Jed Brophy is an Honorary Ambassador for the IMFF, where all films are shot with smartphone cameras, and has been a recurring judge in the short film competition. Episode 145 is a bit of a first bringing you a part of our in-person film festival with Jed's presentation.
Since 2020, Jed has been trying to make his way to our film festival in San Diego. Of course, we all know what happened in 2020 but Jed had been busy working on The Rings Of Power which premiered on Amazon Prime last year.
Jed shared his backstory on how he started acting and his beginnings working with Peter Jackson. He also spoke about mobile filmmaking.
I met Jed Brophy and Mark Hadlow in 2018 when Rich Vizor contacted me about their film, Blue Moon. Blue Moon was a feature film shot with an iPhone 7 in New Zealand.
Jed’s presentation was energetic, enthusiastic and truly inspiring. We’re grateful to Jed for making out this year and wish him the very best with all his projects.
