Flipping out

We've seen lots of online chatter about flipbooks in the last year or so - people using video footage, pulling out key frames and making new school versions of the stick-men adventures from the old days.


Nicky - one of our awesome developers - spotted this blog post about creating your own flip books, recently. Using a combination of After effects and Photoshop, Alphonse has set up templates to help you make flipbooks of your own. If you check out the videos, you'll see they work really well.

Now, is it just me, or do they look roughly Business Card sized? As Nicky says, adapting this to the Business Card format, and printing on Green Stock (which is slightly 'flippier') could be perfect. Bind the book nicely at one edge, put back in the nice little holder, and bingo - what a cute memento for newly weds, or a great little keepsake for new parents. Alternatively, as someone suggested in the comments, what a cool, hands-on way to show new people your video work... No cables required.

Off topic... but I just wanted to say, my clients really dig the Moo Cards. I know you guys have business cards now, but I love how small and unique the regular Moo's are. Thanks :)

wow - what a lovely photo! I think for some things, the MiniCards still rule actually. It depends on the situation you're in. Weddings are less 'business' in a way, so I should imagine MiniCards feel more special. You should offer Minicard packs to clients - they could do this for their thank you notes:
