These vacation recap videos also let Mike and I remember trips without sifting through hundreds of photos from one weekend. I take a LOT of photos on vacations. Mike hates it as I'm taking them (especially the selfies!) but I know in the end he's happy that we have them to look back on. This way we can stroll down memory lane in a few minutes with a fun, cheery soundtrack.
So without further ado, here's my first ever vacation video!
It recaps our trip to Chapel Hill, which I chatted about in more detail here. I grouped the photos and videos into similar categories, as chronologically as possible. For example, I put all photos of our hotel together and all the photos of the UNC campus together. Trust me, there were way more, but I chose a few photos from each category to get the point across.
I used iMovie to compile everything, which is the default video editing software on my Mac. I actually found the program to be very user-friendly and intuitive. There was definitely a learning curve but most of it was self-explanatory. For the parts I couldn't figure out, I turned to YouTube tutorials (of course!) I used a default audio track from iMovie but I think next time I would like to explore other music options. And I think it would be fun to have a few more videos in there as well.
I hope to make these little videos for future vacations and maybe other milestones in our lives. Have you made a video to remember something special before? If so, send me the link in the comments!
