I just discovered a video creation tool called Animoto and I created this video using it. The video took about 15 minutes to create (including tweaks and edits). I’m very impressed with the software; so impressed in fact that I upgraded to the $5 a month version. The main advantage of this paid membership is the ability to download your videos to your computer. The free version does not let you do this. Plus this paid version comes with a nice library of background music and a few more video templates. It does come with some free photos and videos but they are not very impressive. The only problem I have with my level is that you still have an Animoto logo that is on the end of every video. But I think you can remove that if you purchase the more expensive package.
