Movie Magic with Magisto! #MagistoMoms

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Magisto. I received a promotional code for premium features to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating

I love sharing photos and videos with my family and friends... my smartphone is nearly always with me, and I have found that it really chronicles my daily happenings and that of my children. 

My videos are always rough... I hate editing them. I dislike it because I'm not really all that good at it, honestly. Magisto is a smartphone app (available on iPhones and Android systems), that uses artificial intelligence to create the perfect video. 

I have to say, I was was doubtful when I started the process. I picked 5 photos and 3 videos (you can pick up to 5 photos and 16 videos or 25 minutes of video play), picked my theme and music...then Magisto did the rest. It took a while for them to compile the video (I'd say about 15 minutes, maybe a little less), but I received an email when it was ready. Here's my video!

I love how it turned out... the only thing I didn't like was the shadow that was on Nolyn's eye. It wasn't like that in the original video, and the Magisto video made him look like he had an eye patch! But overall, it was amazing to see everything put together so nicely. 

You can get the Magisto app:

Magisto is also offering some awesome prizes for those who make a video and enter the video by using the #MagistoMoms hashtag in their video's title. Keep reading for more info (and a special promotional code for free downloads further down)!

Magisto has teamed up with multi-platinum selling recording artist and seven-time Grammy nominee Joan Osborne to celebrate Mother’s Day with a new form of music discovery that brings together powerful user-generated video production technology and musical artistry. Joan’s new song “Born To See You Through”, which celebrates her role as a mother, will be featured as a musical selection in the Mother’s Day challenge when participants create their movies that tell “Why I love being a Mom” or “Why I love my Mom.”

From now until May 13, 2013, all Magisto-created movies that include the hashtag #MagistoMoms in their title will be entered to win special prizes! Videos will be shared and available for viewing on a Mother’s Day-themed social scrapbook that will be hosted on the Magisto website. The users whose Movies get the most Likes on Magisto will win the following prizes:
  • Grand Prize: Samsung Galaxy Note Tablet
  • Second Place: Joan Osborne's new CD + handwritten lyrics to 'Born to See You Through'
  • Runners up: 50 runners up will receive 1-year Magisto Pro upgrades
Magisto's Mother's Day challenge coincides with the first annual Mother's Day benefit concert hosted by Osborne with special guests Ollabelle and Elizabeth Mitchell at NYC's City Winery on May 12th. This concert will help benefit these two charities: Somaly Mam Foundation and Save the Children.

 The Magisto team will be at the concert to create and share videos of the special evening and the company will make a donation to the two charities. Osborne’s song will be available for listening on the Magisto site and available for digital sale at with proceeds going to both charitable organizations.  You can watch the Magisto Joan Osborne created here:
