Apple Store Appearances - Directors Rian Johnson and McG
by Alex Billington
May 10, 2009
Those of you who are Apple users (or just tech savvy individuals) are probably already familiar with this on-going series that Apple runs. But if not, every once in a while, Apple brings filmmakers to their stores for a presentation and chat. They've previously hosted Zack Snyder for Watchmen and plenty of other great filmmakers. Appearing next week will be Rian Johnson from The Brothers Bloom as well as McG from Terminator Salvation. Johnson will be at the SoHo Apple Store in New York City, and McG will be at the Third Street Apple Store in Santa Monica. I've heard these are always great experiences, so check them out.
Rian Johnson will be in New York City to talk about The Brothers Bloom starting at 7PM on Tuesday, May 12th. McG will be in Santa Monica to talk about Terminator Salvation starting at 7PM on Tuesday, May 12th. Both events are completely free and are open to the public. Click on either of the Apple store websites link above for more information. If I weren't otherwise in France, I'd probably be at the Santa Monica store on Tuesday. McG's a fun guy to talk to in-person and I'm sure this will be a great event. I wish they'd do this much more often, because it's such a rare and exciting experience to meet filmmakers like this in person.
