Miguel Arteta, independent film director
Arteta maxed out 16 credit cards for
his feature debut, Star Maps (1997);
the film garnered widespread critical
acclaim. He and his collaborators
Matthew Greenfield and Mike
White followed up with an ode to
obsession, Chuck & Buck (2000), and
the darkly comedic The Good Girl
(2002). The director is photographed
on Sunset Boulevard.
His idea, captured.
As a filmmaker, Miguel Arteta dabbles in dreams. Every story first unfolds
in his mind, awaiting interpretation. He translates imagery into words, words into
drama, and action onto the big and small screens. To remain true to a vision,
Arteta must speak the language of his characters. He must take
the journey with them – even as he guides the process.
The Tablet PC translates dreams, too. A director can download a script.
He can revise it. Months later, as a cast of actors breathes life into his lines,
he can listen and take notes – longhand, directly onto the screen – and then
watch his words transform into type. (Dramatic pause.) Imagine that.
The Tablet PC. It’s the PC, evolved.
In the hands of Miguel Arteta.
It’s a laptop. It’s a simple pad and pen.
It’s the Tablet PC running Microsoft Windows® XP Tablet PC Edition.
