The whole scanner-replacing-fax idea is certainly nothing new, but I enjoyed this article in Esquire by Barry Sonnenfeld, who is a TV producer and the director of Men In Black.
Instead of relying on faxes, he can now “efficiently harass writers from anywhere, at any time”:
My method of working is to scribble thoughts on the pages of all these various scripts and then send them back to the writers. The note they dread the most is a circled joke or a scratch through lines of dialogue with a huge “DB,” which means “do better.” I used to send these notes via fax, but thanks to the latest in digital technology, I no longer need a fax machine to do so (and just as important, the writers don’t have to be at a fax machine to receive them).
His conclusion? For the travelling scanning mogul, the S300 is the way to go.
