Here we are on Sunday, looking back on the fact that the last JumperCut goes to SXSW blog entry we put in was about last Monday, and it’s obvious that SXSW became e blur… a blur of music, films, sessions, parties and nonstop interesting conversations.

Moviemaking has always been a collaborative process, and the need for creative production of light and sound aren’t going anywhere, but the capabilities of iPhone cameras are improving phenomenally with each new version. As now we know, some filmmakers have dabbled with creating movies just with their phones and tablets, and mobile film festivals are popping up everywhere.
