MEA Mobile has released its vintage super 8mm film treatment app, iSupr8 for Windows 8.
The Kiwi firm, who developers apps for Apple's iOS system, has rebuilt the film emulator for the iPhone and iPad from scratch in line with the launch of Microsoft's Windows 8 today.
Creating and crafting videos with artisan filters, users can make films look as if they came from a time capsule according to the New Zealand, New Haven and Singapore based company.
“There’s a lot of fire in Windows 8,” says Bruce Seymour, Managing Director of MEA Mobile.
“Unique experiences such as using charms for settings and the way sharing is incorporated provide outstanding possibilities for app design.”
iSupr8 creations for Windows 8 uses the Share charm to enable users to choose their favorite share point.
“The share selections are based on what other apps you have installed, not just what our app allows,” Seymour says.
“We like the level of control this brings to our growing user base.
"More and more filmmakers alike are using mobile apps in their films.
"Users can adjust all aspects of the film stocks including grain, scratches and burn customizing the output to their personal style."
Described by The Next Web as Instagram for Video, iSupr8 was the first professional grade super 8mm film app available for mobile when released in 2011.
“Microsoft is excited and committed to working with companies such as MEA Mobile over the long term,” says John Richards, senior director of Windows App Marketing at Microsoft Corp.
“Their passion for gritty tech on modern apps makes MEA Mobile a leader in the social video space.”
