As part of our new brief with Warner Bros. to create artwork inspired by Space Jam: A New Legacy, we would love to see how you create your artwork. Read on to discover new tools for capturing your process.

Social content capabilities are ever-expanding, and so is the demand to showcase your work in new and exciting ways. Process or ‘how I made it’ videos have become the latest hype on social, not just for their artistic insight, but for their ‘satisfying’ qualities! Many artists have turned to the trend to demonstrate their artistic process, but just how are people making them and what are the best tools to use? 

As we know your time is precious, we’ve rounded up the five best tools to help you get started. Gone are the days when you needed to be a pro-videographer to create awesome content, with these tools you’ll be making great videos at double the speed, in no time!

 

TikTok

Free

Titkok seems to have a new trend everyday, and aside from taking over the social media world, it does have a really strong creative offering for making content. With multiple features, it can be a very fun and easy way to show your work in progress. You can choose to either take multiple photographs or videos of your work, and the tool even advises you on correct positions to hold using the timer. You can then package it together and add your own audio or music from the app’s library to give it some extra shazam!

Instagram Reels / Hyperlapse 

Free 

As Instagram’s answer to TikTok, Reels has similar options in terms of creating time lapse videos, so it really depends on your personal preference. If you prefer to share your content to Instagram, then this option may win the war as you can create and share directly into the app. Like Tiktok, you can also include personal touches to add appeal beyond the art community.

Procreate

$9.99 

As one of the leading digital design tools for artists, you’re probably already familiar with Procreate - but you might not know that it has a super handy time-lapse recording option. Before you start working, just select ‘time lapse-recording’ under video actions and the app will record your work as you go. You can then export it as a video and use this to share your process!

Adobe Fresco

Free, with subscription add on for premium features

Similar to Procreate, Adobe Fresco is a drawing and painting app for creating work from your device. You might prefer this if you already work in Adobe as you can export your work into Photoshop and work between them. They’ve also now added in a time lapse tool, meaning you can work within the app and then export your work as a sharable video. You can do this by clicking the share icon, tapping Publish & Export and then choosing the Timelapse Export option. If your mp4 is under a minute you’ll then be able to share this on your Instagram channels like you do with a normal post. All in a day's work!

Lapse It 

Free with option to pay for premium

Lapse It is a phone app dedicated to editing time lapse videos. If you just can’t warm to TikTok or Reels and you create your work non-digitally then this might be the best option for you. You’ll just need to set up your phone to record your work, and then can use the in-app tools to create your time-lapse export. As you’ll be setting up the camera yourself, and will want it to remain still, a basic Iphone tripod might be worth investing in too.
