We have been playing with a new online service that converts your pictures, text and video clips into really smart videos – it is called Animoto and works really well. You just upload your pictures, choose from their music and design templates and it produces the video for you.
Here is one we made earlier about pencil grips:
We thought it might be fun for other lefties to have a go at this and see what you can create on the theme of “Being Left-Handed” – create a video and send us the link to it and we will create a gallery of the best ones.
Click here to create your video on Animoto free
- Register for a free account
- Choose your theme
- Upload some images or video clips (best to prepare first so they are all ready in a folder on your computer)
- Add some text slides
- Choose your music
After a few minutes your video will be created and Animoto will email you a link to it – if you are happy with it, send us the link (click here to use our contact form – just paste the link on the Sharing page of the toolbox in your message and send it) – if not, just edit and remix again until you are!
If you would like us to include your video in our gallery, please send the embed code as well (copy from the embed item in the Animoto toolbox for that video).
You can make as many videos as you like (they don't have to be left-handed) and there are good tools for sharing and embedding your videos on your web pages, blogs, social sites etc.
We think Animoto is fun and works really well. If you have got any better ways of creating exciting videos like this, let us know by commenting below and we will have a look at them.
