MEWShop Owner Josh Apter Interviewed on Forbes.com about the Padcaster!
Say hello to the future of filmmaking — on an iPad or smartphone. A small bootstrapped startup is now selling an aluminum and urethane contraption on the Apple Store that can turn any iPad into a movie-making machine.
Since DSLR cameras start at $500 (for a very basic kit) and lenses alone can run upwards of $10,000, filmmaking can be an expensive hobby. That’s why Josh Apter, a filmmaker and founder of the Manhattan Edit Workshop, created the Padcaster. “I literally took my iPad to a framing store and had it framed like a picture,” he says.
