche avec les applications est un second temps de la création qui permet des usages créatifs et inventifs de l’image, faisant de ces autoportraits des œuvres à part entière, et posant la question d’une esthétique propre à ces œuvres mobiles."

Sébastien Appiotti, Huffington Post, 03/06/2015


Article du 03/06/2015 "PHOTOS. Ces 25 autoportraits pris avec des portables vont changer votre vision du selfie", Le Huffington Post, 


"Les quarante autoportraits que vous pourrez voir dans cette galerie parisienne et dans certains cinéma MK2 jusqu'à fin septembre en sont la preuve. Ils ont tous été pris avec des téléphones portables puis retouchés (ou non) avec des applications sur mobiles ou tablette. Et quand on les découvre pour la première fois, difficile de faire le lien avec le bon vieux selfie de salle de bain"
