In today's production world, most filmmakers have in their possession a simple tool that's revolutionizing the industry. Ipads, iPhones, droids, and other smart phones and tablets have become hand-held production toolboxes, with applications that improve workflow for all departments across all phases of production. In this seminar, top production apps will be introduced and demoed. Attendees will be encouraged to bring their devices and download apps before or during the workshop to demo them, or download once they see them in action. (Some of the apps are free and some are pay.)
