Today we have access to a mega-powerful tool that can bring our ideas from text to the big screen in a matter of weeks. To go from a photo to a billboard. A group chats to a leading production team. A voice memo to a hit song. Today, everyone can be heard in high definition, seen in 4k, and shared on any Online Platform or Big Screen, thanks to an incredible technological advance called the smartphone. You wanna be part of the success stories? Then let me show you all the right tools to use today and how to use them to their maximum potential. Whether you are an aspiring filmmaker (short, feature, documentary), Vlogger, content provider or even business owner. Let me show you how easy it is to turn your smartphone from a simple communication tool to an intergalactic spacecraft that can transport your dreams into reality on the go. To be mobile. Film in Cinematic quality anywhere. Forget the office, you have a whole factory in your pocket.

I have been nominated over 20 times and have won 5 awards internationally, and I have been recognized by the ACS (Australian Cinematographer Society) for my skills in filmmaking. I have also been recognized by AFI and AACTA for being one of the leading filmmakers who has been using mobile technology to its full potential.

Blake is a very dedicated filmmaker, he has experimented a lot...and you can feel it because he's teaching is simple and clear. He's very prepared, ofcourse, but you know: many pro out there are also well "prepared".. you could go to cinema schools and find some teachers and they are probably prepared. NOW fact is Blake is not a normal teacher who is teaching you what he knows just because he's prepared to do that. Blake is an hyper-active and truly passionate filmmaker who's able to transfer enthusiasm together with notions..studying filmmaking with him has been more like diving into the deep waters of filmmaking and storytelling...not just fontal lesson on theory and technical stuff..he didn't fed students with tons of notions "do this, do that, shutter speed, iso, how to slo-mo, fps and blabla" ... we went out, hands on, we started to shoot...also people who never shot before. I got inspired to do more.. to go out and try and make mistakes and shoot and shoot more..believing in my vision, in my ideas.. so much that I started to get my sh..t done! After few months I started to get my first payed video-jobs too..now I don't want to say that this happened like magically after his course, of course you need to push yourself, but lemme say: if there is one person I owe my motivation to is absolutely Blake. He shared his knowledge with me, he inspired me to realize my own experience. Also after the course, he has been available for questions when I needed back-up on things I was not sure about..and this is really nice ((and in my experience not common at all ;)) Thumb up!!

Patient, Professional, Knowledgable, Personable & Clear is how I would explain my working with Blake. I had no experience using my phone to make movies. After working with Blake I’m getting ready to make my 1st film and it’s all because he gave me the confidence and the knowledge to be able to do so. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Blake.
