When you see interviews with famous film directors like Scorsese or Spielberg they will often talk about the things that inspired them to make movies when they were young. They will tell stories of getting out the Super 8 movie camera and filming their friends and family and showing the finished 'masterpiece' off to anyone and everyone who wanted to see it. The final touch would be the music that accompanied the film. It would set the mood for the piece and turn a silent film into something way more cinematic. One thing's for sure - it was a labor of love from beginning to end.

These days, you don't have to hunt out a Super 8 camera to make a movie. You'd be pushing your luck to find one, if the truth were known. There are heaps of movie making apps available nowadays that let you make a movie in a matter of minutes. But then you have to find the music to set the right atmosphere and you might even have to do a little post-production afterwards to smarten it up. DRAMApp is a simple but effective new movie making app for iOS that let's you make a finished movie in as little as 30 seconds and comes complete with the relevant soundtrack to seal the deal.

Let's face it, the thing that defines a movie in many cases is the music that accompanies it. You can pick a horror movie, for example, by the opening notes of the theremin and immediately hear those spooky atmospherics that define the genre. The unique thing about DRAMApp is that it starts off with the music and it's that soundtrack that sets the scene for the movie that you want to make. Just pick one of the 24 genres - whether it be drama, comedy, action, scifi or horror etc - press your finger on the button and you'll be live filming until you pause and release it. Press it again and your filming continues.

To keep you in the mood, you'll hear the music playing all the time that you are recording. You can edit your movie and use a few filters as you go and, when you are finished, you can simply add an intro and some credits to your masterpiece. Then you can save your film to your camera roll or share it with your friends via your favorite social network or email. I can't guarantee that you'll be the new Scorsese or Spielberg, but you'll certainly have a lot of fun.

DRAMApp is a creative movie-making app that turns you into a film director in a simple and intuitive way. To get started, just turn your smartphone into landscape mode and press on one of the genre icons to listen to the various soundtracks available. Once you've decided on the right one, just point and shoot by holding your finger down on the one you want to use. You can easily add edits to the film just by pressing and letting go of the recording button. Alternatively, you can delete your last shot and film something else. DRAMApp is available for free now for iPhone and iPad via the App Store.
