7 : Full Metal Jacket Diary with Adam Rackoff

 

07 Adam Rackoff : In this episode of Kubrick's Universe, producer Adam Rackoff talks about his Full Metal Jacket Diary App and Full Metal Jacket Diary Audiobook, and about his work with Matthew Modine.

SKAS_Kubrick_s_Universe_Episode_Adverts_Ep7.jpg

Adam Rackoff is a New York-based filmaker with numerous credits, including 27 as  producer, on feature films, shorts, documentaries, and even a video game.   But he is best known among Kubrick fans for his collaborations with Matthew Modine on the Full Metal Jacket Diary iPad App, and later the Full Metal Jacket Diary Audiobook.

Adam met Matthew when he came into the Apple Store that Adam was working at, as part of the "Made on a Mac" series.  This eventually led to the Full Metal Jacket Diary App.

Wikipedia defines a "killer app" as "any computer program that is so necessary or desirable that it proves the core value of some larger technology, such as computer hardware, a gaming console, a software platform, or an operating system. An example would be Lotus 123 for the PC in the 1980's.   Kubrick fans would argue that Adam and Matthew's Full Metal Jacket Diary app is just such a one for the iPad -- as a brand new, incredibly immersive way to experience a book.

The app includes numerous "special features", including web links relating to the project.  In one of them, from 2010, Matthew writes: "Last spring I was gifted an iPad.  It's an interesting device.  I downloaded a couple of iBooks and different apps.   It's pretty cool.  I also owned a Kindle, but wasn't enthusiastic about the prospect of reading on it.  My friend and I were talking about the experience of reading on electronic devices and imagined that if a developer could make the experience more cinematic and interactive, then digital books could take the reader on a unique journey.  I realized then, that my friend and I could do just that and the iPad could be the perfect platform to re-release my book.  My friend became my design partner and producer on the Full Metal Jacket Diary app."

Adam is obviously you are the "friend" here -- Welcome to Kubrick's Universe.

4 : Stanley Kubrick & Me with Filippo Ulivieri

 

04 Filippo Ulivieri : Author Filippo Ulivieri talks to Kubrick's Universe about Archivio Kubrick and his fantastic book Stanley Kubrick and Me.

SKAS_Kubrick_s_Universe_Episode_Adverts_Ep4.jpg

Stanley Kubrick, has always been depicted by the media as the Howard Hughes of filmmakers, a weird artist obsessed with his work and privacy to the point of madness. But who was he really? Emilio D'Alessandro lets us see. A former Formula Ford driver who was a minicab chauffeur in London during the Swinging Sixties, he took a job driving a giant phallus through the city that became his introduction to the director. Honest, reliable, and ready to take on any task, Emilio found his way into Kubrick's neurotic, obsessive heart. He became his personal assistant, his right-hand man and confidant, working for him from A Clockwork Orange until Kubrick's death in 1999.

"This was an awesome interview and as I have felt with the others, it really makes a difference to have podcast BY Kubrick fans, FOR Kubrick fans. It just put me in a "good space" of Kubrick immersion throughout." Mark Lentz, Stanley Kubrick Meet-Ups New York - 25 March 2018.
