Bookmark this Site for the Best Curated Filmmaking Apps

A great resource for filmmaking apps. 

It seems almost every week you can find a story about the best apps available for nearly any subject. Filmmaking is no different. But what tends to happen in our 72 hour news cycle is that things can get lost in the shuffle. The people behind the Pro Filmmaker Apps website aims to change all of it.

Pro FIlmmaker Apps

The idea originated at FWD:labs and finds its home at Pro Filmmaker Apps, a curated database of filmmaking apps that are neatly categorized into different searchable subjects, including cinematographers, camera assistant, colorists, directors, VFX artists, sound mixers, and many others. 

At the time of publication, over 300 apps can be found on the site with direct links to download. It's worth noting there is no extra cost associated when using the site. Pro Filmmaker Apps is just doing us a solid by creating a database. 

Familiar programs like Filmic Pro, Lens Matcher, Focus Chart, and Artemis Pro are all featured as well as some lesser known ones like Storyboard Composer used by Wes Craven and Shot Assistant. So if you're a screenwriter, location scout, or even drone operator, you can browse hundreds of available software for Apple, Android, Windows, and native web devices to help on your next project.

The database is continuing to grow and we noticed some favorites are missing like LumaFusion and Broadfish. If you find any others that are missing, let them know

Unfortunately... most of the apps are written for Appleheads.

Another handy app, AvailableApp. It streamlines the crew booking process. Make it easy to network, find, manage and communicate with your crew while on the set.

A couple of apps I usually recommend to quickly and easily generate social content are Typorama and Videorama.

The first one helps you create nice layouts using stills and typography, while the second does the same but using video.

Yes, you can do the same using Photoshop or Premiere, but the key here is how fast anyone handling your social media pages can create visually attractive content. Oh, and they're free.
