Panoptik’s Timecode Calculator (Giveaway!)

During post production of my new short, 2084, I had to manage a LOT of visual effects.  Every shot in the film consisted of multiple rendered layers.  This often led to some fairly complex timecode calculations. Thankfully, I own a powerful timecode calculator app called, appropriately enough, Timecode ($6.99)!  If you’re not already familiar with Timecode, it’s an easy to use iPhone app for quickly and precisely performing timecode and film unit calculations.  In addition to calculating, it can also perform lighting-fast conversions.  Panoptik, the app’s developer, has just released a brand new version, bringing with it a beautifully revamped interface.

To celebrate 2084’s upcoming release (this Thursday), I’m giving away Timecode to FOUR randomly-chosen HHH newsletter subscribers!  To enter, simply subscribe to the HHH newsletter by this Friday at 11:59pm PST.  All new subscribers also get a free chapter from my book… so, neat!  If you’re already subscribed, then you’re already entered. The sign-up form is in the sidebar to the left (or below if you’re on an iPhone).

There are plenty of other timecode apps in the App Store, but in my opinion, Panoptik’s Timecode has always led the way.  So, if you’re the type of person who calculates timecode, feet or frames, I suggest you grab Timecode, your new best friend.

Developer: Panoptik
Price: $12.99

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!
