In a new feature published by Apple on Wednesday, Hollywood director Barry Jenkins goes deep into how he embraced technology as a Mac to help create movies after starting out in a traditional movie background.
Oscar-winning director Barry Jenkins embraces Apple's ecosystem to help produce his feature films, including his MacBook Pro and iPad.
As he began to cut film by hand at college, Jenkins soon moved to modern techniques such as non-linear digital movie editing, the Apple exhibition reads. Now, when working on a movie, he not only trusts an ARRI Alexa camera, but also a MacBook Pro and a new iPad Pro to get the job done.
"These ARRI cameras and the Apple platform are the two things that have helped me become who I am," says Jenkins.
To edit, Jenkins and his co-author Joi McMillon used Avid Media Composer to take with everything on their workstation Mac Pro

Jenkins films are currently adapting James Baldwin's "If Beale Street Could Talk" and will soon jump to an Amazon-limited series based on Coulson Whitehead's "The Underground Railroad."
Jenkins Wonder over how easy it e r for the younger generation filmmakers to produce good content.
"You can simply do some awful things right now, either with the phone or with a DSLR," says Jenkins. "The world is a young filmmaker's oyster."
Apple may think alongside Jenkins again. In November, reports claim that the technology giant is collaborating with A24, the studio behind "Moonlight", to produce content that is likely destined for a video streaming service rumored to launch in April.
