The Mobile Apps To Make Your Movies Magic

Best Movie Making Apps

We’ve all watched our favourite films thinking we could do just as good a job if we were in charge – and while that might be a bit of wishful thinking, there’s nothing to stop you from recreating the best the big screen has to offer! In fact, these days there’s tons of tools to help make your own directorial dreams come true!


From eye-catching explosions to spooky special effects, you’d be stunned at what you can pull off with your phone, and we’ve picked out some of the most awesome apps to bring your mobile moviemaking to the next level…




Available for Android and iOS When it comes to bombs, blasts and bad guys, this one has you covered! It’s also got official packs from a load of mega-movies, so franchise fans can really get stuck in. It’s perfect for taking a crack at recreating Independence Day (available to rent now on Virgin Movies from €2.99) without damaging any US government buildings!





Available for Android and iOS


Fancy creating some truly scary moments? This spooky software provides everything from music to cloning effects; your very own hair-raising horror flick is just a few taps away! If making your own Poltergeist (available to rent now on Virgin Movies from €2.99) is your idea of a good time, then you’ll be sending shivers down your mates’ spines in no time!






Available for iOS


This one makes the even sophisticated editing seem simple; recording narration, adding sound effects, and dropping in text tiles are all child’s play! Pop a voiceover onto your footage to have your very own Life of Pi (available to rent now on Virgin Movies from €2.99) – though we have to point out that finding a raft and a tiger is something no app can manage!






Available for Android and iOS


This app is pretty legit – enough to create professional-level clips! – but one feature everyone can enjoy is the green-screen capability. Sci-fi fun is suddenly reality…in video, at least! So if you think you could make Avatar (available to rent now on Virgin Movies from €2.99) even more awesome, this is the gadget to help you on your way!
