About the 9/16 Vertical Feature Film: This increasingly popular format is the one used on smartphones and tablets, and therefore valued by news channels, and other platforms such as Netflix and YouTube. Although the smartphone is usually used for this type of format, it is possible to work with conventional professional tools. It is also an opportunity for professional filmmakers to experiment with new narrative styles.
