On this week’s Mac Power Users podcast, they interviewed comedian, writer, actor, and director David Wain. You may know of him from The State, MADtv, Role Models, Children’s Hospital, or his upcoming movie starring Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd, Wanderlust. In the podcast, David describes his workflow for making a movie and the tools he uses along the way. One of those tools is Pear Note.
In the interview, he talks about using Pear Note for notes sessions on readings of the script as well as screenings with producers and studio personnel. He also talks about using Pear Note to keep track of what parts get laughs during early screenings. The whole interview is great (Pear Note’s part happens just after the 22 minute mark).
I love hearing different ways Pear Note is used, and I’m glad to hear it’s so helpful in movie making. I have to say, when I set out to make a note-taking tool, I was picturing classrooms and conference rooms. I never would have dreamed it would be used to help make a major motion picture.
