Quick tips for unforgettable video collages.
Commemorate special moments with a video collage and use these pro tips to capture the memory perfectly.
A video collage is a wonderful way to chronicle and share happy memories. Whether you’re reminiscing on a fun vacation with friends, creating a birthday greeting, end-of-year recap, or celebrating a special milestone, a video collage preserves a special memory. And anyone with a smartphone can do it.
Follow these editing tips to make your own video collage on an iPhone or Android.
Pick your clips.
Plan out what you want to recap in your video collage and the tone you want to set. Then go through your iPhone videos and pick out the ones that fit into your narrative and idea.
For example, if you’re creating a video collage for friends to remember a trip you took together, you probably want to set a fun tone. Pick the best videos that illustrate what a good time you had. Consistent footage that matches the theme helps to weave a compelling collection of memories that evoke feelings had in the moment.
Edit with intention.
- Heighten the feeling with music and audio. Choose a song that has personal meaning to your video collage. Maybe it’s music that evokes nostalgia for a particular time in your past. Sometimes the audio in the video can speak for itself. When you’re editing your video collage’s sound, you can fade out the music and amplify dialogue or one-liners that help set the stage.
- Add photos and text: Intersplice your video footage with some good still photos, text commentary, or other creative techniques that make for an engaging multimedia presentation.
- Keep the segments short: Video collages are special because they highlight brief moments in time. Capture the fleeting nature of these moments —and heighten the sense of action — by editing together short video clips.
