Index Card for iPad gets reviewed

Cult of Mac just published a very nice review of Index Card, an iPad app designed to virtualize the index card method of script development.

Very often, writers will put every scene and idea on a separate note card, and then shuffle the cards around a cork board in order to find the most effective order.  Naturally, there’s a lot more too it than that, but you get the idea.  This technique has been around a long time, and is still widely used today.  For those that like modern parlance, consider it mind-mapping for screenwriters.

There’s a LOT of mind-mapping apps in the App Store, but so far, only Index Card offers the ability to export your organized cards as an RTF for importing into Final Draft (the de facto standard for desktop screenwriting software). This feature alone puts it WAY ahead of the pack.

The app was not found in the store. :-(

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!
