Animoto takes video and slideshows to the next level

- October 22, 2008 - 3 Comments

Animoto is a really cool website that allows you to create engaging and professional-quality videos from your photos and music you have online or on your computer. I immediately see the value in Animoto for advertising professionals, artists, teachers, photographers and those looking to beef up their Facebook page. The mashup of photos, music and effects produce videos like the one I made below. In total it took me about 10 minutes to complete. Let me know what you think and if you would like to share your video! Today, Animoto launched a site especially for professional photographers. Animoto for Photography allows professional photographers to easily create professional-quality videos that can be emailed, burned to DVD and resold, or distributed online via blogs, websites, social networks and mobile devices.

  1. very cool vid, hanna...i think making vids and putting them on web are going to get easier and easier...or, at the very least, they'll make them more and more idiot proof...i'm living proof of that...

  2. Thanks John! Admittedly, I thought it would take longer to put together but now I’m super excited to make more! : D I wonder if history will find us more or less creative than the past, because of the artistic assistance we get from technology. Either way, sites like Animoto give the consumer a sense that they created something unique and that is valuable.

  3. What a cool app w/ a fantastically easy and intuitive interface. This made my day.
