App Store “Stories” are promoting interesting apps for filmmakers

Is it just me or has the App Store been especially friendly to filmmakers lately? Recently, Apple has published a bunch of Stories (their name for a collection of related apps) that feature exciting and semi-useful apps for mobile media makers. Here’s a quick sampling: “Shoot it Short and Funky” features 7 unique video camera apps. “Start a Summer Video Project” contains 9 apps for shooting & post-work. “Apps for Stage Actors” (also applies to film actors) has 10 excellent tools for a script reading, rehearsing, annotating, and blocking.

O.P.N. for APRIL 11th, 2019

Welcome to another edition of Other People’s News. Here are a few of the more interesting info-nuggets I’ve recently spotted around the web-o-sphere: 9to5 Mac covers a few of the biggest announcements from this year’s NAB conference, including FiLMiC Pro’s new companion app, FiLMiC Audio. This new app turns your old iOS devices (like that old iPhone 6 sitting in your closet) into wireless microphones! The article also covers FiLMiC Pro’s support for the Movi gimbal, as well as new updates from LumaFusion and Gnarbox. Read it here: https://9to5mac.com/2019/04/10/nab-2019-mobile-video-editing-lumafusion-2-0-filmic-pro-gnarbox/.  For extra credit, here’s NoFilmSchool.com’s video of the FiLMiC updates in action: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2_pyIYxUocQ

Apps & Accessories from my MojoFest Presentation

Thanks to everyone who came out for this year’s MojoFest in Galway, Ireland. It was an incredible event overflowing with talented, creative and friendly people from around the globe. I know I tend to speak quickly while on stage (there’s a lot to cover!), so I thought I’d share a short list of the apps and accessories I mentioned during my presentation. Several of these links are for iPhone/iPad versions of apps, however many of the apps are also available in the Google Play store for Android. It’s worth a search if that’s your platform of choice!

Apple Highlights Filmmaking Apps

The iOS App Store’s “Today Tab” just got a lot more interesting! Apple has highlighted a small collection of high-quality apps for iPhone and iPad owning filmmakers. The feature called “Pro Tip: From Script to Screen” lists four apps for preproduction, five for use on set, and another four for postproduction. While it’s a good list, it’s far from complete. Take a look in our APP DIRECTORY for a more comprehensive collection. Here are all of the apps listed in Apple’s feature. Preproduction On Set Postproduction

SCRIVENER FINALLY HITS THE IPAD & iPHONE! BEST DAY EVER!

Today is a BIG day! Scrivener, one of the greatest writing applications ever created, is finally available for the iPad & iPhone! I wrote my book, Filmmaking with the iPad & iPhone, along with a few screenplays in the Mac version of this incredible app. I’m VERY excited to see it finally launch on iOS! In a nutshell, Scrivener is an immersive writing environment with an extensive toolbox. You can easily collect and organize research as you work your way through your manuscript or screenplay. You can view, structure, re-structure, and output your content in a wide variety of formats.  While I don’t necessarily think it’s the best screenwriting app
