Why to reverse?

When a video is being created and a set of events are captured, there are chances that reverse motion can give a different perspective of the same series of events. It sometimes gives an insight to the content or story created.

For example, pouring water in a glass and making it full, it can be shown as a glass getting filled by pouring water into it. It’s all about perspective.


Snapchat is one of my favorite apps that not only allows to create pictures and videos but also to provide meaningful and creative touch to the piece of content created. Have fun with Snapchat and explore your creativity.
