Via Ewan McIntosh, introducing Animoto, an application that mashes together the images you upload with music you select to create a unique video production. The folks at Animoto—"a bunch of techies and film/tv producers who decided to lock themselves in a room together and nerd out"—have developed "Cinematic Artificial Intelligence technology that thinks like an actual director and editor. It analyzes and combines user-selected images and music with the same sophisticated post-production skills & techniques that are used in television and film." Way cool, I think. The below video contains their 60 info bit as well as an extended introduction to the application and its features.
Due to popularity in education, Animoto (like Voicethread) has created an Educators site. The possibilities for video compositions are growing rapidly. I can’t wait to take advantage of this in the near future.
