Are you on The Vine? It's that super cool, fun little Twitter app that let's you take 6 second snippets and videos you can share with your friends. And since the team at Andrea Eppolito Events loves all things "behind the scenes" we were super excited about this new technology. I'll admit, we went a little crazy at first! And when we got home we had to wonder - what exactly we should do with 62 6-second vines and video clips?!? Then one night it hit me...I need to refine the Vine!
My initial thought was to pull together the top ten 6 second clips to do a little one minute movie that would walk you through the entire day and allow you to watch the wedding unfold through my eyes. I've been playing with it for the last few weeks now, and the videos are fast, easy and straight forward. I shared a few on my YouTube page that you can see here and I was really having a good time throwing them together late at night when my insomnia kicked in. But....
As I looked back on them I started to really miss some of the fancy elements that make these quick videos feel so special. Maybe an actual trailer that featured "I Do in Two (Minutes)" would let me show more...
So off to iMovie I went! I dropped it into the trailer maker on iMovie. It made it fancy and emotional, but you can't hear what's happening in the clips. But was it too quick? Maybe "I Do In Two (Minutes)" would let me show more...So I played with that for a bit. It was definitely more polished in terms of effects, but I have less control over the actual clips.
Which is better?!?!? I just don't know! What do you think?
Nothing - and I mean NOTHING - takes the place of professional photos and videos. But I love playing with the latest and greatest technology to create amateur wedding videos. So far sharing my projects has been fun - I hope you enjoy them, as much as I like making them! Perhaps you'll be inspired to create something all your own and share it with us!
