What makes something cinematic? Well, lots of stuff actually. Especially when shooting footage on a smartphone.

In this video we continue our Shortcuts series of short experimental films with Shortcuts_22 “Child’s Play” (shot + edited in one day) – but then we also breakdown the film and show how we made it. And along the way highlight elements of what we think makes something cinematic.
