For soon-to-be brides, planning a wedding that you want your guests to remember for a long time is neither fun nor cheap. Even with the help of an event planner, there are still too many details to look into. Who will make up the entourage? What will be the color theme? What will be the cake’s motif and flavor? What will your bridal bouquet be made of? And: What kind of bridal favors will you give away? Dust-gathering figurines are so medieval and unimaginative. Compact disks filled with your favorite love songs can be too sappy for other people’s tastes and are already impractical in this age of downloaded MP3s. Photo booths can be fun, but can there be anything “funner” and more innovative?
How about a short movie, book-style? Have you ever heard of how animation studios make cartoons by using a sequence of drawings on different sheets of paper that, when flicked through rapidly, make it look like one moving image? Now get a little more “hi-tech” – instead of drawn images, imagine people shown in a sequence of still pictures that, when flipped through rapidly enough, simulates a short movie.
Enter the world of flipbooks, where the possibilities for fun for both you and your guests are endless. Make your wedding truly something memorable and entertaining for your guests with flipbooks as Philippine wedding souvenirs.
Give them a “movie” or two of you or your loved one’s pre-nup, or one of the “you may kiss the bride” moment, or that wacky “friends of the bride” group shot, or even all of the above, all in movie-like style. Review your “movie” to your own discriminating taste before having it printed and bound in a flipbook with your own customized designs. Better yet, have your guests line up, solo or as a group, at the booth for their own videos. Scenes can border on the kooky, the romantic, or the serious. Pretend to be someone or somewhere else with the use of props or by choosing a different background. Whatever sparks the imagination! No matter what the action or scene is, you can be guaranteed that guests will be burying their noses in their own Manila flipbooks in no time, or having fun flicking through others’.
Take that photo booth experience a notch higher. Have pictures come to life on their own! It only needs a small area to set up the booth, which can print out as much as 45 to 50 flipbooks in an hour. And all it takes is a seven-second video and a couple more minutes of waiting time before, voila! Less than three minutes to turn your video into a flipbook that is printed, cut and bound on the spot!
Truly instant fun, yet you can be sure that in remembering your wedding, guests will have something to talk or think about and enjoy looking at for a long time.
Skitbooks is mentioned in the Garnier Pure Active feature from Malaya!
They had their pictures taken at a not-your-ordinary photo booth to create the Skitbooks Flipbooks. The series of still pictures are printed on separate sheets of paper, then stacked together. And when flicked through rapidly, they give the impression of moving images.
It’s that time of the year again when the company holds its big event for its employees – whether celebrating the company anniversary, the birthday of a big boss, or even Christmas. As usual, the company wants something to give to guests and employees, giveaways that can also form part of the overall marketing strategy as they get into the hands of the recipient. But simply handing out party favors can be so blah, especially with the usual pens, mugs, or umbrellas – practical, but boring.
Put the entertainment in giving and receiving: make a Skitbooks booth a part of the festivities. Have employees and guests star in their own short video-turned-flipbooks. All it takes is a small area where they can act, and for technicians to set up the video and printing equipment. After recording the action, the technicians will convert the video into a series of pictures which they will print, cut and bind into a flipbook on the spot, for a waiting time of about two minutes!
Skitbooks flipbooks will have guests and employees raring to take their turn to star in their own videos. They can role-play on their own, or join up with others for some improvised acting, complete with their own props. They can even execute some wacky dance steps! With Skitbooks, they can replay the fun in pictures by flicking through their own flipbooks, just like a regular cartoon, but this time with pictures instead of drawings.
Having an awarding ceremony? Make the awardees have that wacky souvenir “moving shot” with that plaque, trophy, or even those thousand-peso bills. Flipbooks can be as personalized as the company would want it. Go for that red carpet feel by having the company logo as background. Skitbooks can also replicate that party backdrop or theme on the book cover for that overall custom-feel.
With Skitbooks, hit not just two but four birds with one stone. Break the ice among the employees, guests and even the big bosses by having them act in groups. It will surely keep the conversation interactive and interesting as they take a look at each other’s books. Owners will also be sure to keep their own flipbooks to look through every now and then, and even show them to other people they know – making it a truly unique marketing tool for the company.
One thing for sure: corporate events need not be stiffly formal and dull. Skitbooks can add a little more uniqueness and creativity to the party by letting the guests have a good time themselves and take home the memory of the fun they had.
