About

After developing on the iOS platform for the past 2.5 years, we've begun to get enamored with some of the new hardware coming out on the Android side of things, especially the new Samsung Galaxy S4 and its ability to capture video at a stunning 120fps.

Recently, we were invited by Intel into the Intel Developer Zone in hopes of developing FiLMiC Pro for both Android x86 and Windows 8.  As a strategic partner we will have some unique advantages to develop the best optimized version of FiLMiC Pro possible for Android, both now and in the future.

Why Kickstarter?

Many of our fans have been after us to develop an Android version of FiLMiC Pro. Kickstarter is the ideal place to measure the demand from Android users and offer unique incentives for anyone to Kickstart their own mobile filmmaking ventures.

With the 3rd generation of FiLMiC Pro in the App Store, featuring a host of new goodies, and our iOS7 update right around the corner with optional 60fps, and the debut of our Pro Series video filters designed by Adobe Dream Team member, Jack "Wow" Davis, we thought now is a good time to test out what we can do with the limits of the best hardware for Android such as the Samsung Galaxy series, the new HTC One and Sony Xperia Z, and possibly even a voice-controlled version for Google Glass.

What the app looks like:

Risks and challenges

The very nature of a maximum viable product is a risk. It runs against everything the venture capital and investor crowd tells you to do.

"Do one thing and do it well". It makes some sense, if you're thinking of maximizing profit margins: minimize complexity, minimize development time, minimize development costs. But what if you are a user, rather than an investor, and your dream is to build the very mobile video camera app that you want to use. Then the idea of reducing features to the bare, minimally viable product seems, at the very least, counter-intuitive and at worst, boring and disinteresting to develop.

We build the cameras we want to use, and then we use them. Over time FiLMiC Pro has proved it can hang with cameras costing from 300x to 3000x the price. The reason we are seeking crowdfunding is so no one can force us to leave any cool, but selectively used features on the cutting room floor. That is why we are counting on you to help crowdfund our maximum viable product for Android.

Supporting a broad range of Android devices is a challenge. Our initial goal is to serve the Samsung Galaxy series, then the Sony Xperia Z/Z1. If we cross $200,000 then we plan to add the MotoX and some upper-level HTC and LG devices.

If we exceed $250,000 we will look into developing for Android tablets as well. And if we surpass $500,000 we will begin R&D on developing a voice-controlled version of FiLMiC Pro for Google Glass!

Now remember this is your app for your favorite device. Fund it and we will build it for you. Have good ideas and wherever possible, we will implement them! So click on the REWARD of your choice and Kickstart FiLMiC Pro for Android!
