I don’t have to tell you that our kids are growing up WAY too fast. It’s one of those bitter-sweet things about being a parent. While we take joy in their new accomplishments and do everything we can to help them grow, there’s something about those memories from when they were young that just tug at the heart strings and make us secretly want to invent some sort of magical potion to keep them young forever.
One of the ways we capture and preserve their youth is through photos and videos. I often look back at these forms of media and it just amazes me how much has changed. My oldest will soon be hitting “double digits” as he calls it and one of my favourite video’s of him is from when he was just 3 years old. I was recording him while we built a gingerbread house together and I was asking him questions. His answers make me laugh every single time I watch it but I also regret not taking more interview-style videos with him. He is such a funny and smart kid.
I was really excited when I heard about the OneDay app. This app is great because it allows you to make quick video clips using preset Q&A themes, and then it combines the clips into one professional quality MP4 movie complete with music. It’s incredibly easy!
The OneDay app is currently available for the iPhone, we downloaded it on my son’s iPad Mini and it worked great on that device.
Step 1: CHOOSE A TOPIC
There are dozen’s to choose from based on who is being interviewed. Babies/Toddlers, Kids or even Parents! Each one contains 10 questions, you can pick and choose which ones to add to your video.
Step 2: RECORD SHORT VIDEO CLIPS
Point your device, ask the question and hit record to get your clip. Each clip is saved individually so you can go in and delete or re-record any clips as needed.
Step 3: REVIEW YOUR VIDEO
The OneDay App automatically compiles your video, adding background music and visual intros for each question. It literally takes seconds!
Step 4: UPLOAD AND SHARE
The great thing about the OneDay app is that it is saved on a website with a dedicated URL. You can simply share that link with whoever you like. Only those with the link can view it and if they right click on the video, they have the ability to download it to their own computer/device. Great for sharing with grandparents and other family members!
Here is how one of our videos turned out:
So easy and something I will get a kick out of watching for many years to come!!
