Create & Share Custom Videos. One of the most effective marketing tools to reach the masses is through video. This may seem like a tall order, one that requires a lot of production, money and time… but that’s not the case if you use a product called Animoto.

Animoto allows you to produce your own videos with photos, video clips and music found on your computer or social media applications such as Facebook (online and from your phone) to create a one-of-a-kind product.

Animoto analyzes the provided photos, video clips and music to generate a video similar to a trailer. The video can then be shared via URL, email or on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and more. Its a unique way to present to clients during the proposal phase, create mid-meeting videos, hype an upcoming event or reach guests post-event.

The website offers pre-made video templates with built-in graphics and pre-selected songs or you can start from scratch and create your own as you go. According to the website, the song is analyzed, producing a unique video every time. No two videos will ever be the same.

The program does require site registration and offers pricing plans but we think the final product is worth the fee. The iPhone application allows users to create pieces while mobile and the Animoto Facebook application is just another way for users to produce unique products and share or post the URL to viewers.

Entertain & Educate – Birds of Prey. The Birds of Prey Foundation cares for close to 400 birds each year. Since 1980, they have accepted over 12,000 birds. They arrive orphaned, injured, hungry and in pain. Each one is cared for on a special, personal basis with an average of 100 birds in the facility at one time. Specialized round-the-clock care and large flight areas enable hundreds of these magnficant raptors to regain their freedom to soar again on mended wings. This cause and education provided by the professional staff and demonstration inspires guests.
