Blow stuff up with your iPhone!
Before you read on about a new favorite iPhone app, you need to see how we said goodbye to our Christmas tree…
I’m a big film geek, I absolutely love shooting and editing short films on my iPhone and iPad. However, I am well aware of the shortcomings of using iOS apps to add effects to my videos. Until now.
Bad Robot’s Action Movie FX app is amazing. You simply shoot a short video using the app, then add a blockbuster-sized effect, like the one you just saw here.
The free Action Movie FX app comes loaded with a few great effects. You can then download more for 99 cents. It’s a brilliant revenue model for what has already become an addictive app.
A quick tip on the movie above. I saved my finished Action Movie FX video to my iPhone camera roll. I then used the iMovie app (affiliate link) to add the title, fade in and out, and a little background music.
The app features include:
• 2 FREE Big-Budget FX! MISSILE ATTACK & CAR SMASH!
• Sound Design By Skywalker Sound!
• Fast, Automated Video Tracking!
• Music, Sound FX and Lens Flares!
• Post to Facebook or Email to friends!
Download the app here, but you have to promise to leave a comment with a link to your videos. I’m dying to see what you come up with.
Hat tip to J. for showing me this!
