DAY IN THE LIFE – CREATING TIME CAPSULES IS OPEN

DAY IN THE LIFE – CREATING TIME CAPSULES IS OPEN

The ‘day in the life’ film is my most favourite time capsule project.

This is where you document parts of your day… seeking out your moments.

The more “everyday” the moment, the better… I find.

It’s a chance to record the details that will slowly over time change… you know – preserving the fleeting moments.

Last Sunday we were nearly at the end of our child-free time, as the boys were due back from camp in a couple of days. It’s been quiet without them, we missed them terribly, but also really enjoyed our time alone together.

So I made a simple film of our Sunday – just using photos, put together as a slideshow & stop-motion. Usually my films are full of action, colour and fun. I think this reflects this quiet time, just the two of us – plus, the crazy weather we had that day.

Making films using photos is the first project I encourage participants of my Creating Time Capsules course to make. It’s an easy project to start with, to focus on looking for the moments, to think about storytelling, to look for movement and to practise editing in iMovie. It’s a great transition project into video, if you’re not used to that medium.

Registration for the September round of Creating Time Capsules opens today – so if you’d like to start making your own Time Capsule films, I’d love to guide you through the magic of making them & to have you join the inspiring community that gathers… All the details are here.

    I really love that you’ve captured this time of just the two of you. I’ve never considered doing the “stop motion” look in my videos, but you’ve really inspired me Xanthe!
