Today we are trying something a bit different called a “5×5 mini movie”.

These little films are 5 shots x 5 seconds each = a 25 seconds long movie. The aim is to tell a story in a very limited time frame and we used our little GoPro, but, this is perfect for any video footage, even your smartphone. Our first try runs to 28 seconds as we added a label at the end.

  • At the week-end we visited Animates, our local pet supermarket to buy our cat food. This 5×5 introduces the store, and the one important thing Animates does for New Zealand kittens and puppies.

      Thanks Austin, we are still learning, this needs focus and we are getting a grip on brief/rapid story telling with video!
