A bit of fun…

Having a quick play with my new Trade Me purchase, which is a tripod for a smart phone. I do not believe that I will ever 1 Minute iPhone Movie Challengefind a better use of  $7.50.

I have always admired the image within a stop motion clip where life is hectic for all but a few. The class came up with this idea for the film and as the Spiderman Encyclopedia is one of those all-absorbing, lose yourself in time, kind of books, it was the perfect inspiration for our key actor.  So here is a clip – slightly staged – of the first 10 minutes after lunch where SSR is the first port of call.

1 Minute iPhone Movie Challenge

This was a sort of geeky challenge I set myself on Easter Sunday, to take my money and place it where my mouth is. I sing the praises of the multi disciplinary iPhone, although truth be known a good Android would do the same, and opportunity presented itself.
It was a day for a Wanau road trip over to the sea at Haast, so my challenge was the one minute movie of the trip. Using iMovie, iLapse and my ukulele to record the sound the finished product.

Next time I think it could be a documentary or maybe a daughter directed drama, but with the same premiss – 100% phone created, filmed/edited in one day and lasting one minute exactly.
