This USA Today blog post says what's best about Animoto, which bills itself as "the end of slideshows."
This amazing online tool lets you crank out captivating, compellingly watchable videos. I call it the ultimate-eye-candy-maker.
I like their video on Techcrunch. But you'll have to go there to see it [since the embed tags aren't available].
Don't miss the Animoto case studies videos. The Barker Lounge one is a fun one to look at. The pet owners paradise sends out a weekly video via email to its customers featuring a photo montage of the dogs who have been boarding there the previous week.
