The video shooting/editing apps I used in the past were usually slow and overloaded. Editing, adding, and rearranging clips almost always crashed those apps, so for a while I gave up on video apps and just put my films together in iMovie.
But then I found Spark Camera, and it is everything all those other apps were not. It is a beautiful, elegant app. The tools are simply laid out but incredibly powerful. Uploading AND downloading a video is lightning fast.
I love documenting daily life, and I am in love with making slice-of-life films in this app. Over the past few months, I’ve captured moments like my best friend’s ring sizing, meals with friends, nice days out, leisurely walks.
In other news, I also love reading Issue 4 of Through the Gate, which publishes fantastical poetry. It’s a short issue, and one to savor.
