TV For Film Makers


« 1 Million Downloads is the target for cellphone short that will touch your heart... | Main | EXAM gets a four star review in Total Film, released in theatres on Jan 8th! »

Hey Chris,

Not to be a Bad Santa but sounds like my Xbox does pretty much everything Apple TV does. Sky TV on demand, Zune (full HD) videos , free music from Last FM, Facebook, Twitter, photos and of course great gaming. Syncs easily with PC's, plus it's always evolving. And it's way cheaper to buy.


Hi Chris -

Can you give us a hint as to how you manage to download stuff from the US Apple store...?

I asked for it early as I wanted it up and running before Christmas so that if there was a problem, I can get it sorted before everyone disappeared.

Well done Battle of the sexes? No chance.

I try every year to get mine early too. Often I don't know what she's got and a good test is mentioning I'm about to buy Chris Jones books DVD's etc and see if she rolls over.

But seemingly you have not only played with it but more or less tested it to destruction.

Hats off sir. I am in awe!

Actually the PS3 wins. Blu-Ray, yes. HD movies on demand, yes. Movie trailers, yes. Bluetooth, yes. Internet in HD, yes. BBC iPlayer, yes. World class games, yes. And it turns off.

Don and Eddie are both right, thanks for the feedback.

Where both PS2 and Xbox fall down though, is that my mum could use neither. And that is the acid test for a mass market. What we need is a simple box that will deliver movies, TV, music and occasional internet. I heard the BBC and other broadcasters have a new box cooking, a hybrid between HD internet streaming and Freeview HD. It has Sky rather mad!

    About Chris

    I am just like you. Passionate. Crazy mad. For movies that is. Can’t get enough. Watching movies. Making movies. Talking about movies. Drives my girlfriend Lucia nuts! So yep. Passionate, crazy and mad. And yes, I am a little schizo too. Thing is, I love making films as much as I do teaching film making. Hence, Make Film, Teach Film. I have spent my life making films and sharing what I have learned with those who, like me, have been infected with the 'film virus'... I've made three feature films, action thriller ‘The Runner’, serial killer thriller ‘White Angel’ and paranormal horror ‘Urban Ghost Story’. I also co-created and authored The Guerilla Film Makers Handbook series, and currently there are six editions! Most recently, I made the multi-award winning and Oscars shortlisted ‘Gone Fishing’. I run film making workshops and my offices are at Ealing Film Studios where I am currently plotting my next big adventure…
