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

O.P.N. FOR DECEMBER 2ND, 2013

Welcome to another edition of Other People’s News. What follows are some of the more interesting info-nuggets I’ve recently spotted around the web-o-sphere. On his VJ Technology Blog, Glen Mulcahy offered up a super handy cheat sheet of iMovie gestures. He also discusses what I believe is the app’s best new feature: the ability to detach audio from existing video clips. Glen also recently published a very nice report on using radio mics (lavs, handhelds, etc.) with an iPhone. iMore took a look at the recent olloclip update. The new version offers an additional macro lens, and more. If you’ve

MacWorld / iWorld 2013: Jot Touch pressure sensitive stylus

If you’ve read my book, you know I’m a fan of the Jot stylus. It’s a great tool when storyboarding on the iPad. Rather than using the typical rubber nub, the Jot utilizes a clever clear disc that freely pivots on a tiny ball. I’d love to add a tiny-ball joke here, but I don’t have time. Now, Adonit (Jot’s developer) has upped the ante with the Jot Touch, a Bluetooth pressure sensitive stylus that kicks mountains of ass. I sat in the Adonit booth for 20 minutes, playing with the Jot Touch, and I can say with certainty that this thing

SketchPad Pro Just Landed on KickStarter!

We first covered SketchPad Pro, the awesome looking storyboard app from Tikibone, in October of 2010. Back then, we reported it was coming soon. Now, we’re happy to tell you that it’s almost soon! But, before SketchPad Pro hits the App Store, Tikibone needs your help. To that end, the app now has its very own Kickstarter campaign! If you’re a storyboard artist (or aspiring to be one), and have been waiting for this puppy to be released, please consider helping Roger and Scott raise the money needed to finish development, and secure publishing.

Nomad Brush lets pre-vis artists ‘PAINT’ on their iPad

Here’s another cool-as-hell iPad accessory I found at iWorld. The Nomad Brush is an iPad stylus that looks AND FEELS like a traditional paintbrush. Perfect for tablet toting previsualization artists who come from a painting background. I imagine it would be a terrific partner for painting apps like SketchBook Pro.

Storyboard Composer HD Arrives for the iPad (and it’s on sale)!

I’ve said it more than once. Storyboard Composer is the reason Hand Held Hollywood was built. Using Storyboard Composer on my iPhone was such a mind-blowing experience, that I wanted to share it with people around the world…and that’s when I decided to create this site.  On a side note, I later learned I was the first person to buy the app in the AppStore — a distinction I’m most proud of. But, that was two years ago.  Since then, the world was introduced to the iPad (and the iPad 2) — a perfect platform for a revised version of

A great big bag of news!

A lot of cool stuff happened over the past few weeks. I was working long hours, and didn’t have the chance to post about it… until now!  So, here’s some stuff I missed, that you may have missed too. Stu Maschwitz (of ProLost) posted a great article describing how he uses an iPad app called Penultimate, along with custom designed ‘paper’ templates, to sketch out storyboards. Not only does he describe his process, but he also gives away all the templates you’ll need to get started! I’ve been using this app since it was first released over a year ago, and
