Mobile Media: Producing Visual Stories With Your iPhone

Your iPhone is able to shoot amazing high definition video, act as a basic editing suite, apply professional-looking finishes and then instantly distribute the material around the globe. Communication professionals, from journalists to social media acolytes, are now ditching bulky video kits to rely on Apple’s pocket rocket. The question, though, is how to overcome its inherent limitations and transform it into the ultimate ally.
