Are You The Next Steven Spielberg?
We saw it over and over again during the holidays. A teenage boy at his family’s Christmas gathering, who apparently only cares about looking at his iPhone. The TV ad–titled, “Misunderstood,” has a very touching surprise ending. It turns out that the young man was recording video of the various activities surrounding the family’s celebration, and surprises them on Christmas morning by turning on the TV right in the middle of them opening their gifts, to present the family with a video “gift” of his own. It was a very moving ad, with an emotional mom hugging her supposedly “misunderstood” son.
If you have a teenager with an iPhone or iPad, the Victoria Public Library–as part of their “Teen Tech Talks” events–is offering teens a chance to play with iPads, and the iMovie app. iMovie allows i-device users to create amazingly professional-looking videos quickly and easily. It has many features, and could possibly interest your son or daughter in a career in video film making! This Saturday, January 4th from 1 to 3pm, teens will have the opportunity to create an “ad” for the Library, or document a tour of the building. Videos created will possibly be posted to victoriapubliclibrary.org and Facebook. Visit the website, or call the Library at (361) 485-3302.
