iPhone Silent Film Festival Launched By MacPhun And Silent Film Director

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

I had a lot of fun with Silent Film Director last year, upon its initial release. Since then, we've seen the movie world lit up by the huge success of silent film The Artist, ably demonstrating how there's still plenty of love for films without any spoken dialogue.

Creative types inspired by The Artist now have the perfect opportunity to demonstrate what wonders they can create with Silent Film Director, thanks to the launch of the iPhone Silent Film Festival.

Shoot a video through the app, submit it to the contest and possibly win an iPad or one of numerous other prizes. It's as simple as that. For further inspiration, check out Silent Film Director's YouTube channel, offering plenty of examples and contributions. Below is one of our favorites.

Participants have until May 28 to get their entries in. Full details regarding the Contest are available on developers MacPhun's site. Good luck!

Add Cartoon Effects To Video With Cartoonatic

Posted by Jennifer Allen on June 8th, 2011
iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

Video editing is a fun task indeed when doing so on an iOS device. It's amazing the results you can come up with depending on the subject matter. I should know thanks to having an iPhone positively overflowing with videos of my cousins as they grow up. It's nice to be able to add some funky effects easily though which is precisely where Cartoonatic from MacPhun comes into the equation.

MacPhun has provided increasingly useful Photography and Video editing related apps ranging from FX Photo Studio to, more recently, Silent Film Director. The pedigree for a great app is there and Cartoonatic looks set to do exactly that.

Users will be able to create their own cartoon style videos with the ability to use one of nine video effects, each created by cartoon artists, as well as add music from 5 built-in soundtracks or from the user's iPod collection. Users can also speed up the videos for more humorous results. There's real-time previewing for all effects ensuring it's easy to see exactly what works and when.

As the app proudly announces, it's able to make its users feel like leading stars of A-Ha's Take on Me music video, which will hopefully ring a bell with many readers.

Cartoonatic is a free app for all iOS devices but users can opt to purchase Cartoonatic Premium which unlocks another 3 video effects as well as the possibility to take pictures with cartoon effects.

As is customary with apps of this kind, all results can be shared either via YouTube, Facebook, Twitter or e-mail, as well as saved back to the device's camera roll.

Cartoonatic looks set to be a great app to make funny videos of pretty much everything imaginable.

Check out the demonstration video below to see exactly how Cartoonatic works.

Cartoonatic is out now for all iOS devices and it's a free download with an in-app purchase available.

Silent Film Director Turns Free For One Day Only

Posted by Jennifer Allen on June 1st, 2011
iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

I was a big fan of Silent Film Director when it was first released in April with it scoring a very respectable 4 stars out of 5.

Now users get a chance to get their hands on Silent Film Director if they haven't already, thanks to MacPhun offering the standard version for free just for today.

The reason why is today would have been film icon Marilyn Monroe's 85th birthday so this makes for a fitting tribute for those filmmakers wanting to create a slice of old fashioned video making.

The app is a simple and fun way of creating video footage that's unique with a great cinematic quality to them. There's a variety of different styles that can be used ranging from 1920s to 1970s with two types of Sepia available. Users can also add one of 8 built in soundtracks and the speed of creations can be adjusted to add humor or dramatic tension.

Silent Film Director is available for free until the end of the day so get in there while the offer is still on!
