Game Your Video is a simple and fast way to create stylized videos with fun visual and sound effects using only an iPhone or iPad. The app allows users to capture and edit video seamlessly, while applying effects with ease. Users can explore the available filters and effects, using them during the recording phase or adding them while editing the video. The app also allows users to create customized effects and add music from their mobile device. After editing, adding music, filters, and effects, users can share their creations with the Game Your Video community or privately with friends and family via YouTube or other social networking sites. This app is relatively simple and easy to use and comes recommended for anyone ages 5 and up.



Adapting and adjusting to changing conditions and expectations.

Game Your Video provides an excellent creative tool to practice the Flexibility thinking skill. With a number of customizable features for video creation and editing, users can achieve a variety of results using the same video footage. Often, effects applied to a video can drastically change the presentation, mood, and tone of the video. Users can practice Flexibility by determining which effects, sounds, and filters will create the desired outcome. For example, a video documentary for school would ideally utilize a different presentation method than a horror film or comedy. Users must understand how and when to switch their approach in order to create a cohesive and polished finished product.


Developing a systematic approach for setting and achieving goals.

Creating videos and short films require a fair amount of forethought and planning. Users must ultimately have an idea of how they wish the final product to look, feel, and sound. Like writing a story, users must construct a basic plot line, introducing their characters and a conflict, creating a climax and a satisfying ending for their audience. In addition, users can benefit greatly from planning different shots or shooting locations, as well as what order to film the different scenes in. The more planning a user exercises before beginning their newest film project, the more likely they are to avoid complications and create an accomplished piece of film.


Understanding our own actions, thoughts and feelings.

Film media is an excellent outlet for users to explore their personal passions and hobbies. Whether creating a how-to video for other users on Youtube, or writing a short comedy sketch, film and video provide a platform on which to share a user's personal interests. Planning, filming, and editing videos on a subject of interest is a fun way to expand a users' knowledge in any given subject area while educating or exposing their peers to a subject they find particularly exciting or interesting.
