10-year-old Lily Born set out to design a cup that her grandfather (who has Parkinson’s disease) could use without spilling. After working with her dad (entrepreneur Joe Born) on a design, and creating many prototypes at local art space Bughouse Studio, she came up with the Kangaroo Cup, a stackable, easy-to-grab coffee mug.
The Borns turned to crowdfunding website Indiegogo to help bring the Kangaroo Cup to production. (Want a Kangaroo Cup of your own? Pitch in here.) They created a video to promote the Cup in the Digital Media Lab using iMovie. The whole process took a couple of days, importing audio, using voice overs, and several other techniques.
According to Joe Born, “The media center was important in this project. This was practically a hobby but our material was good enough that it moved people. The media center was important in making that happen.”
Whether you’re creating a video to get your Indiegogo or Kickstarter off the ground, producing a song, or designing artwork to promote your business, the Digital Media Lab can be a useful tool for making your ambitions come alive.
