How an iPhone App Made An Oscar-Nominated Film Possible

How an iPhone App Made An Oscar-Nominated Film Possible | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

Emily Price:  "The film Searching For Sugar Man is nominated for Best Documentary at this year’s Academy Awards. But it might have not been completed if it wasn’t for an iPhone."

Love this story of a DIY approach to storytelling. And lo and behold it was heard and received by the Academy! Go indie media go!

Zan Chandler's curator insight, February 25, 2013 10:05 PM

And it actually won the Oscar!

 

While the amount of footage the filmmaker needed to make with his iPhone was small in terms of the overall, I think this sends a number of signals. 1 -  consumer tech is getting closer and closer to industry standards and used in the right way can be effective; and 2 - this is another example of compelling content created with a DIY ethic.

 

I look forward to seeing more examples of where filmmaking can evolve.

Jan van Gils's curator insight, March 9, 2013 10:10 AM

A very nice film and made with a little effort. Thats fine to me.

5 Top iPad Photo-Editing Apps

5 Top iPad Photo-Editing Apps | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

Who says the iPad wasn't meant for creation? Sure, you can't exactly run Final Cut Pro or Adobe InDesign on Apple's tablet (nor would you really want to), but the device has come a long way since 2010. One category of apps that demonstrates the iPad's creative prowess is its growing selection of photo-editing software.

The App: The Book of the Future?

The App: The Book of the Future? | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

Two summers ago when I attended the Yale Publishing Course in 2011, I heard Nicolas Callaway of Callaway Digital Arts give a presentation called “The Kids Are All Right.” In it, he foretold the future of the book, claiming that not too long from now, we wouldn’t be reading books but instead using apps.

 

This issue of Independent Publisher follows on the heels of Digital Book World 2013, where hundreds of publishing professionals meet to discuss “developing, building and transforming their organization to compete in the new digital publishing environment.” We’ve known for years that ebooks are an unavoidable part of the business, but now we need to start taking a good hard look at apps ...

Lots of very interesting comments, the trends gated by acceptance, and use within the educational community and the " permission" or purchases within the schools.
Laura Starace's comment, June 3, 2013 3:22 AM
I am also surprised 15% have no interests in using whiteboards though, not all schools have the chance or "permission" as already mentioned to use it or implement it

Serendipity - What is it?

Serendipity - What is it? | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

Serendipity means a "happy accident" or "pleasant surprise"; specifically, the accident of finding something good or useful while not specifically searching for it.

 

The word has been voted one of the ten English words hardest to translate in June 2004 by a British translation company.[1] However, due to its sociological use, the word has been exported into many other languages.[2]
