Apple News: Drew Wharton: A Day in A Seal’s Life

Together with his intrepid film crew, documentary filmmaker Drew Wharton often found himself within feet of enormous bellowing 4,500 pound alpha males clashing mightily over females in estrus. It is A Seal’s Life, after all. The film (which debuted at the Monterey Bay Aquarium) tells the story of the world’s largest seal species—the northern Elephant Seal—behemoths that come ashore once a year to give birth, molt, and mate. “Apple technology saves me a ton of time and money,” notes Wharton, who edited the film in Final Cut Studio. “Our whole workflow is based on Macs, from field acquisition to post production. A Seal’s Life was made on a Mac from start to finish—for me, it didn’t make sense to do it any other way.”
