Cassius Rayner – Meet and greet the prof!
I am Cassius Rayner and started professionally as a camera operator in 1995, directed my first short drama in 1997 starring pop icon Adam Ant. During this time I worked on documentaries, music videos, news and drama. In addition to this I spent time overseas as a camera operator for UNOPS (United Nations) based in various places. Since 2014 I stopped using main stream cameras and turned my attention to the possibilities of mobile phones. For the last 7 years I have only filmed professional content using a mobile phone and the filmic pro app. Filming documentaries in South America, Africa, Hong Kong and Europe. Ive worked in fashion, brand content projects in the USA, and was very fortunate to also spend time with volunteer medical teams in countries where it is difficult to film and so using mobiles was key in the production of the stories. My website

Twenty young content creators were immersed in the world of smartphone videography. Or also: young people, supported by a series of workshops, make a (short) film with a smartphone. The final winner was chosen by a jury including the well-known director duo Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah.
