7. Distribute > Skin Your Movie

Skin Your Movie

Delivering a completed movie is an accomplishment. If you are distributing your movie online, you can get people to remember your movie from the others by wrapping it in a “skin”—a unique interface that will become a part of your video.

Most audio and video playback applications allow people to create skins that alter the appearance of the given application. However, QuickTime has a unique feature that enables producers to meld together a movie along with a unique interface. Using QuickTime Pro, a photo manipulation program, and a text editor, you can create a unique look for your movie and begin to build a memorable brand.

The skin of a QuickTime movie can consist of any image QuickTime can read. So, not only can you create an image in a program such as Photoshop, but you can also take a picture with a digital camera or even use a scanner to import one you’ve found. Whatever your choice, the process of creating the skin is the same. Skins can be of any shape, so don’t be shy about using unusual shapes to help brand your movie.
