One of the new programs our school has been working with students on is Animoto. I decided to spend some time on it this week. (I apologize that I didn't bother taking newer photos. These were already in my photobucket and flickr accounts.)
Blogspot doesn't allow proper resolution for you to watch the video in full screen, but I hope you get the idea. Here is the link to post in your browser if you would like to see it a little better - it still can't be viewed well in full screen:
Warning: The video is accompanied by the explicit version of Keeps Getting Better by Christina Aguilera, so you may want to mute the video before playing.
What do you think?
Animoto is a free application on their site: http://www.animoto.com
You can only produce 30 second videos in a limited number of formats. For $30 (for one year) you can upgrade to full length videos - I have the $30 membership. A further upgrade will let you produce HD videos. It's more expensive but may be worth it if you share a lot of what you produce and want to watch the videos in full screen.
I think this is very cool and really wanted to share it with my followers.
