PocketLD turns 2

Is that a lighting director in your pocket or are you just happy to key me? Thank you! Thank you! Try the veal! Tip your waitress! Goodnight!

With the world’s greatest joke out of the way, I’m happy to tell you that version 2.0 of Zinman Software’s PocketLD has just hit the app store. In a nutshell, this app helps lighting pros calculate FC/LUX and Beam/Field diameters for a ton of fixtures and lamps.  And if you understood that last sentence, I bow to your wisdom.

Version 2 adds a bunch of new features, including the ability to edit the library, create new fixtures, and organize fixtures in a favorites list.

So, if you light for a living, you should check out this upgrade pronto.

This app has been removed from the App Store

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!
