Jimdo Spotlight: Action Flipbooks

Just in time for Jimdo's USA launch party, we discovered Action Flipbooks! Matthew Strong and his company were just what we needed to liven up the Jimdo party. Not only is he a passionate Jimdo user, San Francisco happens to be one of the areas that they operate in.


In addition to encouraging us to get a little silly in front of the camera, everyone went home with their personal souvenir to remember the night by. In between making silly faces and dancing, we found a moment to ask Matthew a few questions for this in-person spotlight.


And don't forget to check out the video compilation of all the Jimdo party flipbook clips at the bottom!

Tell us about your experience at the Jimdo launch party?

Right off the bat we felt right at home.  The Jimdo team is truly the most friendly, outgoing, fun and sincere group we've had the honor to provide entertainment for.


What were some of the reactions that attendees had to the whole flipbook experience?

Some of the reactions included, surprise, disbelief and astonishment!

What do you think it is about flipbooks that gets the photo phobic hamming it up in front of the camera?

I'm no fan of getting photos either.  And sometimes people see the studio the avoid it like the plague, but then they see it's actually an old school animated video, who can resist right? 


What's the oddest 7-seconds of flipbook mayhem that you've witnessed?

Jumping into a pool? Being chased by a cable car? Dancing with a Smurf?  The never-ending conga line? 50 guests in one book?  People falling through the backdrop, you see a lot, you never know what to expect, but the best part is, it's caught on camera!

    nice and well done.. there is a service in France where you can upload a video and they create a flipbook out of it and send you it per mail.. very cool! i recently purchased one.

    the photobooth is also a nice idea, in the us very well known. i recently had a look at more then 40 different type of booths and software and lightning and so on. if you got any questions about using a photo booth in hamburg.. send me a mail, i recently build a working booth with "sparkbooth" as a nice software working on it.
