The best thing about a birthday is the presents


I’ve writ­ten before about Silent Film Direc­tor for iOS — a cool movie shoot­ing and edit­ing app — and I’m  writ­ing again about it today is because today, for today only, it’s free (and you know how I’m all about the Free).

Silent Film Direc­tor is, to quote the devel­op­er, “…a much enhanced ver­sion of Vin­tage Video Mak­er (MacPhun’s award win­ning video app). Silent Film Direc­tor offers new fea­tures and improved func­tion­al­i­ty; it also has a dif­fer­ent design and enhanced UI.”

Hap­py Birth­day Mar­i­lyn
And the rea­son it’s free today, is the devel­op­ers want­ed to cel­e­brate Mar­i­lyn Monroe’s birth­day. Now she wasn’t exact­ly a silent film star as Mary Pick­ford was, but what the heck, an excuse to get a free and high­ly use­ful app is fine by me.


What it does
Silent Film Direc­tor is real­ly an inno­v­a­tive app that lets you cap­ture and post process your video and cre­ate Silent and Vin­tage films with cus­tomiz­able sound, video speed, title cards, tran­si­tions, etc.

Avail­able in two modes, Stan­dard and Pro, the dif­fer­ence is in the amount of fea­tures you get to post process (the effects you apply after shoot­ing the video), such as adding sound, cus­tomize speed and qual­i­ty of the video, adding spe­cial tran­si­tions and title cards, etc. The app comes stan­dard from the iTunes store, and you upgrade to Pro with an in-app pur­chase ($.99).

And since summer’s com­ing, grab­bing and using Silent Film Direc­tor with your kids could be a very neat way to cre­ate and cap­ture some unique fam­i­ly mem­o­ries.

Fun and free, how can you lose?
