iPad at Work – on the Set of a Spielberg Movie


The director of the new sci-fi thriller I Am Number Four, D.J. Caruso, is just a tad impressed with the iPad:

"Well I think people who are making movies now, I can’t imagine they’re not doing it [using the iPad] because, I’ve got to tell you, I’ve got every previz thing on there, I have every storyboard on there, I have every script and every script note," he said. "I make my shot list on there and from that shot list I just send it… it’s become an amazing tool and I never would have thought it would have kicked in that fast. In fact, I talked to Steven, because I was sending him something from my iPad and he sent something back from his iPad and I thought, ‘Oh you got one!’ and he’s like, ‘Yeah.’ and I told him all these things I was using and he was like, ‘Which apps do you have?’ so here you are sending back which apps you have to Steven Spielberg. everyone’s starting to use it because it really is an amazing tool."

Sounds like the iPad has played a starring role in the production. Very cool to hear that Steven Spielberg appears to be a serious iPad user. Oh, and once again, how does that theory go about the iPad being all about consumption, not a device fit for creating anything on?

iPad at Work: on the Set of Transformers 3

iPad at work on Transformers set 

That famous movie-directing-guy, Michael Bay, uses his iPad 3G to help direct his cast. Have you heard of Transformers? Well Bay is apparently showing Patrick Dempsey how a certain scene is supposed to look in Transformers 3 …

Good to see the iPad getting used in more and different work settings, or sets in this case. :) Also sort of fun to see how the original MacRumors forum thread on this rapidly descended into some scathing criticism of Michael Bay – yikes. :)
