Super 8 App

Not only am I already insanely excited for J.J. Abrams' Super 8 this summer, but I'm a big Apple fanatic as well, with my iPhone and iPad on me pretty much at all times. I'm happy to report that Apple and Super 8 are coming together, as Paramount has launched a new Super 8 app (just search for "Super 8" in the App Store or click here) that instead of showing clips from the film, is actually vintage Super 8 camera app that comes complete with scratch-and-dirt, shake, vintage lenses and effects. I briefly tested it out and I'm quite impressed, it's a great 'lil camera app. And of course there are apparently some hidden viral clues in it, too.

Super 8 is the ultimate Super 8 camera emulator for your video-capable iDevice. Using Super 8, you can make your own vintage movies and add lens, filter and shake effects, arrange clips and scenes the way you want them; you can even add your own credits. When you're done, send your Super 8 movie off to be developed. Your masterpiece will appear in your personal movie library where, with the tap of a finger, you can view your movie in the built-in Super 8 projector room, export it to a computer or email it to friends. Super 8 offers seven lens effects, three animated filters, a scratch-and-dirt overlay and frame shake effect that you can mix-and-match to create a wide variety of looks for your movies. Get the full details right here.

I'm not exactly sure how the clips or frames for the viral were discovered, but I think it has something to do with the editing room and shooting various Super 8 films in the app. It's an extensive app that not only includes a camera, but an editing room, library, pull-down projector screen and so much more. It's just awesome to play with too, because it has such a vintage feel, but is incredibly well-designed for a modern app. Right now the app is FREE, but that's for a limited time. This is an impressive transmedia creation. Super 8, Abrams' original sci-fi movie, hits theaters on June 10th this summer. I cannot wait. Stay tuned!
