This summer I fell in love. I am not really a technical sort of gal and rarely use “digital” shortcuts in my life. My “apps” list is very short and mostly focussed on finding out what the weather is like.
When people tell me there is an “easy video app” I look at them like they are insane. It may “seem” easy, but my bet is I will struggle with it.
You can start with the Magisto Platform on your desktop or IOS (or android in BETA) device. Create a free account, and then use code 3chicken to UPGRADE to a premium account for 30 days! This will let you explore even MORE features, and download additional videos and images to make your movie.
Next Choose the images you want to include in your movie. After you get the hang of the app, you will start taking videos snips and pics to work WITH the app, and your movies will become even more amazing. A few things to note about your content inclusions:
1. The app will focus on the CENTRE of an image, so try to have your key focus be in the middle of the pic.
2. Most of the themes do not allow for background noise, but some may – so be aware of that when taking video.
3. Action videos that are short (3-8 seconds) are best to include in the magisto videos. Short and sweet.
Next we choose editing style. The theme you choose here will provide some overlays to your pics and videos. My FAVE is happiness- I love the sepia wash to the images. OMG is also great when sharing videos of the kids! It is lively and fun!
After editing style you have a choice for uploading your own music or using the music provided. They have some GREAT songs on there. The music makes ALL the difference !
After song choice you are left to title your movie and choose a length. Click the button and Magisto takes care of the rest.
I have been using Magisto for making movies around the house since this summer, both for work and branded content as well as for family fun. Both girls have downloaded the app and also love making movies for themselves. . mostly of the chickens of course.
