Mike Koerbel ’00 has made history by producing the first short film entirely shot and edited using Apple’s new iPhone 4 and the iMovie application. The video, nearly 90 seconds long, was posted online on June 24. It has since gone viral and received more than 500,000 plays! Watch the video posted below to see both the feature and behind-the-scenes footage about how the film was made.
After graduating with a broadcasting and multimedia technology degree, Mike produced creative multimedia projects as a member of Cedarville’s Production Services Group. He directed re:View, a worldview teaching tool designed for high school students. The curriculum features award-winning short films and teaching segments that help young adults discern culture and engage their world for Christ.
Mike is completing a graduate degree from the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts. He and his co-writer launched a production company, Majek Pictures, and have a 3iD project scheduled for filming this fall.
