Why Steve Jobs matters: a film-maker’s touching tribute
In a personal tribute to Steve Jobs,
In the film he spends the night in front of Manhattan’s AT&T store with his buddies to be the first in line when the store opened at 9am.
Now, and filming on his iPhone 4, he has updated the film with footage from outside the Apple store in SoHo capturing poignant scenes as fans and Apple aficionados pay their own tribute to Jobs in recognition of the impact he has had on their own lives.
“I made this movie in 2007 but never published it. Steve Jobs’ death reminded me of it. In 2000, I was living in a trailer park when Apple released the iMac DV, the first consumer machine that could edit video. I maxed out my credit card and got one. No film school, it was that computer that got me into films and provided me with the career I have today. Sad to lose Steve Jobs,” he writes.
“As artists, Apple products represent the tools and inspiration to be creative and express ourselves. Steve Jobs paved the way for many of us to become filmmakers. He will be missed,” said indie directors Ariel Schulman and Henry Joost who produced the film Catfish last year, and posted on Neisat’s Facebook wall.
If you only watch one of the hundreds of Jobs’ tributes online, make it this one. He would have loved it too.
