"Together, the iPhone Film Festival and Macworld/iWorld have provided a unique platform to celebrate the innovative filmmaking taking place on iPhones," said Ruben Kazantsev, co-creator of the iPhone Film Festival. "While Apple gave us the platform, it's the myriad of new apps, software and hardware tools that have given life to this evolving art form, and Macworld/iWorld is the place where it all comes together. Attendees should expect to be amazed by what the iPhone Film Festival winners have created and inspired to explore just what is possible using their own iPhone."

Highlights of the film events at Macworld/iWorld 2013 include:

The iPhone Film Festival

For the second year, Macworld/iWorld has teamed with Ruben Kazantsev and Renata Rinyu, co-founders of the successful iPhone Film Festival, to host filmmakers from around the world as they debut award-winning films and screen never-before-seen movies exclusively for Macworld/iWorld attendees. This year's line-up includes:

  • Announcement of the iPhone Film Festival 4 Grand Prize Winner and a chance to view footage from some of this year's top films, all shot using iPhone technology.

 

  • Premier of Departure, a collaborative film that represents an unchartered concept in filmmaking. From the mind of media trailblazer Ruben Kazanstev, Departure was shot in three separate countries—the United States, France and Belarus—by directors from those regions. Each filmmaker will contribute their assigned footage, shot exclusively on the iPhone, to form one complete, intertwining story that will debut at Macworld/iWorld. This is a first-of-its-kind venture in cost-effective, expeditious, epic filmmaking and a unique opportunity for Macworld/iWorld attendees to see, firsthand, the next generation of movie making.

The screening will be followed by a panel and Q&A during which attendees can hear from the directors—Christophe Nizou from France, Satie Gossett from the U.S. and Maria Kuracheva from Belarus—as well as writer Jimmy Borto, about the creative process behind iPhone filmmaking.

  • A screening of the music video for "Killing Time" by the band All the Pretty Cars, which was filmed, animated and mixed using only an iPhone 4, lots of construction paper and patience. Named "Best Music Video" at the 2012 iPhone Film Festival, the screening will be followed by a special live performance of the song by Gea Gamboa of The Cleopatra Complex.

All iPhone Film Festival events are included as part of the iFAN Pass Package.

Film Tech Talks

The Macworld/iWorld 2013 agenda boasts more than 60 new educational sessions, interactive panel discussions, practical "how-to" presentations and "tips and tricks" learning opportunities with several focused on movie making, including:

  • "Q&A with Fred Armisen." Best known as a punk rock drummer, cast member on Saturday Night Live, co-creator and co-star of IFC's Portlandia, Armisen is also a technophile. Listen in as he chats with Macworld Senior Editor Chris Breen about how he uses Apple technology to empower his creativity and identifies the products he can't live without.

 

  • "OUT THERE: Behind the Scenes of IFC's newest animated comedy." Hear from Emmy-winning Director and Producer Ryan Quincy and members of his creative team as they share the creative and technical secrets behind how their new animated series, OUT THERE, evolved from a kernel of an idea into a full 10-episode season. OUT THERE follows the coming-of-age adventures of Chad, his little brother Jay and best friend Chris. The show staff will share video outtakes and clips from the yet-to-air premier episode, as well as discuss their behind-the-scenes creative process followed by live audience Q&A.

 

  • "The Studio in Your Pocket," a workshop with Michael Koerbel and Anna Elizabeth James, iPhone filmmakers at Majek Pictures, will explore the latest video, photography and audio apps for both iPhone and iPad.

 

  • "Life, Camera, Action: Ideas, innovation and images on the go. How mobile image capture is altering how we interact with the world," a special brown bag lunch sponsored by FiLMiC Pr with filmmakers Neill Barham and Michael Koerbel and cinematographer Jonathan Houser.

Fresh off a tall ship cruise in the Caribbean, Barham, Koerbel and Houser will take attendees on a mystical journey through the Windward Islands on a tour de force demonstration of mobile media apps in action. The sheer power of high-definition mobile capture is transforming not just the travel industry, but more importantly the very nature of travel itself and the way we engage, understand and share the world. In this spirited and evocative session, the FiLMiC mobile misfits will share stories of their adventures from the Caribbean and earlier mobile trips to the Mediterranean and the Baltic Sea. Detailing the progression in video capabilities from the early iPhone 4 days, on up to the 4S, the 5 and the new iPad, as well as what each hardware iteration has brought to the table, this session will be replete with delicious, real-world exotic travel video and documentary footage. Additionally, hear stories and anecdotes about all sorts of gear road tested under aggressive travel conditions, and get an insider's view of the winners and the losers in the accessories market, and hear battled-tested advice on what to buy and what to avoid.

"Apple technology has played a central role in much of my creative life—whether it's editing Portlandia episodes on my iPad or playing Steve Jobs on SNL—so I'm especially excited to come to Macworld/iWorld to share my experiences with fellow iFans, delve into how I use these tools to bring my vision to life, and offer some tips on the products that help propel my work," said Fred Armisen. "I promise you'll learn something and maybe even leave with a few laughs."

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
