|WEVA Welcomes Animoto as the Newest Membership Benefit
March 23, 2009
Sarasota, FL - A new revolution in photo montage production is now the newest WEVA member benefit. Following its continued commitment to helping members enhance their business and professional stature, WEVA has developed a special promotion with video creation platform Animoto™.
Animoto allows videographers to create exciting, professional-quality, motion montages fast! The montage video (below) of WEVA EXPO 2008 photos was created in just minutes with Animoto. Powered by patent-pending Cinematic Artificial Intelligence, Animoto thinks like a director and editor to automatically produce a custom-tailored montage with the emotional impact of a movie trailer and the visual energy of a music video.
"Until now, the process of editing photos into professional photo montage videos has been time-consuming and difficult, requiring expensive software. Animoto changes everything, giving videographers and photographers the fastest, easiest, and most affordable way to produce professional-quality montage videos," said Brad Jefferson, CEO and co-founder of Animoto. "ANIMOTO allows professionals to easily create unique, high-quality photo montages that can be emailed, burned to DVD and resold, or distributed online via blogs, websites, social networks and mobile devices. Produced in widescreen format, Animoto videos have a distinct place in a videographer's ever expanding 'toolbelt.'"
"After many months of research, WEVA is extremely excited about welcoming Animoto to the Associaton's expanding list of member benefits," said John Zale WEVA's Director of Educational Development. "For members who are looking to create a new competitive edge for their photo montages without the time and pain needed to learn new software, Animoto may hold the answer."
For a limited time, Animoto will add 2 free months of service onto the purchase of a 1-year pass for all current WEVA members. To sign-up for the Animoto promotion, WEVA members can log in to the WEVA Members-Only section. No promo code is necessary, as the system recognizes that WEVA members have come from the members-only section. This special benefit is valid for WEVA members through December 31, 2009.
