From June 13 - 17, Apple will be holding its annual WorldWide Developers Conference. This conference gives Apple a chance to connect with software and hardware developers and demonstrate new features in its upcoming products.
What does that mean for us mere mortals? Oodles of new stuff!
While Apple tends to hold its cards close, the expected updates include a new Os X (possibly to be renamed “macOS”), a new iOS for iPhone/iPad, a new watchOS, and a new tvOS (for AppleTV). For Os X, the crystal ball says look for Siri to finally come to the Mac.
The hardware predictions are a little sketchier. ‘Maybe” a new MacBook Pro Retina, a new Mac Pro, and/or a new Mac Mini. A new Thunderbolt Display is an outside chance as well.
The people have spoken! They must have Gadget Class!
With all these devices being thrown at us, wouldn’t it be nice to have someone actually show us how to use them? Are we supposed to know this stuff by osmosis or what? (For that matter, nobody ever showed us how to do Taxes either, but that’s another story.)
The Kim Loo Sisters Documentary is still in the hunt for funding.
We recently made it into the finals for the Paley Center for Media DocPitch Competition.
Our producer Leslie Li will be pitching our documentary.
What is the DocPitch competition? According to their website: "How do you sell a documentary? Watch and learn as five preselected up-and-coming nonfiction filmmakers pitch their ideas before a live audience and a group of eminent documentarians. The panel of experts will evaluate the proposals for uniqueness and viability, as well as offering the emerging filmmaker helpful feedback. The winner will be awarded a $5,000 grant from A&E IndieFilms to be used toward the completion of the pitched film. The audience will learn valuable lessons in communicating ideas and will also get to cast its vote. Past winners of this contest, now in its eleventh year, include the acclaimed films The Age of Love, Circo, and Herman’s House."
