Flixel Photos Inc. a New Brunswick tech startup, launched a free iPhone application that lets users create beautiful living photos in seconds. The app is already a top photo and video application.

Developed in collaboration with Toronto based development shop extraordinaire, Endloop Mobile, Flixel distinguishes itself from its competitors via its unique and simple creation process enabling users to “live paint” their animation and instantly preview their living photo.

“We wanted the creation process to be intuitive, fun and instantly gratifying for our community of flixographers”, exclaim founders Philippe LeBlanc and Mark Homza. “Our clean interface and robust editing tools empower users to create beautiful living photos .”

Inspired by Kevin Burg and Jamie Beck’s Cinemagraphs, Flixel’s CEO, Philippe LeBlanc “stumbled upon” these beautiful moving images in late august 2011, and was immediately intrigued by the possibility of an iPhone experience.

“I was so enthralled by Cinemagraphs but burdened by the complexity and time required to create them. With Flixel, we bring you a creative experience that blends simplicity, artistic integrity, and pushes the boundaries of iPhone imagery.”

“There’s nothing we enjoy more at Endloop than working on innovative technology with passionate entrepreneurs” says Endloop’s CEO, Kerry Morrison. “Flixel gave us a chance to collaborate creatively on an exciting app in one of the hottest categories of the App Store”.
