Ever wished you could just jump and land in a different location? If you’re ready to dip your toe into the exciting world of special effects, here’s our step-by-step guide on how to create a ‘jump cut’ video.
If you follow us on Instagram you may have seen our take on a recent video trend, ‘the jump cut’, where people film themselves jumping in one location and landing in another… as if by magic! We’ve created our very own take on this trend, where you jump and land in different locations around our villages - and we want to see your recreations on your Center Parcs break. Follow our step-by-step guide on creating your very own jump video, featuring all the activities and adventures your family enjoyed during your break. Jump from your lodge to the Subtropical Swimming Paradise to Archery to exploring the forest - the possibilities are endless. It’s a unique way to capture all those experiences for you and your family to look back on later.
How to make a jump cut:
Choose your tools
You will need a smartphone to film your jump cut. To help you put it all together, you will need to choose a tool to "edit" your video too. Our favourites are Instagram Reels or Tiktok, or if you’re a little more advanced you could use video editing software. To keep it simple we’re going to show you how to do this using Instagram. To use Instagram, film your separate clips on your smartphone first then put them together in Instagram Reels.
