We are beyond excited as we launch our new video effects and filters app today! Filmm is currently available for iOS and lets you add light leaks, dust, grain, and other film-like effects to your video clips. The app also has lots of filters as well as adjustment tools so you can edit clips before sharing on social media (this app is perfect for IG Stories, among other things). We’ve been sharing a LOT of clips and other information on @filmmapp, so follow there if you want more updates. Our team has been hard at work on this app along with our fellow founder, Zoe Sugg, for about a year now and we are just pinching ourselves today as we launch! We have so much more planned for Filmm and we cannot wait to see what you create!
Q: Why did you decide to work with Zoe Sugg and who else is behind the Filmm app?
A: Elsie and I have been big fans of Zoe and her brand, Zoella, for years. We love what she’s created and the positivity she chooses to spread with her platform. We connected with her through Instagram (no surprise there, right? ha) and we became very interested in working on an app. Together we landed on wanting to create a video app, as that felt like the perfect fit between all our combined talents and experiences thus far in our careers. Zoey and her team are a joy to work with and have brought so much to the project. We are immensely proud to work alongside another strong, talented female founder.
Additionally, we have to say how proud and thankful we are for our entire team. We work with a small group of very talented developers and our business team to make big projects like this come to life. I think the best thing I’ve ever done in business is find others who are much smarter and more talented than me to work with. I am especially proud of Trey George for the vision and leadership he brings to our app companies. #proudwife

Q: How much does the app cost?
A: It’s free to download and comes with 17 filters and effects (we like to call them filmms), adjustment tools which includes curves, and a story splitter. We have other Filmm packs with more filters and effects available for purchase, or you can subscribe to get everything for one price. We plan to add more packs and other features to the app often, so the subscription is easily the best deal. But I’m not trying to hard sell you—that’s exactly why we have multiple options so you can decide what you want and will use.
Q: Will Filmm be available for Android?
A: Yes, eventually. Developing an app is a long and costly project, so we wanted to make sure that there was interest in Filmm before we developed it on two different platforms (developing for Android means it’s a completely different app; it’s not the same code simply added to both app stores). So as long as it seems there is interest in Filmm, we plan to get started on developing the Android version right away. Android is a bit harder to develop, as there are SO many different devices compared to Apple, so it may take us some time, but we are on it. 🙂
Q: What makes Filmm different than editing videos in A Color Story?
A: This is a question we have gotten a few times, since our A Color Story app has the ability to edit videos. The main point of difference are Filmm’s moving effects. You may notice if you add an A Color Story effect to your video, it will stay in place. In Filmm, the effects move with the video and create a more realistic look! At launch, Filmm is a video effects + filters app, but we are planning on adding some MAJOR features in the future (adding multiple clips, music, etc!), which will make it stand out from A Color Story even more. Once you download the app you will see how different the two are.

Hey! I just downloaded your app and all of the effects and filters look incredible! I was just wondering if under the same video, am I able to use multiple filters? Like one filter for 5 seconds, and switch to another after that, and so on?
Hi!! You can apply different filters to each clip of your video. Let us know if you have any more questions!

Here is our support page where our team can help. 🙂 https://filmm.co/support/
Hi, loving the app so far! Wondering if there’s a way to remove the “filmm” and counter on the side of the videos?
Hi Stephen! If you make a purchase within the app, it will give you the option to remove it 🙂
What does it mean if the app says “ERROR. The data couldn’t be read because it isn’t in the correct format.”?? I am so frustrated because I have had to restart a project 3 times because this keeps happening all of a sudden.
Hi Kate— I’m sorry about that. If you contact our app support, they can help! (https://filmm.co/support/)
Hi what did you do? Mine keeps crashing like yours
I am loving the filmm app and really anything that you lovely ladies make. I was wondering what the time threshold for the app is? How long of videos can the app edit?
Hi Savannah! There isn’t a maximum time for videos, but if you have any issues you can reach out to our support team (https://filmm.co/support/)
Good morning, I’ve used your app many times and love it but my last video I’m getting a message “this operation cNt be completed error 0”
When I try to save the video to my phone. How can I fix that and not lose the video? I’m scared to use the app again and have the same thing happen over and over when I want to save
I’m sorry about that! Our app support can help— https://filmm.co/support/
I purchased a filter (VHS) and I was already charged but I still can’t use the filter. It’s been 5 days since I made the payment.
Hi Camille— If you contact our app support they will be happy to help with that today! (https://filmm.co/support/)
The App keeps crashing when I try to apply a filter (the Dust filter) on my video compilation. And all my progress gets deleted. Is there a specific amount of videos you can use it on at once?
I’m sorry about that! If you contact our app support, they will be able to help troubleshoot. (https://filmm.co/support/)
I tired to use Filmm and it won’t let me save single videos after hours of editing? Is there a reason for this?
Hi! Contact our support team here https://filmm.co/support/ (We can’t help solve your issue without more information) xx!!
I second the Android question – any more advancements on this? It’s so my vibe!
How far away is the android version? Really looking forward to it!
I lost all my filters that I purchased. I can’t seem to restore them back? Could u let me know how I can sort it out?
If you contact our support team at acolorstory.com/support they can help ????
Can you stitch multiple videos together?
Can’t wait for the android version!
Hello! I was just wonder why when I have no internet or service I can’t use all the filters even though I have the + version! Thanks!
Hi Sierra! If you contact A Color Story support they will be happy to help – http://www.acolorstory.com/support
It’s a shame that you didn’t make the app for android users too.
Hi! An android version is in the works, it just takes longer to develop.
Did you delete the A Beautiful Mess app from the iTunes App Store? I tried to show a friend the app and we can’t find it. Also my app has now quit working and since we can’t find in the App Store I don’t want to delete it and not be able to download it again. It was my favorite photo app ever.
I’m super excited for this! Could someone tell me, is the A Beautiful Mess app no longer available? I’ve searched in Google Play and the Apple App Store and cant find it anywhere! ????
