As a father, and like many parents in this digital age, the amount of photos and video of my children that I am capturing is simply overwhelming and piling up in my phone. I often think, what will ever happen to all of this content? So much is being recorded, but very little of it is being told with it. There are outlets like social media and scrapbooking, but they are limited in terms of complete storytelling. My quest was to find a way to better tell our stories.
As a producer, I naturally decided to create a movie using the techniques that I have been using for years. I needed a way to tie all of that content together, so I did what I do quite often with my documentary productions, I set up an interview with my children to narrate through the content. As I interviewed them, I realized what I was missing in all of those images, their thoughts. And just like that, Movikit was born.
Movikit will guide creators (with smartphones) to make their own movies, or you can do it as a family project. Tell stories about your life every year, or over a period of years. Make one about this year's vacation or document a grandparent's life. Through a fun illustrated guide, key production tools and video tips, we hope to educate on the fundamentals of production for beginners, and inspire to create richer, personal, home entertainment. Now, let's get your movie rolling!
