If you’re thinking of joining in with “Mini Movies in May” you could start by setting your intentions for what you’d like to create during the month.

I’m a big believer in setting intentions and the power that it can bring.

I recommend finding a little time and writing down what you hope to create, even just an outline of plans

What are your goals? What kind of videos would you like to make? How do you want to FEEL at the end of the month? 

Here are some suggestions of what you can create –

1 – Making a “Scenes From The Weekend” video at some point during the month or push yourself to shoot something for every weekend. Even a 30 second Reel of snippets could be fun.

2 – Shooting one “Day In The Life” or a few of them at different points during the month. Or you could join in during the Handmade Film Making course week between – 8th – 14th May.

3 – Gather a collection of clips each day throughout the month, to put into a “31 days in May” compilation video – Just like my Memory Postcards films.

4 – A mini adventure – Make a video of an activity you’re doing. Could be a day trip to the park? A cup of coffee with a friend? or a day trip exploring somewhere new?

5 – A video portrait of yourself, sharing things you like to do or a portrait of someone else – your family, children or a friend.

6 – Create video around a theme – the seasons, the senses, your home, favourite places, traditions, colours, super 8mm… etc

7 – Or a mix of any of the above or feel free to come up with your own ideas of what videos to make. It’s up to you!

Can you set some other goals?… Is there anything else you would like to achieve? 

Here are some suggestions –

I want to feel confident with the editing process.

I’d love to create videos that will remind me of this time and bring those feelings back.

I’d like to experiment with Reels.

To push myself to shoot even when I don’t feel inspired.

To focus on all the everyday mundane details of my life and make them beautiful.

To try shooting with my camera vs phone.

I’d like to be in my videos so there’s proof of me.

To experiment with different shooting techniques.

To try shooting in both horizontal and vertical video.

To find a balance between capturing the moment and being present.

To capture more conversations and stories from family members or friends.

I’m sure you can think of LOTS MORE…

Hopefully get the idea – Figure out your intentions, so you can make it happen.

ACTION – If you’d like to share one or two things you’d like to make happen this month, you can leave a comment here. There’s something about sharing it that makes us accountable. {But also, if you don’t feel ready to share yet, come back to this post and you’re welcome to keep your goals to yourself, if you’d prefer.}

If you’d like more guidance to start making your own videos – check out my online courses where I share everything you need to get started and inspiration to take you through the whole process and find the love of making films!
