King Talks Technology

The Guardian interviewed Black Sheep director Jonathan King about his favourite gadgets on the eve of his film’s UK release. King’s favourite piece of technology is his Apple iBook G4 laptop – “I use it to write, read, chat, think, goof off, listen to music, goof off, research, write … all in the one spot at my desk.” King describes himself as more “nerdular” than luddite and dreams of a day when filmmakers will be fully autonomous. “I think most filmmakers are like people who starved in war time: even if you believe you can get funding for your films in the future, you are always working toward the day you’ll be self-sufficient,” he says. “That’s getting more and more possible as this technology gets better and cheaper, closing the gap between having the idea and shooting and cutting the pictures.”
