my new addiction

November 6, 2015

It’s been raining a lot in London lately, which would be a total bummer if I weren’t so addicted to film-making, y’all. I can’t tell you how much fun I’m having playing with video these days, and it’s all thanks to Xanthe’s mini time capsules e-course. Suddenly, a rainy day doesn’t seem like such a bore; it’s an opportunity for Wren and I to go on an adventure and try to capture it.

Given my love for photography, I suppose it’s unsurprising that I should have fallen so hard for this medium. It is, after all, moving pictures, another way of telling our stories, of capturing these precious moments. And set to music to boot… well, what more does a girl need, really?

Having a cute sidekick means that there is always a good reason to take a video. The problem, however, with having such an adorable tiny human in the house and a phone at the ready is that I end up with oodles of footage. And even I have to admit that there is only so much footage of a baby that I can take in one sitting and the likelihood of me watching all that footage ever again is, well, unlikely. Which is why stitching these big chunks together into easily digestible bite-sized pieces is the perfect solution. You’d be surprised at how much life you can pack into a 15-second film (the maximum allowance on Instagram).

Here are just a few of the films I’ve made since taking Xanthe’s course.

I (try to) post a mini time capsule every Monday to my Instagram account. If you are curious about film-making, I highly recommend Xanthe’s course. Perhaps I’ll see you hanging around the #minimondaymovies hashtag someday?

    These are wonderful! My favorite? The toes. Oh, the tiny ones and then the grown-up ones…precious. Also, now I want cookies. So thanks for that. I am curious! Maybe if I could take this course in the summer? No time now. Thanks so much for sharing.
