NOW that we all have a video taking app on our phone (last week’s iSupr8, for example) and I’m pretty sure you bring your smartphone with you wherever you go. It’s about time that we put those apps to good use. We can’t let your app just sit in your smartphone and waste precious bits and bytes and consume digital space there.
It will be short and sweet this week. I’ll set you up with a few suggestions for a short video project that you can shoot for yourself. So let’s get it started.
There’s a ton of little “scenes” that you can capture at your office. When you’re at your desk, imagine yourself to be an ant crawling up and down and around your desk. Try and capture that kind of perspective with your video. Go low. Go creepy crawly.
This can’t be any more dynamic that it can. Your school’s just filled with a lot things happening all at the same time. Your classmates laughing at some private joke, another classmate hunkering down on their chair to sleep, or you writing down something on your notebook. Get creative. See beyond the ordinary.
Can’t this be any more obvious? How about making a short video of your wife cooking dinner? Ask her to be your cooking show host and ask her to explain what she’s cooking step by step while you record everything from your perspective. Or how about take videos of your kids playing or them goofing around with you? There’s a lot to be recorded there. And you can add those videos to your family’s album of memories too.
So there, three common places that we all frequently go to every single day of our lives. It’s hard to believe that those are just under our noses, eh? But really, some of the best videos out there are shot with a camera phone recording everyday scenes that we tend to just let us pass by.
Have you ever thought about stopping by the side of the road just to record the sun set? Ain’t it glorious? I bet it is!
Go whip out those camera phones and launch your video takings app. It’s time to record life! (Sunnex)
