What creative projects have you completed on your Apple gear?
I’d love to read about (and see/hear) any creative projects that MPU listeners have created using their Apple gear. It could be anything; a photo, a book, a song, a video, a web site, a game, or whatever. Show us what you made and tell us a bit about how you made it.
Please share your creations here!
For my own part, my most recent creative project was inspired by a couple of things:
- The news that Voyager 2 has entered inter-stellar space
- The fact that Apple created their recent iPad Pro advertisement videos completely on the iPad Pro itself
The Voyager 2 news inspired me to write a poem about the awe-inspiring journey of Voyager 2, and I had the idea to write it from the perspective of Voyager 2 itself - I wondered what it might thinking out there on its own in inter-stellar space, doing its duty on behalf of human-kind.
The Apple iPad Pro ad campaign inspired me to try to turn that poem into a song, and then a video using only the iPad Pro.
Anyway, you can hear the song on YouTube here:
The Ballad of Voyager 2
The main apps I used were Drafts for the poem/lyrics, Garageband for the song, LumaFusion for the video, and Safari/Shortcuts/Dropbox to capture the robotic voice clips and the video snippets. It may not be the greatest song/video ever, but I do feel quite satisfied that I managed to make it all on a 10.5” iPad Pro over the course of just a few hours.
It’s amazing to think that the iPad Pro probably has around 2 million times more computing power than Voyager 2! So when comparing a trivial song to a robotic voyage out into the cosmos, I think it’s pretty obvious which has the better achievement per computing cycle ratio.
Anyway, what creations have you produced with your Apple gear?
