Create spoof movie trailers with InAWorld apps for iPhone/iPad

This is a very first draft of this post, so I’m just putting the videos in now, with the article to follow within 24 hours…

I’ve come across a great series of apps which enable you to create spoof movie trailers.

It’s called InAWorld…

As of now you can buy InAWorld…Drama and InAWorld…Comedy, with InAWorld…Romance and InAWorld…Horror/SciFi coming soon.

I own InAWorld…Drama and my son Toby was so impressed when I showed him this app that he downloaded InAWorld…Drama and InAWorld…Comedy!

The app consists of dozens of segments of speech recorded by a professional voiceover artist which you stitch together with photos from your gallery to create an approx 30-second spoof trailer.

The app uses the voice of Jonathan Cook, who has been used in countless movie trailers for ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox, FX, CW, WB, Bravo, Disney Channel and Nickelodeon.  Check out www.jonathancook.net.

Here are 3 videos to show what I created, then I’ll show you how I created them later on…

This next one was created by my son Toby. It’s called BFFs which, you may not know, means Best Friends Forever. We shot the photos with my iPhone 4′s camera there and then, sitting by the pool yesterday…

What’s not clear in the app descriptions…

The difference between each app is less than you may think: the scripts stay the same, but the tone of the voiceover artist’s voice is different (more upbeat and lighter) for Comedy, and all the background tunes are different.

What’s great…

  • Fab voiceover
  • Very clever idea

What’s not so great…

  • InAWorld…Comedy crashed once when I was trying it out on Toby’s iPod Touch
  • The trailer/showreel graphics look a bit amateurish
  • Navigating the app is a bit confusing

What would be great…

  • If, after choosing a photo from the Gallery, I could use the common 1 and 2-finger gestures to select the part of the photo to show in the trailer

Having said all this, I highly recommend you get one or more of these apps. They are great fun to play about with, especially if you want to encourage children to be creative.

This is a universal app which works on the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. Price: $1.99 / £1.19.
