What's your passion? Make a video on it!

Spring in Scrollwork's Garden

Try our video maker at Animoto.

I just discovered video production using Animoto via a fellow etsian. I've been wanting to create a promotional video of my upcycled handmade clothing and home decor. I was intimidated by the editing process and selection of accompanying music on YouTube. But Animoto is like video production for dummies. They have an array of templates, and all 30-second videos are free! This might be my new addiction. I've always said I don't have time for Twitter and Pinterest, but this one's productive!

For my first experiment, I created a quick glance through my garden with photos from my Flickr account. I could see this medium as an animated, customized birthday card. It could be a mini digital scrapbook of a milestone in your wee one's life. What would you create a video on?
