Silent Film Director app reaches 300,000 upload milestone
Silent films are all the rage again. Talk to anyaspiring young
How many Super 8- style videos have you seen lately produced on the iPhone using apps that turn your very smartphone into a cine camera?
The Silent Film Director app for iPhone, launched a year ago, has seen 300,000 films created and shared using this little gem of an app.
Developers MacPhun estimate the total number of silent movies made on the app is probably higher as their figures include only the ones uploaded and shared.
“By February 2012 there were around 210,000 videos submitted to the gallery, but after The Artist scooped all those Oscars, the number of shared silent films grew rapidly by over 90,000 per month,” said a spokesperson.
Last month Mcphun launched the International Retro Film Contest., with partners San Francisco Silent Film Festival to showcase some of the exceptional work being shared via the Silent Film Director App.
The app is available from the iTunes app store and is now on sale for $0.99.
