It is really easy to get caught in a slump with your video editing. For me, nothing is better than watching a really well executed piece of video to inspire me to get creative with my next video editing project. This week, I’ve put together three videos that have inspired me to think outside of the box. Next week we’ll feature some of your choices for creativity inspiring videos, too! Hopefully they’ll get your creative juices flowing!

1. Claymation Time Lapse 

Let’s face it, there is nothing cooler than a well executed time lapse video. This video shows that there are incredible uses for time lapse other than sunrises and sunsets!

2. Bouncy Ball Color Fun 

A teacher showed this video to me as I was just learning how to edit, and it has always been a source of inspiration for me. I think it is beautifully shot and such a simple, yet extreme way to illustrate color in a whole new way. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do! (And make sure to check out their behind the scenes video, too!


3. The Final Cut King 

I recently came across this guy on YouTube and have been totally inspired by his commitment to video editing and creativity. “The King” is a really young guy that puts together really fun (and funny) videos, but also teaches you how to make some of the same effects. What could be more inspirational than a video that actually teaches you something?
