Create pro looking videos online: Animoto

Techstination feature for Friday, February 25, 2011

     A fast, easy way to create productions from photos and videos.    I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.     There are lots of software packages on the market that let you create slideshows and movies.   A Web site called Animoto lets you do it all online,  and the results are pretty amazing.    CEO and co-founder Brad Jefferson….

It’s like if you were to hand your digital camera or your mobile phone or your computer with photos on it over to a real Hollywood director and producer, give them a couple days to create something compelling and special.  But Animoto does it in a matter of seconds, requires no expertise and it’s free to create 30 second videos and a small fee to create longer length videos.”

The ability to create 30 second videos for free amounts to a try before you buy.    The fee for a plus membership is  5 dollars a month or 30 dollars a year.  There are services for pros as well.    You can find us with archives, interviews and more at  I’m Fred Fishkin.
