Is this the Filmmaker’s Android?


It’s not often we get to excitedly report on anything Android-ish, but that’s about to change. Early this morning, Engadget posted the specs of a forthcoming LG smart phone.  It’s part of LG’s Android Optimus line, and it looks mighty filmmaker friendly.

In addition to a 4″ screen and a dual-core Tegra 2 chip, this puppy sports an eight megapixel camera capable of shooting 1080p HD video. Apple’s current offerings top out at 720p. While there’s no doubt that Apple will eventually release a 1080p capable iPhone, it probably won’t be for some time.

Naturally, all this means nada unless some good Android apps hit the market.  We’ll let you know when they do.

Cruise over to Engadget.com for all the details.

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!
