Tips from Fox Crime
Start with no makeup, or similar effects, to make the transformation most extreme.
Using an iPhone, take several still images from the same angle. Gradually apply makeup and take pictures along the way. Keep the same angle all the time.
Edit out superfluous images so that the transformation is evident.
Photo View feature on the iPhone is used by the “slide” or by pressing the arrow inside. The images will then be a continuous film.
Use another device to film viewing sequence, for example. a phone or a camcorder.
Voila! You have now created a still image film that can mailed to Kontakt@fox.com.
