I know you’ve heard about the new biopic of Apple founder Steve Jobs (aptly named ‘Steve Jobs’). The movie is playing in select theaters now and will go nationwide next week on October 23. In this featurette, we get to learn a bit about Steve from his partner and Apple co-founder, Steve Wozniak.
Steve Wozniak talks about the movie, ‘Steve Jobs,’ and he talks about the man. This featurette starts out with a great point: Wozniak is the one who actually created the computer. Jobs was the marketer: the one who could identify which creations were likely to have mass appeal. He didn’t actually do the inventing ;).
Here’s some information about ‘Steve Jobs’:
Set backstage in the minutes before three iconic product launches spanning Jobs’ career—beginning with the Macintosh in 1984, and ending with the unveiling of the iMac in 1998—Steve Jobs takes us behind the scenes of the digital revolution to paint an intimate portrait of the brilliant man at its epicenter.
Steve Jobs is directed by Academy Award® winner Danny Boyle and written by Academy Award® winner Aaron Sorkin, working from Walter Isaacson’s best-selling biography of the Apple founder. The producers are Mark Gordon, Guymon Casady of Film 360, Scott Rudin, Boyle, and Academy Award® winner Christian Colson.
Michael Fassbender plays Steve Jobs, the pioneering founder of Apple, with Academy Award®-winning actress Kate Winslet starring as Joanna Hoffman, former marketing chief of Macintosh. Steve Wozniak, who co-founded Apple, is played by Seth Rogen, and Jeff Daniels stars as former Apple CEO John Sculley. The film also stars Katherine Waterston as Chrisann Brennan, Jobs’ ex-girlfriend, and Michael Stuhlbarg as Andy Hertzfeld, one of the original members of the Apple Macintosh development team.
Wozniak was pretty honest in this featurette. He points out that Jobs was a visionary who also had something of an ego. Wozniak talks about “Steve Jobs Zero” (the guy he was before Apple came into being). I have to say, this movie is definitely on my list to watch. Check out the featurette below.
