The idea behind Hand Held Hollywood is to explore how Apple's ubiquitous iPhone (and iPod Touch) can be used in nearly every aspect of film and video production. Hand Held Hollywood provides a destination for those wishing to discus and discover the latest techniques and technology; a place where every gadget obsessed writer, producer, director, cinematographer, composer, editor, actor, and otherwise can call home.

The founder of Hand Held Hollywood, Taz Goldstein, is a Los Angeles based Director who launched Hand Held Hollywood to satisfy his own filmmaking and gadget addictions.

With 20 years experience, Goldstein's work has spanned nearly every medium. His award winning films have been showcased at festivals from Savannah to Singapore. His commercial directing garnered the Radius Award at the Cannes International Advertising Festival. And his television work has been seen by more than 30 million viewers (HBO Networks, Fox Television Studios, Food Network, MTV, FX and the Prime Time Emmy Awards).

Goldstein has lectured at numerous industry events including NAB, Macworld, and the DV Expo
