Almost totally awesome

I thought it would be cool to make a Silent Film for something I was trying to promote during a staff meeting. I tried it out and tested it with a few glitches. Nothing major. Then I created my movie. No problems! Until I tried to edit a movie clip within the app. It wouldn’t work (edit it elsewhere then import it in already edited). It’s as though my movie is now corrupted as I can’t add any clips to it now and the “edited” one already in there won’t play. I think I need to start all over again 😢

Great concept, very effective, fun, just some big glitches. I’d give it 3 stars but if you aren’t editing it within the app it probably will work fine.

Great for 4th graders’ school project

I’ve been using this app for several years. Each year all the 4th grades in the school (175 ish) are devided up into groups of 6-8. After learning a bit about the history of film making the kids write, storyboard, direct and edit their own films. I like using silent films because the kids don’t have to write dialogue (we get just 12 one hour class periods) can focus on visually telling the story. The app is simple to use, gives the film a little bit of an “old fashioned” look (which they like) and the “footage” loads easily into our school wide google drive where they can edit.

Love it!

I love this app! As a very strong vintage fanatic, it does remain very accurate to silent films. Although, I would call this more Edwardian than twenties, but really that’s just me nitpicking. The reason I’m giving it four stars instead of five, is because I wish the filter used on the videos you make was available to use without taking away the sound and speeding it up. But overall, great app.
