A Review Of DIY Apps To Get Your Video Made!

As you all know, animated videos are a great way to simply convey your message while entertaining your viewers. However, it is not a cheap process, we know that. And, it may be difficult for all businesses to include an explanatory video in their budgets, which is why we are here to save the day! We understand this world isn’t only about Revolution Productions (aka the best video production company EVER), so we wanted to share some tips on a few DIY animated web video production applications.

Go!Animate is a great tool for DIY animation. It is the closest you will get to personal animation, done your way. It is a free platform and has an impressive variety of images, themes, and sounds to personalize your video. By paying for a subscription, you can give it the professional touch with company logos and more.


Another great tool you probably have heard of is Animoto. Although this site is free, for only $2.50 extra, the platform unfolds access to full length videos, a great music selection, and more animation themes. It is commonly used for picture sharing videos, although animation is included as well. What we like about this platform are the themes; once you select a theme of your choice, it will complement your videos and images with animated scenes to bring your video to life.


There is also Smilebox, which honestly is not our personal favorite, but uses the simplified video-sharing technique similar to Animoto. While it doesn’t have the same effects as Animoto, it’s platform is very simple to use and conveys a clear message.


Alright, video creators, now be off! We’ve given you the tools to create, so enjoy making videos. And keep checking our blog for weekly video tips on how you can become an awesome videographer!
