A fan of startups, entrepreneurship, getting things done faster, penning the occasional blog post, taking photos, designing, listening to good music and making lurrrve.

    This really is far too cool and an idea I hadn’t even considered. What you ask? The idea that magazine spreads of today could become mini movies of tomorrow.

    Consider your standard woman’s magazine with a four page spread “How to Keep Your Man From Having a Wandering Eye”. With devices like the iPad and other tablets (or booklets) to come, these spreads could result in awesome short video representations that combine both video and text to create something truly engrossing.  Incorporate advertising and product placement into it and you’re onto a winner I say.

    What you see below is demonstration put together by Alexx Henry and Directors Cory Strassburger and Ming Hsiung for a motion magazine cover and feature spread for Viv Mag – an all digital magazine. More info here but what you need to do is ensure you watch it till at least the 2min mark, and if you’re keen, watch the making of too.

    This really is very impressive.
