NY Apple customers sour on Macs as fears mount about company fate More doing PC-based Windows

Ask any of New York's diehard Macintosh users if they can imagine a world without Apple Computer and most refuse even to entertain the thought.

Still, their actions speak louder than their words...

..."It's a big source of concern for us because we are getting more heavily into Web publishing," says David Silverman, a partner in the Glyph Media Group. "There's a lack of support in Apple for new Web technologies."...

CB Cooke, head of the three-member Glyph Media Group, is causing a ripple in the independent film world with his upcoming CD-ROM interpretations of works by the late Derek Jarman.

Cooke says that working with the artifacts of someone like Jarman, a pioneering gay filmmaker who specialized in the taboo, can be a sobering experience. "I feel a great responsibility, " Cooke says of his efforts to create CD-ROMs for Blue and Edward II. "Derek's work was intensely personal and meaningful to his audience, and I have to remain true to that vision."

Blue was a particular challenge. The film, which grew out of the hospital diary Jarman kept as he lay dying of AIDS, was originally presented as a performance, incorporating improvisational jazz, readings from Jarman's texts, and Super-8 film montages. Cooke responded to the dynamic nature of the piece by creating a program that allows users to develop their own mix from elements of Jarman's legacy. Both Blue and Edward II will be available in early 1997. Glyph Media Group: +1 (212) 929 2773.

Cooke's fixation with the cultish films of the late director Derek Jarman led him to produce eagerly anticipated CD-ROMs of Blue and Edward II. The downtown artist, whose macabre animation is currently being featured at the Ricco/Maresca Gallery, expects to finish the Jarman CD-ROMs early next year, or as he puts it, "when they're stronger than dirt."

In The Works: A Superhero Unmasked

What has a green face, wears a yellow zoot suit, and sports a nifty user interface? In May, it will be Jim Carey on CD-ROM. That's when New Line New Media will publish Behind the Mask; a look at the making of the hit comedy. The CD-ROM will let you read the screenplay, browse through productions stills, and see and hear interviews with the cast and crew.

Behind The Mask will also take you step by step through the creative process. For the scene in which Carey morphs into a wolf, you'll view the inspiration (a classic Tex Avery cartoon), read The Mask's script excerpt, see the storyboards, watch how the special effects were accomplished, then take a look at the final, completed version. "There is a sense that we have the opportunity to do something more colorful and different than what films usually offer," says Mask director Charles Russell. "It's like running away to join the circus."

Special effects lovers can strip 'Mask'

Fans of the extraordinary special effects on display in Jim Carrey's hit movie "The Mask" can relive every popping eyeball, green-faced guffaw and spitting bullet in a new CD-ROM. ...

Instead, it is a color and sound-filled celebration of the movie's special effects - of particular interest to anyone fascinated by the film making process and the craft of directors and special effects folks.

Plugged In: Games: Behind The Mask

"Behind The Mask" ... uses its interactivity with ingenuity and has an extraordinary subject to explore. You don't have to be a fan of the 1994 blockbuster hit to be fascinated by the brief glimpses of how Industrial Light an Magic used computerized images of Jim Carrey to transform a timid bank clerk into a cartoon superhero.

Users: Photoshop Saves Time, Money; Helps Creativity

Adobe Photoshop users point to the software's ability to scan and manipulate images, and to drop those images into other software programs, as some of its best features. They said it saves money, time, and allows for more creativity and interactivity with their creations. ...

Charles Cooke, creative director of Glyph Media Group Inc., New York, said he "can't live without" Photoshop. Cooke develops presentations for corporations' in-house use - such as demonstrations of financial products and sales and marketing reports - as well as developing interactive, informative presentations.

Cooke uses Photoshop in conjunction with the multimedia software program MacroMind Director and graphics program Aldus Persuasion. He said it is very simple to drop Photoshop images into those other software programs. And, more important, with Photoshop he can retouch and manipulate those images himself.

Prior to using Photoshop, Cooke used a software program which did not allow him to do any image manipulation. When he wanted to put photos into slides, he had to send them to an outside agency.

Having the ability to scan and manipulate photos and images saves Cooke money and time. He estimated he can save from $50 to $100 on one image because he can do everything he wants - manipulate, airbrush or change the images - in-house.
