I was trying to distract Juniper from those swollen gums that are bothering her (teething is the pits!), and we wound up having an impromptu dance party yesterday. I used this 8mm vintage camera app on my iPhone to give the video that vintage Super8 look after I shot it. I've been a lover of those grainy Super8 films ever since I saw a few wedding clips on my friend Charlotte's site. Thanks to her, we were lucky to have an authentic Super8 video shot of our wedding, and it's one of my most cherished mementos from the day. I haven't taken too many videos of Juni yet, but I'm hoping to do more now that she's on the move (rolling all the time!) and will be hard to contain soon enough. The 8mm app is easy to use and I love how you can upload previously shot videos. You have a choice of a few different lenses, too.
By the way, Charlotte just re-launched a brand new redesign of her photography site that looks amazing! Is she talented or what?! Go check it out if you like, and you can also peek at our wedding video there.
ps. I didn't expect to ever consider sharing a video of me shown unshowered, sans makeup or contacts, and in the worst shape of my life! But I know many of you are mamas or mamas-to-be and I wanted to share how awesome this app is for making your own little Super8 videos. The focus is on the little lady, I hope :) Also, this was my first go at iMovie. Not too difficult, but I had trouble laying the music over the clip the way I wanted. I hope to get it down soon as I would like to shoot a lot more video of Juni's next 5 months of life.
