Have you ever wanted to create your own mini movie with special effects? What better way to get into the director's chair than with Movie VFX and share those results with friends and family? There are all sorts of possibilities and creations to be made that are both exciting and hilarious depending on what you film.

From the developer that brought you Speed Dial and Camera Timer, this time they focused on creating an entertaining app to bring out the filmmaker in all of us.

One thing I have to point out is how easy to use Toysoft's applications. All that's needed is a good eye for detail and a quick tap on record. In just a matter of moments your video is generated with no lag and the results look amazing. Be aware that it does require quite a bit of memory to load the effects and, as such, you should close all running applications before opening Movie FX. For optimal performance, it is also recommended that users are running OS 10.1.

Let's dive into your video. All of the visual effects are located in the center of the screen and all that is required is tapping on the desired one to begin. Each of the shorts are recorded in real-time with the option for sepia and greyscale. They can also be edited after the fact or imported into Story Maker to create full length videos. Users have the option of previewing the event to frame their scene, tapping on the record button to start shooting, and then choosing the add effects icon to overlay. Changes are then saved and stored in device memory. 

RIght now there are only four effects available: UFO Attack, Bomber, Humvee, or Gun Shots. However, if you are eager for more there is another application available that offers Car Bomb, Air Attack, Asteroid, and Police. Both applications support the BlackBerry Z10, Q10, and Q5 and can be grabbed at the links below for $0.99 each.

What are you waiting for? I know it was fun walking around Times Square creating my own UFO invasion videos and I can only imagine what marvelous full length features are waiting to be filmed when combined with Story Maker.
