Morfo
SunSpark Labs
Imagine the ability to bring any historical or fictional character to life. All you need is an image and the app Morfo. This creative app will take any front facing image of a person and using a student’s recorded audio, create a talking version of that person’s image. Students can write narratives for characters, offer a book review, recite an historic speech, and much more.

How It Works?
In order to create a Morfo video, the student must use a front facing image of the person they desire to re-create.

Video Example:

Troubleshooting
Both versions of Morfo are limited to creating 60 second clips. If you have a longer narrative or speech to use, you can make several clips. Then import them into iMovie to create one full movie.
The app also includes many style options and fun features that can distract students. To avoid extra time lost on these option, provide students specific instructions when working within the app.
Cost and Platforms
Morfo is a free application available on the Apple app store.
Morfo 3D Face Booth is a $0.99 application available on the Apple app store.
