Creating Video on My Sisters Scrapper

Creating Video on My Sisters Scrapper

I’ve had some requests about how we do videos. My husband takes care of the technical stuff. I’m the creative talent, so I’ll let him explain. He promised to keep it short.

Video Setup

We use an iPhone 5s as our video camera. It shoots 1080p HD and does extremely well in low light. That’s important because we only shoot in natural light – the color is more accurate.

A Glif holds the iPhone and attaches to a tripod.

The tripod is a pro model – Vanguard Alta Pro 263AB 100 Aluminum Tripod – with a center post that can be set horizontally, allowing the iPhone to be positioned directly above the scrapbook or card.

We use a condenser microphone – Blue Microphones Snowball USB Microphone (Electric Blue) – to improve the sound quality. It comes in colors besides electric blue. (My wife wanted pink.)

The microphone doesn’t plug directly into the iPhone 5s, so we purchased a Lightning to USB Camera Adapter.

iMovie software is used to produce the final video. It comes free with every Mac.

We use Mac computers. Video production is done on an iMac, but sometimes a MacBook Air.
