Family FunHappy Friday, lovely Magistoers!  We’re excited to announce that, starting today, we’re launching a new weekly blog series called Weekend Projects.  Every Friday we’ll share a different project idea that you can use for Movie-making inspiration over the weekend!

Weekend Projects may be something as broad as a theme, like “make a Movie about friendship,” or as specific as a single task, like “make a Movie that features yourself or a friend dancing in the grocery store.”  We may ask you to give us a video-tour of your city, introduce us to your pet or create a fashion video featuring your favorite outfits.  (By the way, if you have any ideas for future Weekend Projects, feel free to share them with us in the comments below!)

Seeing as it’s Easter Weekend, Passover and Spring Break, it’s only fitting that we’ve chosen a family theme for this week’s Weekend Project.  Whether you’ve got special plans with your extended family for the holidays, or are just spending time relaxing with your immediate family, bring along your smartphone or camera, snap a few pictures and shoot some video, and share the experience in a Magisto movie!

Next week we’ll post some of your submissions right here on our blog.  If you want to be sure we can find your Movie, just add #WeekendProject to the title, send us a tweet with #WeekendProject or share your Movie with us on Facebook.

Check out the Movies below for inspiration.  We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
