Meet the Mac Innovators

5:00 - 6:00 PM

Apple Developer Connection Reception

6:00 - 7:00 PM
Located on the Mezzanine Level

Reception sponsored by:

Tales from the Crypt (a.k.a. Unit 227 at Uncle Bob's Self-Stor)

7:00 - 8:30 PM
Located in the Santa Clara Ballroom

In his own version of technological archaeology, Andy Ihnatko will offer a glimpse at unique examples of creative genius from the past. He'll then turn his sights to the future and look at collaboration technologies that are flowing our way. Because as we all know, business health requires that you always drink upstream from the herd. This evening session will make you laugh, make you cry, and doggone it, it'll make you think. Much like an Oprah's Book Club selection, except you don't have to pretend to read anything..

Real-Time Filmmaking on Mac OS X

Sean Fitzroy, Filmmaker, The New England Institute of Art
7:30 - 8:30 PM
Located in the Santa Clara Ballroom

Sean Fitzroy and Vikki Merriman, winners of the 2003 Boston 48 Hour Film Project competition, explain the role of Mac OS X and Apple software and hardware in making an award-winning short film in just 48 hours.

The presentation will begin with a viewing of Pie in the Sky, an 8-minute long mockumentary short about a dot-com that tries to start an automated online pizza delivery service. The filmmakers will discuss the media management and work flow techniques that enabled collaboration between multiple editors and compositors, a composer, and a sound recordist that needed to quickly manipulate and exchange and work with large audio and video files.

Learn about the technologies that enabled the filmmakers to log and capture on the set, collaboratively edit the film and create animations on three networked laptops, record music directly into Final Cut Pro in real time, and even create a "mobile unit" so that the film could be output to tape in the car on the way to the drop-off point. The Mac OS X voice "Bruce" even has a supporting role!
