Vine? Instagram video? Sure, lots of neat little features for short videos, such as filters and what not.
But here comes Efexio, a new app from a New York-based company that wants to create a special-effects marketplace for your phone and tablet videos.
Of late, special-effects studios have been feeling the pinch, with many struggling to survive the changing economics of their business. The folks behind Efexio say they're hoping the marketplace will create a new line of business for these folks.
To kick things off, they've partnered with Berkeley-based Tippett Studio, a visual effects studio that has won Academy Awards and has had a hand in movies such as "Hellboy" and "Starship Troopers." The Efexio marketplace now has a "Tippett Creature Shop" that features dragons, zombies, dinosaurs and penguins.
