Just as the way we consume movies has changed in recent years with the advances in smartphone and tablet technologies, the way filmmakers make films has changed as well. In this day and age, companies are developing software and hardware to make life on-set easier for those wielding cameras. With that in mind, the folks at Microsoft have produced an online documentary series about how filmmakers are utilizing their technology in creating art.
The first episode profiles filmmaker Chayse Irvin. Chayse’s recent films include the documentary Spirit in the Stone and Blacktino, a feature film that premiered at SXSW. The episode follows Chayse to various spots in New York City, where he talks about the capabilities of his Surface Pro to capture content for both creative and commercial projects.
You can check out the second episode of Surface Pro: Behind the Scenes featuring Superjail! creator Christy Karacas on juxtapose.com. And keep an eye out for the third installment, featuring Marc Kushner on Architizer.com on 9/30.
