MiniEpic Review – creating a video birthday invitation!


Hi, I haven’t recorded anything for my YouTube channel for quite a while. I’m hoping to change that soon and record a few more things. I’m taking advantage of while Autumn’s taking a nap at the moment to record a review of Mini Epic for you. So this is a new website that allows you to create invitations for parties with a customised video, which is really cool. So, I’m just going to through making a vide…video of me creating an invitation for Autumn’s first birthday party next month so that you can see how quick and how easy it is. It’s £9.99 for 30 invites, but you can add more guests for 10p each. And once you’ve sent the email out to your guests you can track if they’re coming, or if they’re not coming You can also send reminders, so that takes some of the pain out of chasing people up to find out if they’re coming or not. And if there’s any updates as well…you can send those out as well. So that’s really handy! At the moment, there’s the option of kid’s birthdays or adult birthdays, but I’m sure that there’ll be more types of invitation soon. In just the month that I’ve been looking at this website there’s been quite a few types of different invitation videos added to it. So, as I said, I’m making an invitation for Autumn’s first birthday party. So, I’m going to go to kid’s birthdays. As you can see, there’s quite a few designs already. I’m going to choose rainbow party. Okay. So, there’s a few fields for us to fill out. So, I’m going to name the party ‘Autumn’s 1st Birthday Party’. It’s going to be held in the village hall. Erm, I’m just going to put…yeah, make up an address! When you want to put the date of your party in, a calendar pops up. Or you can type it in manually, if you prefer. That’s going to be on Autumn’s birthday. It’s a similar kind of thing with the start time as well. You can either select it from the list, using the arrows provided if it’s a different time from the ones listed. Or you can type it out manually. This party is for Autumn. And again, you can adjust that with arrows if you want to. This is probably the most time consuming bit, choosing a photo. So, I’ve actually got a photo ready of Autumn that I want to use. And I can adjust this if I want to, by zooming it in and out. And rotating it if I wish, as well. And I’m just going to move her face, so that it’s in the circle there. And that means that it’ll be in that kind of circle on the invitation. At the moment, it can be difficult to make sure that pictures have the face in that circle. It’s something that I’ve brought up with them, and they’re fixing bugs at the moment. Obviously, the website is quite new So hopefully that’ll be something that’s ironed out quite soon. But in the meantime, you can just do what I did and use Paint or another program to adjust the picture so that it’ll be in the right place. Okay…so I’m happy with where that is. So I’m just going to click confirm photo. And now we can preview the video! So, you can see in the corner that’s uploading. And in just a moment, it’ll come up with another little window. Like so! So it’s just creating it and loading it. It says it may take up to 60 seconds but it hasn’t taken that long for me when I’ve tried it so far. So, fingers crossed it’ll load soon. There we go. So we’ve got a sweet little tune! And Autumn’s face in there. That’s cute! I like those butterflies. And there we go. There’s all the main information there about the party as well. And Autumn’s little face! Lovely.
