Welcome to CNET Australia's new guide to pocket film-making. The Pocket Filmmaker will be showing you how to turn the smartphone in your pocket into a camera capable of shooting video projects that are worthy of sharing with family and friends, online and even with the judges of some of Australia's biggest short-film festivals.

In this episode, we look at the best and cheapest ways to stabilise your shots, exploring a range of the ingenious tripods that are designed specifically for pocketable devices.

The first episode in the series looked at some great lens attachments that can seriously improve the shots you take with your phone. If you missed it, you can find it here.

Jason Van Genderen was the winner of several short film-making awards at festivals including Tropfest NY, Tropfest Sydney and Aspen Shortsfest, and he has even won an IF Award. Jason's projects have been shot on the Nokia N95, Nokia N8 and Apple's iPhone. He recently took home first prize in the Telstra Mobile Masterpieces category at Tropfest Sydney for his film The 53rd Hour.
