Using iPad as a professional storyboarding tool

I found this interview at iMore and thought it was interesting. Rene Ritchie talks to Ron McCallum who has storyboarded Pacific Rim, Star Trek and other movies and TV shows. They talk about the storyboarding job, about iPads, the iPad Pro and Apple Pencil.

”It arrived, and I started drawing, and I was like, "Right. OK. I get this now. I get it. This is good. I can make this work." I was just finishing off "Ghost in the Shell," and then I think I got a call from "The Strain."”

And further into the interview:

”I managed to do the storyboards on it and I managed to work out a workflow incredibly quickly for being able to do this. I was like, "I think this actually may work," because the Apple Pencil is by far the best drawing experience I've had digitally. This is as close to a real pencil as I've ever experienced, so the iPad Pro basically has changed everything about how I work.”
