Are you uploading files via your webapp or do you have a mobile client
initiating the upload?
Usually I have seen people following this process:
1. Front end or app asynchronously uploads data to S3.
2. Send URL back to your backend.

If your use case dictates that you go the flask route, you might want to
look at boto python library.
