Creativity at its finest

I'm kind of on a video kick this week. I stumbled upon a video tonight that really grabbed my attention. It was a video made entirely out of Instagram photos. What a great way to make a video! This Mexico-based band, The Plastics Revolution, was the first video ever made with Instagram. There were 1,905 still frame photos that were taken on an iPhone and put together to make this video.

I love this idea of using Instagram to make a video. The idea is different, innovative, fun and really makes this band stand out from other bands. Not only is the video cool, but the music is great to listen to, too (even if it is all in Spanish). As a future marketer and public relations practitioner, it is important for me to have great ideas like this. Creativity and implementing it effectively will not only help my organization stand out from the rest, but it will also help me stand out from the rest. Watching this video really helped me to look at social media in a different light. It is ok to use social media the traditional way just like everyone else. Sometimes though, you have to break out of the mold and do something different, and this is the perfect way to do it. I really think that this idea of making video out of still pictures like this is really going to catch on. Especially because a large majority of people who have smartphones, also have Instagram. Making a video like this is as simple as taking some pictures on your phone and uploading them onto a computer and making a movie. It is brilliant!

Watch the video and see for yourself!


  1. Great find Melissa! This is such a cool concept and I actually really liked the song too! While I was watching it, I was thinking how cool it would be for other artists to do this. They could use pictures that their fans send them and somehow use it to produce a music video. People would go nuts over something like that. I'm really glad you shared this video.

  2. This video is really cool! It's impressive that this video is made from individual pictures because it has been put together so nicely. The transitions from picture to picture are barely noticeable.
