Apple's movie influence
The Coen brothers -- the creators of 'No Country for Old Men' which won five Oscars at this year's Academy Awards -- have discussed how Apple hardware and software were influential during the editing process of the film's creation. "They [Apple] made it really easy for us — we cut now much the same way we cut on film [using Final Cut Pro]. It's hugely faster," said Ethan Coen. 'No Country for Old Men' won 'Best Picture' this year and is the first movie edited with an entirely digital workflow on a Mac to win the Oscar, according to Macworld.
The duo is also in the process of editing 'Burn After Reading' starring Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Tilda Swinton, and Frances McDormand in Final Cut Pro 6.0.
