MacWorld ’11: Two New iPad Mounts from Monitors in Motion

We’re wrapping up our MacWorld 2011 coverage with a pair of iPad mounts from Monitors in Motion. They’re slick, silver, solid and sexy, and they’d both fit nicely in any professional environment. To provide an additional layer of security, the iPad Docking Station requires a key to remove the enclosed iPad — a nice touch for iPads that will be openly displayed and accessible (i.e. attached to a mobile production cart).

When I saw these mounts, I immediately pictured them in a post production suite, a recording studio, a voice-over booth and on my bedside nightstand.  That last one has very little to do with the entertainment industry, but I thought it was worth mentioning just in case anyone wants to buy me one for Christmas. Just thinking ahead.

Check out the video for a quick demo of both stands:

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!
