Today is a day of great rejoicing in central Oklahoma: It sleeted overnight and schools are closed. Although it technically isn’t much of a “snow day,” we haven’t had many chances to go sledding the past few years so Rachel and I headed out to seek a winter adventure this morning. I shot some video with my iPhone5, and used the “trailer project” feature of iMovie for iPhone for the first time to create the following winter classic, “Sleet Sledding.” I uploaded this with the free YouTube Capture app in 720p. Enjoy!
The “trailer project” feature of iMovie for iPhone lets you choose a theme and customize it, specifying the types of clips you should insert for each part of the trailer storyboard.
I really like how it shows you (with a yellow line) which parts of your videos you’ve used already, so you won’t have any repeated footage in your final production.
I initially thought I’d try using a different video editing app, other than iMovie, to piece together some of our videos from today. An iMovie trailer proved to be even better, however, and the final product exceeded my expectations.
I love using Apple’s creative digital tools.
Where’s the “iMovie for Android with movie trailer capabilities,” you ask? I don’t think that app exists yet. Will someone develop it? Maybe. But since they haven’t, why would anyone with a desire to create media (who has the means, of course) use any smartphone other than an iPhone?
