image A Hidden Gem: iOS Photo Movie

We had a great family day out on Sunday up at Bolam Lake just outside of Newcastle. The sun shone, the sky was blue and the kids had a great time.  I sat down for my usual scroll through the photos, favouriting all the ones I would use in a movie.  Then, I remembered the quickest way to make movies: using iOS Photo inbuilt movie maker. By selecting photos and videos from the camera roll, I could instantly make a video of the day.  30 seconds later I had this movie.

If you are like me, then you love a good movie to capture memories.  I can often make a movie a week of my class working. Usually, it’s to cover practical and creative work or a process or project that leads to an outcome. My weapons of choice are Apple Clips (which I will post about soon), iMovie and the great Quik by GoPro.  All make beautiful movies with great titles, soundtracks and features.  But not everyone has time to make these movies.  These movies are so easy but so effective. So the next day I made one for my class to go onto our class Twitter and school Facebook accounts. So here is a quick how-to guide:

Give it a shot. It’s a great way to share learning and events in no time at all. Quick win all round.
