Intro Thing - You be Turkish, I'll be Brick Top.

Hi All,

I'd like to announce our upcoming video app, Intro Thing, launching this Friday, August 24th.

Intro Thing combines filmed motion, momentary freeze frames, and music to create slick character introduction videos right on your iPhone. If you've seen the character intros at the start of Snatch or Three Musketeers then you know what to expect. Fist flying through the air, then *BAM* freeze-frame! It's Brad Pitt!

Creating an intro is as simple as filming your friends, teammates, pets, etc, from within the app and tapping to mark freeze-frame moments. After filming you can select the music, style, and enter a name and alias for each character. There's a few more details but it's probably best to just check out the How It Works trailer on the website.


The app will normally be $1.99, but we're launching with a 50%-off sale for the first week. You can grab it starting Friday for $0.99.

Thanks for reading!
