Creating Magic with Magisto Movie Creation App! ~ #DisneySMMC

While I attended the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration Event in New York, I was under no obligation to post about my experience. All opinions and views expressed are 100% my own.

Earlier this week I headed to New York City for the #DisneySMMC On the Road Event. There were so many great guest speakers and inspiring panelists, including multimedia journalist Victoria Lim. She gave us some great tips on maximizing our mobiles, multimedia interviewing, photo and video editing, and creating quick multimedia for our blogs and brands. One of the apps for multimedia she gave us a demonstration on was Magisto. Seeing how easy and simple it was to use, I immediately knew I had to have this app!

Seeing how easy it was to put together a pretty awesome little movie in 5 minutes, I decided to try my hand at the app and make my own quick video using photos I took earlier that day at the event:
