Padcaster Mini + iPad Mini = Maximum Awesome

If you’ve read my book, you know I LOVE my Padcaster.  With its aluminum frame, urethane insert, and oodles of accessory mounting options, the Padcaster is the most flexible and professional way to shoot video with a full-sized iPad.  My ONLY complaint with it is that it’s nearly impossible to shoot in a public space without at least 5 people coming over to ask about it — that’s especially true in Los Angeles. Now, Josh Apter, the mad genius behind the Padcaster want to bring that same level of awesome to the iPad Mini, and you can help make it happen.

The Padcaster Mini for iPad Mini is currently seeking backers on Kickstater.com. A pledge of $99 gets you one of the first units off the assembly line, but you’ll need to act fast!  There are only 4 days left to help fund the Padcaster Mini.  As of now, the campaign is short of its $30,000 goal, but I’m hoping word spreads quickly, and Josh sees a last-minute surge of support.

Assuming the Padcaster Mini is as well made as the Padcaster, I think $99 is a small price to pay.  It’s an ideal solution for any filmmaker who wants to shoot better video on their iPad Mini.

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!
