The filmmaking space is not reserved for the Hollywood biggies alone. This misunderstanding is one reason why not many people experiment filmmaking. Anyone shooting a family holiday film or a short film for a cause can be termed as a filmmaker. Now, there are devices and numerous apps that bring out the videographer in you, effortlessly. Here are five such apps for Apple iPad.

iMovie is now part of your Apple experience, and is ideal for home videos and trailers. It goes very well with your iPhone and iPad, leaving no room for video format incompatibilities. In addition to the regular video editing capabilities, iMovie includes options to insert studio logos and cast, bookmark favorite moments of a video and even share a part of a movie clip. You can experiment with the picture-in-picture, slow motion and fast-forward features too. Inserting a soundtrack into your videos is a part of almost all video-making apps, and iMovie is no less. If you can handle time well, you can even insert your narration into the timeline.
This one has good rating on the app store. Montaj is actually a free social video app that also makes video making simpler and exciting than never before. One thing different about Montaj is that it responds to shakes, and every time you shake the device, it shuffles between clips, audio and filters.
Montaj has a sharing module that lets you share your videos on social media, and interact with videos of your friends.
Socialcam is one of the most popular and highly rated video-making app for the iPad. TechCrunch commended it as “Instagram for video”, because of the filters and ease of use this app flaunts. Socialcam is more of a basic video editor and sharing app for beginners, but includes all essentials like titles, themes, soundtracks, and a video-sharing module as well.
This app is priced at $4.99, and offers a variety of filters that add essence to your footages. Unique selling point of this app is the compression methods it handles to reduce file size, thus improving recording time. Besides filters, it allows you to pause and resume, switch between filters as and when you record and vary the frame rate of capture, which results in slower or faster videos.
