Tech – Tangerine

Mike Figgis Digital Fimmaking

Now there is no reason to prevent anybody from making a film. The technology exists, the equipment is much cheaper than it was, the post-production facilities are on a laptop computer, the entire equipment to make a film can go in a couple of cases and be carried as hand luggage on a plane. –Mike Figgis

When you buy a Mac, it automatically comes with iMovie ….My experience with iMovie was interesting. I had it on my computer and I never used it. Then, one day, I shot something that I didn’t really want anybody else to cut at that stage. I just wanted to look at it. And I had no idea how to use the iMovie system. I am not someone who could be described as computer literate. I don’t love computers. I have been dragged to them reluctantly, and have then been delighted by what they can do, but I had some difficulty in learning the systems initially. So I would say I represent the low end of capability here. Compared to anyone under thirty, who will have had far more experience with computers than I have ever had, I’m in the Stone Age. So I turned the system on and there was a little demo reel that came with it just to help one through the process. I found out how to plug in my camera so that I could use the camera as a playback machine and as an importing machine. That seemed very straightforward. Then I started importing some shots, and I saw very quickly how they aligned themselves into a sort of catalogue. Within a couple of hours I’d cut a sequence. I started to think about how I could do a little sound dissolve here, and I went into the menu that said what was available in terms of effects for sound and effects for visuals. And it was so obvious and so self-explanatory, even to a novice like me, that I cut a really rather sophisticated five-minute film. Starting from zero, I did it in one day. And I immediately thought I could cut a whole feature like this.
