Two Quick Ways to Turn Dynamic Images Into Dramatic Video Stories

Snapshots

 

The video app, Flipagram, was ideal for capturing some of my favorite images from 2013. You can make a 15 or 30 second video story right from your iPhone or Android, add your own music and voila, share with friends on Facebook, YouTube, Instagram and email. My 15 seconds follows to give you some inspiration:

I recently discovered this in a video class I took: anyone can make a stop motion video in one afternoon. I created the film below using 135 still images I took last summer at a friend’s play date. How lucky to have the children jump all afternoon for me! I used iMovie to string the images together, added a peppy soundtrack, put in 1-second transitions, and uploaded it to my channel on Vimeo. Perhaps you will get some ideas by viewing this short and sweet video.
