I heart.... flipbooks





So in my quest for generating ideas for MY wedding... I came across FlipClips... as many of you are aware, we are planning our wedding around the fact that we were high school sweethearts- and thus we are incorporating many retro elements into the day. We have been struggling with ideas for a creative engagement announcement... and I think that a flipbook is just the answer! How does it work? Go onto the site and upload a 15-30second movie clip... the clips are then converted into still frames (75 frames for 15 seconds)... then pick a cover design and message- and voila! You have yourself a flipbook in the mail. These can also be really great for thank-you's afterwards. Just have your videographer do a 30 second "highlights" edit of the wedding- The possibilities are endless, really....

We are going to take this concept even further by incorporating "flipbooks" on our website as well... Benetton Play allows you to make simple animations from basic drawings- and Flip allows you to combine video, audio, pictures, and drawings to create a multi-media presentation... our website is going to have the "look" of a high school notebook and we'll have little animated doodles on each page.... we'll be making them re-appear on items throughout the wedding such as place cards, menus, etc.... We really do not take ourselves too seriously so I think that it is great for our wedding to reflect that as well....

Good Luck and Happy Planning!
