Director DJ Caruso tells JustSoYouKnow how he used iPads to make I Am Number Four:

"David Lee, our gaffer, and I got ours first. I got it, I don't want to say as a toy, but then I realized about a week into prep that my storyboards were coming on it, my previs was on it, my script was on it, I don't carry my script anymore. I started getting emails from two of my storyboard artists who work in Los Angeles and I have this application where I can mark up the boards — I'm a terrible drawer — and I can mark up the boards and send them back. It just became this amazing production tool." ... "Our gaffer, we have this lumen that's on Number Four's hand, he controls the lumen, he controls the lighting and everything is run from his iPad." ... "Well I think people who are making movies now, I can't imagine they're not doing it [using the iPad] because, I've got to tell you, I've got every previz thing on there, I have every storyboard on there, I have every script and every script note," he said. "I make my shot list on there and from that shot list I just send it... it's become an amazing tool and I never would have thought it would have kicked in that fast. In fact, I talked to Steven, because I was sending him something from my iPad and he sent something back from his iPad and I thought, 'Oh you got one!' and he's like, 'Yeah.' and I told him all these things I was using and he was like, 'Which apps do you have?' so here you are sending back which apps you have to Steven Spielberg. everyone's starting to use it because it really is an amazing tool."
