Become a Video Producer

If you aren't able to view the embedded video, click here.

In this optional activity, we'll look at Animoto, which can be used to mashup your Flickr photos - or other images - to create your own 30 second music video. This can have a variety of uses such as promoting new titles, highlighting programs, or just using it for fun. This example uses it to promote new Lone Star list titles.

To use Animoto, you'll need to:

  1. Create an account
  2. Upload pictures or select them from your Flickr account.
  3. Make sure you're logged into your Flickr account.
    You can only select 15 pictures.
    Be patient if you're uploading from Flickr, it can take a few minutes to connect.
  4. Select Music.
  5. Create your video.
Videos can be shared via email or embedded in blogs.
