Yet another house move.

So that’s it all over bar the shouting, reformating, renaming and removal of duplicates. My Tumblr, Blogger and Posterous accounts are all imported and accounted for and I just need to find a way to upload photos to Flickr & WordPress simultaneously.

Once I’ve cancelled my now-redundant invoicing subscription I may even pay WordPress their monies to host my domain.  $18 a year will hardly break the bank…

Mr Byrne has previous experience of this and his recent tweet struck a chord with me.

Producing music and video on a smartphone has been bothering me for a fair while now. There are some quality pieces of work produced either partly or mainly on phone handsets, but the video below reinforces for me that the medium is most definitely the message in work like this. The extra attachments, processing time, additional apps, compromises, etc., all seem say that making the art on a smartphone is as important as the art itself.

What this says about the artist I don’t know. What I do know is that less technical effort and expense is required while using slightly more dedicated equipment. 

Are there boundaries, limitations imposed by the phone that inspires truly satisfying envelope-pushing? Can the fixed-focus lens lead to breakthroughs in storytelling, scripting or directing?

Or is it part of the techie trend, reinventing a wheel simply to be seen to have a wheel?

From filming through to special effects, smartphone technology offers all the elements required to make a movie. But will the finished product really be good enough for your local cinema?

Here, we show you how the film was made, give you tips on how to make your own masterpiece and tell you what apps and accessories you might need.

A Map of the World.

I’ve been going through my email holding tank where I send interesting things for sending to my friends or writing a little bit about and posting here.
Typically I get a bit behind, so rather than having these gathering dust, I’m putting them on in one place for you, dear reader, to poke through.

Timeline: Eta campaign
‘Tuned’ images from water mission
Google faces competition inquiry
Small dogs may originate from the Middle East, geneticists say
GPS vulnerable to hacker attacks
Death Star
Stunning – Biblical Weapons
Web Security: Are You Part Of The Problem?
UFO investigations unit closed by Ministry of Defence
In pictures – Stalin’s Rude Etchings
Smart hominids
