Shang-Chi Director Directed From His iPhone

I enjoyed reading this brief ScreenRant story, so I thought I’d share it here. It describes how Destin Daniel Cretton, the director of Marvel’s Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings, was forced to direct an important scene via his iPhone while in the hospital for the birth of his child! Sadly, it doesn’t divulge the details of that unusual workflow, but it’s an excellent reminder that we’re all toting the world’s most versatile piece of filmmaking gear in our pockets and purses!

  1. Interesting. A bit thin, but still neat to see what his move into using the iPad was like.

    On the other hand, there was one tidbit that made me think "potential HHH interview":

    "also spoke of the bizarre experience of trading app recommendations with Stephen Spielberg"

    Can’t wait to read that one…
