AppAdvice.com has just posted a story about a new mini iPhone tripod-ish mount called the Tiltpod. Here’s the short version: It’s a key-chain ready, mini mount that uses a magnetic quick-release. Looks like it’s best used on fairly flat surfaces. And, since the developer has temporarily lowered the funding price, it can be yours for 10 smackers.
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!
