Martin Scorsese Is A Big iChat Fan

Apple's iChat can be quite addictive when chatting with friends and family, but who knew that an Oscar winning director could use it for work? In The Departed, Martin Scorsese used iChat to help him direct the final "rat shot" scene from a Mac in New York.

According to Macenstein, in an interview with visual effects supervisor Rob Legato, he explains how Scorsese wanted to do a reshoot of a scene filmed in LA, even though he was in New York at the time. So Scorsese and the director of photography, Michael Ballhaus, used a Mac to watch the shoot. Legato says "A speaker connected to the Mac was placed on the camera dolly, and iChat allowed Scorsese to direct the scene with the crew listening to him in realtime."

This calls for a "lights, camera, iChat, action!"
