A platform that recreates memorable, defining moments as video animations or pictures to help preserve them so you can revisit when you want.
There are numerous ways to preserve memorable moments, such as photographs and videos. However, we cannot always capture these moments as some of them are spontaneous and unplanned.
Memories are fickle and hardly reliable and we remember less of them with time.
Pictures and videos help us preserve them. But we cannot always capture our memorable moments on cameras.
A platform dedicated to rendering watershed moments of your life as animations where you can create something more permanent and reliable can fill that gap. What's more? Recreating images as animations offers an opportunity to influence your story. Say a particular moment didn't go as you wished, you can change the details in the animation.
Such a platform will help you accomplish the following:
  • Better preserve memorable moments in your life
  • Give you a measure of control over your memories as you can change some of the details
  • Provide a means of entertainment for your kids, guests, and friend groups
How it Works?
The platform should have two options:
  • human artists that work much the same way that police sketch artists do
  • automated templates you can manipulate to recreate the memories you want to preserve
If you have media, like pictures and videos, that can make the adaptation more faithful, provide them.
Obviously, this won't be a 100% faithful recreation. But then, it doesn't have to be. In my experience, even the littlest details from a moment you witnessed can bring back a flood of memories as vivid as when it occured. So, as long as the core remains, the recreations will serve the intended purpose.
If you like the recreation enough, there should be an option to make a VR rendition so you can relive the moment, too.
If you had the option to remake moments that matter to you into animations, would you want them to be as faithful to your recollections as possible or would you try to influence them and change certain details?

VR and even AR is a great idea! It reminded me of this video on youtube where a company was employed to create a short virtual reality animatic for a grieving mother who could not get over the sudden loss of her daughter. I think VR has a lot of potential in our future and is the perfect way to relive memories in a way that is mimics reality. Furthermore, I think this video is proof that memory recreation does not have to be a hundred percent accurate or realistic in order to serve its purpose.

It would be a great gift. I imagine it to be something like the news in Harry Potter. Although they are short GIFs, your idea will create longer (depending upon the situation) videos. For starters, you could combine the Avtar (an animated recreation of your photograph and those of the people involved in your memory) with Doodly (for animation videos). So the Avatars would be of people in the memory and Doodly will animate them into the situation. Doodly is primitive for your idea but a better version of it will do.
