Bootlegger is a revolutionary new tool for participating in film shoots, developed initially for shooting live event videos using mobile phones. Musicians, fans and spectators can connect using Bootlegger to produce high-quality multi-camera films of events. Bootlegger acts as director and producer, coordinating camera operators, suggesting shots and collecting footage.

Contributors can easily edit everyone's video together and share on social media.

Bootlegger has been expanded to support any type of film shoot, with both real-time and shoot-when-you-want direction.

During a shoot, Bootlegger allocates shots according to where you are. Fans at the front might be asked to grab close-ups while those at the back are given wide shots. For consistency, example compositions are shown as overlays on the screen. To keep things interesting, Bootlegger suggests different shots and compositions guaranteeing great coverage. Operators are automatically set to ‘go live’ by the app and warned if another phone can’t get a shot, meaning no gaps.

Any number of phones can be used for a single shoot. Shows can be private, with an invited team or made public so any audience member with a phone can take part.

After the show Bootlegger uploads videos to the cloud automatically and securely, enabling event organizers to keep control of their live content.
