Action Movie FX lets the children add Hollywood-style special effects to their iPad movies. This can include alien spaceships, crashing asteroids or a tornado.

This would be great for adding a little pizazz to their films – the clips could then be added to other footage within an app such as iMovie. This would also be good to use to create a short film to use as a story starter to inspire their own creative writing or film making.


The Action Movie FX app is free, and comes with 6 free effects such as spider strike, avalanche, missile attack, car smash, demolition rock and rough terrain. All other effects are in-app purchases.
