What's it about?
Kids can upload videos and photos, choose a theme, and select a song from about a dozen pop hits or their own libraries to create a MAGISTO movie. The site uses artificial intelligence and analyzes speech, camera motion, and other elements to select key emotional moments from videos; kids can title their movies, and, only a few minutes after everything is uploaded, they'll receive an e-mail with a link to their finished films. Movies are automatically private; users can make them public, send the URL to friends, or share them on social media.
Is it any good?
Talk to your kids about ...
- Families can talk about how visual style choices affect the overall message. Does the Roaring Twenties option invoke a different mood than Love or other filters? Does it help display or detract from the information you're trying to share?
What kind of information is easier to explain using both pictures and words instead of only images or text?
- Magisto movies are private by default, but kids can easily share them through Facebook or other social media sites. What kinds of problems could come from publicly posting a movie you made? Use our Social Networking Tips as a guide to discuss social-media safety concerns with your child.
