When I refer to "memory keeping with video", this is the kind of thing I mean (2 minute video):

 

 

It's fun to use the tools and techniques of video journalism to tell little stories about your family and life.

 

And you can do this with nearly any camera (including the video camera built into your phone).

Lol. I watched a few of those memory keeping videos today. So much fun to look back at them. Big smiles and almost some tears of joy. I don't know how to edit and don't want to learn so I watch patiently. I'm waiting for the Harry potter technology so I can embed these onto my layouts!

WTG Aidan! He's got a sharp mind!

I enjoyed this glimpse into your family, thanks Izzy.  Well done Aidan!  I am old enough to remember the Rubik's cube when it first came out but I was probably one of those that peeled the colours off the squares in frustration and reapplied them to get it completed.  Your family will appreciate all the videos you are making and the scrapbooks Noell does - they are very lucky to have parents that care so much! And we appreciate you sharing with us so we can try to do that for our own families!

Thanks for the kind words. :)

 

And I should mention I make these videos about my family for a selfish reason: I really enjoy them.

 

Yes, I think they'll enjoy watching them later, but that's not the real reason I make them, haha.

OMG!! Less than 2 minutes to solve it? That's awesome!! Such a great story and entertaining, storytelling video. Thanks for sharing!! 

 

Side question: I just finished our annual movie/slideshow in iMovie and it's 18min long. I usually upload to Vimeo to share with family (500MB limit for free accounts), but the "Large" version is too big (540MB) and the "Medium" version exports blurry/pixellated (219MB). Any suggestions? Thanks :)

Yes, a couple things that might help:

 

* iMovie's export settings are pretty limited. You might want to try exporting a master video from iMovie and then use a different app to transcode the video for upload to Vimeo.

* Give Handbrake a try for transcoding. It's kind of complex, but you get a lot more control over the resulting file size.

 

Good luck!

Thank you thank you thank you! It worked!! Saved me lots of frustrating trial-and-error exporting :) 

 

btw, finally wandered over to IzzyVideo to check out the iMovie Tutorial (probably should have done that months ago…). It's great so far! I followed the tutorial for exporting the Master version. The Apple Intermediate Codec version automatically makes the Quality "Medium". Is that typical?

That is such a great video! Maybe my next project will be learning video editing.

 

My son (14) recently got into the Rubik's Cube, too. I'm so tired of hearing that clicking sound everywhere he goes! He says Aidan should get a Shengshou Wind cube for his first speed cube :)

He looks like he's about to cry when he didn't beat the record :(

Really fun. I love the documentary style and what a fun way to keep those memories! I thought so too, Melissa. He looked really disappointed!

Aiden is a perfectionist, so yes he was likely about to cry when he didn't beat his record.

 

Thanks for the kind words, everyone! :)

 

I've decided to give an official name to this kind of video: Small Stories. And I posted a whole Small Stories Manifesto here.

Izzy, that video is so awesome!  I bet Aiden would also love a Perplexus maze ball - you should check them out on Amazon.

Fantastic video.  How long would you say the overall process took you to make it?  

 

I had one of those darn things when they first came out.  I could only get one side done....  until I took a screwdriver, popped all the cubes off and snapped them back on correctly!  Hey, where there's a will, there's a way!

Thanks. The video only took a couple hours to make. Maybe an hour of shooting video and an hour of editing. :)

I love this, and I love your "small stories manifesto" post, Izzy!  I need to figure out if Windows Movie Maker will let me do a voiceover - I just can't justify new software yet :)

I've been toying with the idea for a while, but I haven't created a course yet. I have ideas, so maybe now it's time to buckle down and create one. :)
