Want to make your own movie but can’t be arsed with the faff of downloading editing software and learning how to use it? We hear you. Lucky then that Red Bull have a quick and easy fix for you with their new Flow app for iPhone and Android phones.
It basically stitches together user-edited clips so you can share them with your buddies. As the dude that made the app, Jonathan Attenborough, explains:
We were tasked to build Red Bull Flow to be the best way for BMXers and Skateboarders to share their tricks. Individual clips are filmed and uploaded with the app. Clips are tagged with the rider, trick and spot. The app then creates edits by stitching the clips together around a tag – which we call Flows. It’s pretty exciting because the app can make lots of different films depending on the tags.
From Saturday 3rd August Red Bull is inviting the public to use the Flow app with users asked to upload films of between 15-to-20 clips using the tag “Your name + PhoneEdit” (eg: if your name is Jane Bloggs, the tag would be JaneBloggsPhoneEdit). Three of the best filmers – as decided by pro BMXer Kriss Kyle – will then earn a unique, Red Bull-inspired day-out at one of the UK’s biggest BMX events at Birmingham’s NEC on 29th September.
