One such example of this is currently up over at Apple's Final Cut Pro site. There, as we previously noted, director David Fincher, of Fight Club, Se7en and Alien 3 fame, explains how he used Final Cut Pro to edit his most recent film Zodiac. It's an interesting glimpse into the technology of post-production as well as into Fincher's creative process. With Zodiac, Fincher shot the film digitally using the Viper cam and then it was edited with Final Cut Studio -- a camera system that's only been around for a few years and software you can buy today and use at home on your own Mac. Pretty cool.
Yes, I realize the video is completely pro-Apple but what can I tell you -- it's Apple's website. Still, with all the pro-Apple spin, the video is pretty informative and makes you think about the current state of filmmaking technology and how it benefits and enhances a filmmaker's creativity. Really, do you expect them to tell you how great it is to edit feature films using Windows Movie Maker or some other system like AVID? I don't think so. Enjoy the video.
