Description

Cirina Catania, OWC RADiO host, talks with Neill Barham, CEO, and the guiding vision behind FiLMiC Inc. and the primary architect behind FiLMiC Pro.



An independent filmmaker from Seattle turned serial entrepreneur, Neill studied at the Vancouver Film School before working on projects large and small in countries all over the world.



With the advent of the iPhone 4 and its ability to shoot high definition video, Neill saw a vision of the future where everyone has the tools to become an artist or storyteller. The company began working on the initial designs of the FiLMiC Pro in 2010 and has been relentlessly updating the app ever since. Under his leadership, FiLMiC Pro has become the pre-eminent high-end video app, used by filmmakers, artists, educators and journalists the world over.

This is Cirina Catania OWC Radio. I spoke to you guys a moment ago about Neill Barham of FiLMiC Pro and how accomplished he is and how much I love all of those apps. And now we are lucky enough to have him on the phone with me. So, Neill, how are you today? 



I'm doing great. Thank you so much for having me. 



Before we get too far down the line, I want to thank OWC for sponsoring the podcast. Without them, I wouldn't be able to be talking to you today. So thank you, Larry, and the team over there in OWC. We're grateful to you. 



Neill, I watched you on stage at the Worldwide Developer Conference, and we won't talk too much about it because I noticed the new version isn't up yet. But we affectionately call that the dub dub. You're on stage at the dub dub talking about a new multi-cam version of FiLMiC Pro. How's that coming? Can you tell us any more about what's happening with that? 



Sure. And just a quick clarification, I was in the venue and may have been seen, but it's Sean Baker and our CTO Chris Cohen, who got the luxury of being on stage. And Chris is probably the best person to articulate the technical underpinnings of what rolled out with iOS 13 on the iPhone 11 Pros that will make the next generation of FiLMiC Pro possible. So multi-cam is a revolutionary capability. Kevin Buonagurio and I were recently at CES last week, and we had a great time testing out the latest FiLMiC beta with the multi-cam on the trade show floor at CES.





I'm jealous. Now I was at CES, why didn't I see this?



And it was fantastic because that made a richer presentation and interaction. We would wander from one booth to the next after we shot an interesting clip of the Sony booth where they unveiled, I'm presuming it's an electric car I had seen on maybe...
