If you haven't already heard, 'The Wolfpack,' won the Grand Jury Prize in its category at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, and has been steadily gaining buzz ever since. Documentarian Crystal Moselle profiles a group of brothers who were raised almost entirely isolated from society in an apartment on the Lower East Side of Manhattan.

Q&A with Josh Apter, Creator of The Padcaster
PADCASTER PRODUCT TOUR from Manhattan Edit Workshop on Vimeo.Q: So, what exactly is The Padcaster? A: The Padcaster is a rugged iPad case turned mobile production studio that transforms your Apple tablet into an all-in-one moviemaking machine. This sturdy, customizable case lets videographers attach lights, mics and other filmmaking accessories and enhancements to the iPad. Paired with the Lenscaster, the combo takes the iPad from ordinary tablet to high-tech production device. Q: How did you come up with the idea for such a product? Was there an exact moment when the lightbulb went on and you thought of creating this device? A: When I saw that you could shoot HD video, edit it and upload it to almost anywhere (YouTube, Vimeo, CNN ireport, FTP) all on the iPad. It was faster than anything I’d ever seen and something literally clicked. It turned out to be a hernia, but while I was in surgery, I got the idea for the Padcaster. (OK, not that last part.)

How To Get The Perfect Aerial Shot
by Danny Groner, ShutterstockSetting the scene for any video can be tricky. You need to orient the viewer to what they’re about to see, and you’ve got to do it quickly or run the risk of creating an unwanted distraction at the top of your production. Many TV shows open up with a series of punchy establishing shots, first of a cityscape, then of a building within it, then the office within the building. It happens quickly, within a matter of seconds, but it leaves viewers with the background they need before buying into the dialogue and action that follows. The initial aerial shots shouldn’t be taken for granted, though, as they can deliver much more than just a beautiful view of a city. When choosing a clip for the city at hand, consider also the tone and feeling of the clip and the way it was shot. For a busy, office setting scene, open with a faster, more frantic, and tighter city shot - even consider time-lapse. If introducing a more lighthearted scene, let the opening aerial footage clip breathe for longer and go wider to really showcase the panorama. Make sure that the aerial footage lines up with the sentiment of the scene that follows-it really influences your audience’s mind-set going into what comes next. Here are some powerful, atmospheric aerial shots from around the world:

The system allows you to keep an eye on your home from via your smartphone. It’s a crowded market, so we had to find a way to portray the unique features of the product in a family-friendly manner. Let’s look at some of the pre-production and production challenges I encountered.
