Watch: Martin Scorsese Helps You Make A Movie With Your iPad

“You can’t do your work according to the people’s values. I’m not talking about ‘following your dream,’ either,” Martin Scorsese stated during a commencement speech to the NYU Tisch School of the Arts Class of 2014. “I never like the inspirational value of that phrase. Dreaming is a way of trivializing the process, the obsession that carries you through the failure as well as the successes which could be harder to get through. If you’re dreaming, you’re sleeping. It’s important and imperative to always be awake to your feelings, your possibilities, your ambitions. But you also know this, for your work, for your passions, every day is a rededication. Painters, dancers, writers, filmmakers, it’s the same for all of you, all of us. Every step is a first step, every brush stroke is a test, every scene is a lesson, every shot is a school. So, let the learning continue.”

Inspiring stuff, and Apple chose that segment of Scorsese’s talk to power their “Make A Film With iPad” campaign. This promo highlights how students at Los Angeles County High School for the Arts used Apple’s high-tech device to make their own movies, and in turn shows how that thing you use to check Twitter can do so much more. It’s a nicely done ad, and you can watch it below and learn more here. [The Inspiration Room]
