Samya is a digital content creator based out of Vancouver, BC. Her goal is to inspire, educate and spread positive vibes with her beauty & fashion content. After Life Lapse did a collaboration shoot with @SAMYARAHMANI & @FlauntFashionLibrary, I noticed she continued to use Life Lapse to create cool stop-motion beauty videos for her Instagram account. What really caught my attention was how much engagement she was getting on her videos! We're excited to launch our first of many profils of Life Lapse users on the blog. Want to be featured?

Name & what do you do?
Samya Rahmani, I’m a digital content creator who loves to entertain, educate and spread positive vibes with my beauty and fashion content.
What inspired you to do start a beauty channel?
I was tired of just consuming content online and had an itch to create. I chose to create content around beauty because inspiring others to take care of themselves and feel confident has always been one of my passions. So I decided it would be a great creative outlet that would also aim to help others.
Why is creating visually compelling content important to you?
I’ve always loved photography, even before starting my beauty blog you'd catch me experimenting and getting creative with my photos and videos. I just love how photography allows you to capture moments and challenges you to do it in a beautiful way. Also, I think if you're creating content for an audience, it's important to get them to relate to the message/idea you're trying to get across, and making your content visually compelling is a great way to do that.
Why Did you Download Life Lapse?
I was really drawn to the idea of storytelling through video and saw it as an invitation to get creative in a new way that I haven't done before. I also liked that I can make visually stunning videos without any high production tools/equipment since I'm using photos to create them.
What do you use it for?
I mainly use it to create fun stop motion videos for Instagram. I've used to create beauty tutorials as well as modeling clothes or just goofing around
What do you love most about Life Lapse?
First and foremost I love how well-made the app is, I just get so frustrated when a promising app is too slow or has too many bugs or annoying ads. But mostly, I love how creative I can get with my videos using the overlay grid to stabilize the background and how it has everything I need to create stop motion videos within the app
How did uploading a Life Lapse Video impact your engagement?
This part was definitely interesting, I noticed that my stop motion videos made with Life Lapse were getting views that were double my follower count, and compared to my regular videos, the view count's quadruple! I guess stop motion videos are a lot more fun to watch and rewatch
Would you recommend other people to use Life Lapse & why?
Definitely! It's a platform for content creators to get creative with their content and experiment with videos, without actually having to learn new skills or get special equipment. I think the possibilities are endless when it comes to getting creative with stop motion, so I say download Life Lapse and start having fun with it!
