Birthday Short Film

We’ll make a short film with important pictures & video clips taken during your/your loved one’s birthday.

Your birthday movie can look professional and attractive with effects, transitions, animation, text, music, etc.

Why not let us create a short film for your birthday to share on social networks & to preserve it for posterity?

Typically birthday videos are just 1 to 3 minutes long, but short videos make a better impact with viewers.

We’ll convert your media into an impressive short movie that you can proudly share everywhere.

The above-embedded video is just a sample – your video will be customised just for you.

If you are in Chennai, Bangalore, Pondicherry (South India) or nearby, we can come to your birthday party and shoot the video for you. Even if or otherwise, you can arrange photographers locally (or) you can shoot the photos/ videos on your mobile/ personal cameras and send it to us over the net.

We are looking forward to partner with photographers around the world. You shoot, we do creative video editing.

DJI Tello: 5 Things Required to Make it the Best First Drone

DJI Tello manufactured by Ryze is an excellent “Toy” Drone Camera that is available for under $100 USD on major online retail sites. While the drone may be OK for kids wanting to have fun, I think it needs the following features to make it useful to small filmmakers and videography enthusiasts.

  1. 1080p Camera (Vs. 720p camera currently available). The drone is not going to be kept on a Tripod and it can fly up to 10 meters. A 720p camera is just not going to be sufficient for any serious video shoot, especially as it’s going to be moving frequently.
  2. SD Card Holder for recording videos on the drone. Currently, the videos are being streamed to the phone and recorded on the phone. This affects the footage quality as video streaming over WiFi results in data loss and pixellation.
  3. GPS. Although the built-in visual sensors do a decent job of positioning and steady hovering, landing, etc. GPS is required for precise controls and smooth movements.
  4. 100 meters height. A drone should at least fly to a height of 100 meters, right? The current height limitation of 10 meters is a little too low.
  5. Joystick remote control. I am always wary of anything that is dependent on the phone or computer, especially for flying. Besides, a joystick is easier and more intuitive for manoeuvring.

Of course, DJI/Ryse might want to increase the price slightly for giving us these features, and I am OK with it. My only request to them is – keep the drone under 250 grams so that we would not need any licenses or registration to fly it.

I really like the DJI Tello and how it enables everyone to own and fly their own drone cameras. Just that they need to push their engineering a little bit more to make this product a huge success.

I am waiting 🙂

BTW, here is the DJI Tello Promo Video –

A Creative Way to Wish Happy Birthday

As you may know, we make videos for special occasions and marketing purposes here at wowsuper.net. Recently, one of our customers asked us to make a video to wish his wife on her birthday. So as usual, I asked him to send over some photos and some text he wanted to include.

But he had different plans. He said he would send a few short videos and I had to stitch them all together into a creative video along with beautiful effects and transitions. I said OK.

After a week, with just two days to go for her birthday, I was wondering why I had not received the videos yet. Just then, he sent me a mail with a Google Drive download link.

As I opened the web page, I found around 50 videos. I wondered what these videos could contain – that too fifty of them! So I downloaded the videos in my system and started playing them one by one.

All the videos were the same.

They were all from their friends and family members wishing her happy birthday and sharing some fond memories and impressions about her.

So basically he had requested many people to speak and record their wishes and impressions in their cell phone cameras and send it over. I stitched them all together to make a creative surprise video wishing happy birthday from so many near and dear. I wish I could show you the video – but since it’s private, I can’t.

Don’t you think it’s a great way/idea to wish someone on their birthday? Very thoughtful, lot of efforts, and very effective 🙂

You might want to try something similar to wish someone you cherish. I am sure they’ll cherish the video for years to come.

Of course, you can send the individual videos to me via the contact form on the homepage (click) and I’ll add the magic required to make it look great.

3D Photo Slideshow (3D Model: Great Wall of China)


Here is a 3D Photo Slideshow Video made by us with wedding photos set around a 3D model (Great Wall of China). Making this video involves creating the 3D model, placing the photos in 3D space, lighting the 3D space, and animating the camera – pan, zoom and rotate.

These objects and photos are set around true 3D space, instead of simulating 3D using 2D animation. Hence, the 3D modelling and animation possibilities are infinite. Since 3D rendering takes many hours even for a video spanning a few seconds, it’s not practical to expect a video with many photos.

Practically, per event/occasion, up to 25 photos could be placed in 3D space and animated. These videos are not a replacement to regular event editing/mixing videos, but these are meant to be created with just a few important photos primarily for sharing the video on social networks. So it has to be short.

If you are a wedding photographer/videographer do contact us by filling up the enquiry form on the homepage, if you want your customers photos to be placed around a 3D model and animated. We have ready made models for Seven Wonders of the World, but custom models can also be prepared – provided sufficient time is available.

Have a look at Wedding Slideshows category for pricing and further details.

Photo Slideshow set in 3D Space around a 3D Model (Taj Mahal)

Here is a short photo slideshow we made with our photos set in 3D space around a 3D model (Taj Mahal). The camera moves from one photo to another (while pausing briefly in front of each) while revolving around the 3D model, creating a true 3D environment experience. The 3D model is exposed bit by bit, creating interest in the viewers minds before getting exposed fully during the last ten seconds.

3D Photo slideshows are new and different. Regular photo slideshows may have multiple effects, transitions, etc. but chances are, people in your circle may have seen most of them already. If you want to really surprise people, creating 3D photo slideshows with real 3D models and 3D sets is a good idea.

This 3D Taj Mahal model is the first in our series of ‘Seven Wonders of the World’ Photo Slideshows. You can see a listing of the seven wonders of the world from here. 3D sets for each wonder will be created and your photos will be placed and shown around each wonder to create the final photo slideshow.

The camera will move from one wonder of the world to another (containing your photos). This makes them see your photos being around all the wonders of the world. We can also place your photo cut-out (instead of full photos) in order to make people feel that you were virtually present at all the locations.

This is the next best thing you can do to travelling across the world and taking photos in front of each wonder, don’t you think?

The photos can be from any special occasion. They could be your marriage photos, anniversary/birthday celebration photos, or travel photos, or photos taken during any other ceremony.

If you want to make a photo slideshow with your photos placed around the seven wonders of the world in real 3D space, visit the homepage and fill up the contact form.

Photography Portfolio: Showcase your Photos as a Video with Glitch Effects

So you’ve taken some cool photos and you want to showcase your best photos using a photography portfolio slideshow video. While you want the focus on your photos for most of the time, you also want to use some effects to make the video look professional and attractive. What to do?

Welcome to Glitch Video Effects.

For example, look at the above video. I have kept the photos almost stationary or used simple effects like zoom in/out for the first four seconds of each slide. This enables the viewers to see the photo clearly without any distraction.

During the last one second for each slide, I have used the glitch effect. Glitch refers to the quick shaking of a part of the photo, entire photo or even the text, for a very short time. It makes for a great visual effect and I thought it would be useful in a photography portfolio slideshow video because the photos are going to be almost still for a long time. At the very least, it will wake up the viewer due to the sudden movement 🙂

Besides, there are advantages of using a video to showcase your photos. For one, you can just send a simple link instead of a bunch of huge files or link to files. Second, it’s impossible to download the individual photos from a video – so there is no way of misusing it without your knowledge. Third, since most photographers just send photos, by sending a video, you’ll create a professional impression on the client – especially if you include an intro & a contact details page. With a video, you can also decide the order in which the viewer views your photos and the duration for each.

Even if you are just a hobbyist photographer, it’s still a good idea to create a portfolio video with your best photos. It will be useful to send/show to people when they ask what’s your hobby or what you’ve been doing lately…

Glitch effect is not something you see in regular slideshows… So you can be sure that your photo slideshow is unique and different. It will definitely make a mark in viewer’s minds.

You Want Animated GIF Made with Your Video/Photos?

via GIPHY

If you want an Animated GIF made with your video or photo in it, we can do it for you. Have a look at an example GIF we made with an exercise video. The two cartoon characters, trees, and the green banner with text were made by us and superimposed on the video. We then converted it into a loopable GIF which we uploaded to Giphy. Of course, you can directly share it on Facebook or Whatsapp, if you wish, as both these platforms support GIF formats.

GIF is a looping video format and is short (usually less than 6-sec). It does not contain sounds/music. We can add any text or message that you might want, but voice-over is not supported. So think creatively – you can use Customized GIFs to wish people on your network during a festival or you can make one as a birthday/anniversary gift and surprise a loved one. You can even make one to convey your point/message effectively. There are endless applications for GIFs.

Please note that we can create only simple animations, however, we’ll try our best to customize the animation based on your need or imagination.

Price: $10 USD (Rs. 600) per animated GIF. (6-sec max)

How to Order: Submit your details in the Order/Enquiry form on the homepage or email wowsuper.net@gmail.com directly. We’ll get back to you by reply email. You can pay via Paypal after the GIF/Video is delivered to you.
