I feel bad barraging you with Super 8 news, but I’m just so damn excited!
The latest offerings from Paramount Pictures are a pair of new hi-res stills from the J.J. Abrams-directed sci-fi genre pic that’s produced by Mr. Steven Spielberg. In addition, the studio has revealed a pretty rad iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch application: a full-featured video recorder that emulates a vintage Super 8 camera! OMFG anyone?
The app, which is distributed by Paramount Digital Entertainment and was created by app-development newcomer QMx Interactive and Bad Robot Interactive, allows users to create vintage movies on their Apple mobile devices. Super 8 comes with seven photorealistic lenses sporting such effects as infrared, chromatic and x-ray. Users can overlay additional filter effects – like light leaks and vignettes – and “age” their film with a random scratch-and-dirt filter. There’s even a frame-shake effect to top off the old-school feel of Super 8-made movies. A+
Super 8 arrives in theaters June 10.
