We’ve had one heck of an amazing year in 2012!
And as the team sat around talking recently, we knew we wanted to do something equally amazing to give back.
After all, without the support from you, our readers, fans, attendees, and supporters, 2012 wouldn’t have been one of the most engaging and rewarding years of our lives.
So, to thank you properly – we’re tapping into the holiday season of giving.
We’re making all of our premium tutorials on SMAPP (our iPhone app) completely free – starting right now.
That’s right, all the tools, all the tutorials, have been made 100% free!
If you have the app installed, simply make sure you update it on your device. Or if you’ve yet to download it, well – there is no excuse now (getsmapp.com).
Note to Android users: We’re actively working on an Android version for you as we speak. Stay tuned, it’s coming!
If you purchased a few of the tutorials from us previously this year, we really appreciate your early support – and hope you’ve applied those lessons and benefited already from access. You’ve now got access to even more to help push your storytelling to new heights!
If you purchased a handful of tutorials recently on the app, over $20, please click here and fill out this quick form. We’d love to talk with you directly. (Unfortunately, Apple won’t give us your contact info, but it’ll be worth your time to fill out the quick form.)
Cheap Interview Lighting: Grab a few bucks and get resourceful!…
To celebrate two new updates to SMAPP, we’ve created a tutorial we’ve been wanting to shoot for a long time now (scroll up and click play).
Seriously, you should have seen Patrick when we gave him $26 and sent him to Home Depot – he was like a kid on Christmas morning! 😉
We wanted to show you that great interview lighting can be achieved on almost nothing (you can judge for yourself in our example).
This can really happen to you, too.
We’ve been on sets with our luggage delayed, inadequate resources (we weren’t given all the information correctly), or random wrenches thrown in our best pre-production plans (let’s say the location changes suddenly).
We work our butts off to make sure we minimize these major issues – but they still happen – all the time!
Resourcefulness (and a positive attitude) have saved us more times than we can count.
Once again, thank you for an amazing year – and I hope you enjoy the dozens of new tools and tutorials you have access to on SMAPP.
Let us know what you think!
