Shoot And Edit A Movie On The iPhone

Your iPhone 3g might allow you to shoot video, but unless you're a one-shot Scorsese, you still need iMovie to create a presentable phone shot film...  But a new app has been released which might change everything. ReelDirector gives users the ability to stitch videos together, add titles, transitions and other effects. Watch a video demonstration after the jump to see the app and all of its powers.

  • Add and stitch together clips, drag-and-drop to rearrange order.
  • Add text watermarks of title, opening credits and closing credits with 4 styles and 9 positions to choose from.
  • Put transitions between clips to smooth or blend the change from one scene to another. With 27 transitions to choose from, create professional looking videos with ease and fun.
  • Share your movies by email or save to Camera Roll.
  • I'm convinced we'll someday see a feature film, both shot and edited on an iPhone on the big screen at Sundance, but could it possibly be anything more than a novelty? Now the only question is... who will be the first person to shoot and edit a movie completely on their iPhone? Also, will that person submit to Sundance, or send the video instantly to YouTube?I haven't tried this app out yet as I'm still holding out for an official iMovie app, which seems like an obvious step. But at $7.99, it seems like a steal.
