DIY Animated Videos
I came across goanimate.com, a cool site that lets you make your own professional animated videos. There are a ton of backgrounds, characters, themes, etc., and you have much freedom to change how it all looks. It’s all drag-and-drop for storyboarding, and then you record your own audio. And the character lip-sync is automatic! Whaaaa? That’s crazy cool.
The only downfall is it’s sort of priced more for a company that wants to make a number of videos ($300-$600 per year). If you’re a student or someone that just want to make a video now and again, that seems less like a good/feasible price.
