Attention screenwriters! It appears the industry standard screenwriting app is on it’s way to the Apple’s new iPad. And want to know the best news? They’re already looking for beta testers! Think you’ve got what it takes? Well then, grab your bug zapper and head on over to the Final Draft iPad Beta Signup page. Currently, there’s no indication of WHEN the beta will be launching. After I signed up, I got this simple message: Thanks for your interest in the Final Draft iPad application. You’ll hear back from us as soon as there’s more information on its availability.
If you haven’t already checked out the HHH Directory, Now would be a swell time! Why? Because we’ve just added another 20 apps and accessories, pushing the total to well over 200! That’s a whole lot of awesomeness! If you’re a Media Maker with an iPhone, iPod Touch, or other mobile device, go spend a few minutes poking around the Directory. We’re sure you’ll find some cool tools to improve your workflow. Have fun!
I wanted to take a moment to send my sponsors a great big bag of thanks. They are the reason the hard drives are spinning. Without them, I’d be sitting all alone in a dark room, mumbling to myself about the iphone… and that’s no fun.

I just found out that that my San Francisco SuperMeet presentation was named MacVideo’s Movie of the Week! That’s freakin’ awesome! If you weren’t able to come to the show, or you tried watching the messed-up live feed, here’s the whole presentation. Enjoy! In other news… I just got back from MacWorld. Not a particularly great show, but there were a few items worth discussing. I’m putting the videos together now. I’ll have ’em posted shortly. Check back soon!
Don’t forget, the San Francisco SuperMeet is this Friday. The main event begins at 7pm, but the Digital Showcase starts up at 3:30pm. The Showcase is a mini-expo, where product developers show off their latest gizmos. You can try stuff out, ask questions, and meet the developers. Need another reason to make the trip? HHH will have its very own table at the Showcase, and we’ve got some awesome iPhone developers joining us, including:
We got some great news today! Hand Held Hollywood has been asked to give a presentation at this year’s San Francisco SuperMeet! What’s a SuperMeet, you ask? It’s the reason you should hop in your car and get to the Mission Bay Conference Center on Friday, Feb 5th. I suppose you’ll be wanting a few more details. Alrighty then… SuperMeets are gatherings of Final Cut Studio, Adobe and Avid editors, gurus and digital filmmakers from throughout the world who use, or want to learn to use Macintosh-based workflows.
Start saving your pennies, boys and girls! It looks like we might be hearing about Apple’s long rumored Tablet in less than 10 days. According to Engadget, Apple is holding a press event on January 27th (at 10am) to show off their ‘latest creation.’ Has a very Willy Wonka feel, doesn’t it?
A while back, HHH published a collection of links to lists of iPhone Apps for Filmmakers. While each list contained some good info, none of them contained all the information out there. We received MANY emails suggesting that we create our own list, bringing all the apps together in one place. We loved the idea. But rather than creating just another list (albeit, a longer one), we chose to build a directory that will grow along with the hand-held industry. We wanted to create a unified catalog of iPhone apps and accessories, that could easily be expanded to include Apple’s
@GlenBMulcahy @FiLMiCPro @LumaTouch @KineMaster @AdobeVideo Surprising, indeed! I often try to decipher Apple’s reasoning for sharing certain apps and excluding others. ...and I’m still stumped. Perhaps they are intentionally leaning towards more casual users? Even then, there are some unexpected exclusions....
