I like to try out new apps on Saturday mornings. So, last week I decided to create a Happy Holidays video for DeskAway on Animoto.com. I have a Plus Plan so I could choose some already created holiday themes. Next, I went through all the blog posts for 2011 on blog.deskaway.com (there were tons!) and picked out the ones that I wanted to feature into the video. Animoto is great as it lets you upload images, write text, move things around and even add a sound clip (they have a library of genres to choose from). Even video amateurs like me can produce stunning videos - and that is the whole beauty of working on the web. There is an app/solution for almost anything. Power to the small guys! No longer you need expensive software and equipment to get things done.
This video took me about an hour to produce. Check it out and let me know what you’ll think.
