User Stories: How One Professional Video Creator Is Using Magisto

Kyle RobertsIf you’ve been following our weekly Top Movies roundups, then you may have noticed that one user made our list for the past two weeks in a row. Kyle Roberts is a videographer, editor, director and stop motion extraordinaire, but despite the fact that he’s well-versed in the art of manual video editing he’s also been doing a lot of cool stuff with Magisto.

We introduced Kyle to Magisto last month. We’ve found that people who are used to editing their own videos on a professional level often have doubts about using automatic video editing services and Kyle tells us, “When I first heard about the app I was skeptical. But,” he says, “the very first time I tried Magisto out it worked great! I’m continually impressed with the intuitiveness of the app and can’t wait to see it continue to evolve.”

“The thing I love about this app is that no matter what your background/interests are you can find uses for it. As a filmmaker a lot of time I don’t have time to edit behind the scenes clips. So instead of just using Instagram or Vine’s 10-15 second short clips, this is an amazing alternative that provides life to the footage by adding effects, transitions, and music with very little effort on my end!”

We’ve really enjoyed watching the Movies Kyle’s been making, which include everything from travel to behind-the-scenes looks at music video shoots, so we thought we’d share them with you!  Check them out below, and check out more of Kyle’s work on his production company’s website.
