Developer's Description

A next generation storyboarding and previsualization tool for use by filmmakers and artists. Composer focuses on the essential forms of visual filmmaking: staging, pose, angle, sequence. It focuses on workflow and simplicity while maintaining the utmost in technical accuracy. It’s shot planning for real filmmakers.

Composer has been designed and implemented by an experienced hollywood Visual Effects and Previsualization Supervisor, who uses it on his own projects as well.

Composer’s presets and shortcuts are designed for proper filmmaking. Real film-backs such as Academy and Super35. Real lenses. Real digital cinema aspect ratios.

Composer’s built-in virtual camera system allows you to simply hold your iPad like a camera and frame up your shots by panning and tilting the iPad. (note: devices with gyroscopes perform much better in this mode. Though, older devices will use the accelerometer and compass to run the virtual camera with reduced accuracy.)

"FWD:labs carries the most complete listing of linked professional apps I know besides of the fragmented Android Market (google play) and the iPhone App Store. I suspect it is a tenuous work to compile and link all proven working apps and much more your site offers. I thank you for sharing such complete list of iPhone and android apps for the cinematographer and the entertainment industry in general. I could not pass the opportunity let know my readers about your meticulous resource."
"[R]idiculously useful compendium"
Directors Notes
"I thought [FWD:labs] had put together a useful list when I saw it last year, but that was nothing compared to now. If you're a filmmaker and looking for a little portable help in pre/production/post then chances are you'll find it in the Apps for Cinema Artists. I know I can be a little iPhone-centric when it comes to these things, but you’ll be pleased to know the list is completely platform agnostic."
Directors Notes
Pretty much every iPhone or Android App you'll ever need/want if you're a filmmaker
