Animoto makes videos out of pictures and video clips. It’s free when videos are under 30 seconds and can look great – quickly.
It is a combination of copy, visuals, movement, and audio which can engage the senses of your audience for the short period of time to help you get your message across.
Plus it is a good challenge to try to get your message within a shorter timeframe. Simpler is often better.
