Let's face it, most of us would not be able to function without our cell phone, or is it just me?! One of the many, many things that I love about my cell phone, be it an iPhone or an Android, is the ability to snap a picture at any given moment. Whether it's to preserve a memory, to capture a family member or friend in a humorous moment, or to take a picture so I'll remember something later, having a ready-to-go camera in my pocket is always handy. Then, to sweeten the deal, my smartphone allows me to share my pictures in a variety of ways and in a variety of formats. One of my favorite ways to share my pictures, besides creating a Photo Canvas, is to create a mini video using my Animoto app (Animoto in Google Play Store, Animoto in iTunes, and also available on online). Once I've created a festive video, I can share it with thousands of my closest friends on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, email, and more.
So, this Christmas I challenge you to create an Animoto video that portrays a few of your favorite things from 2014, either professionally or personally or both. Below is my Favorite (Professional) Things in 2014 video; watch my Facebook and/or Twitter feed over the holidays for my Favorite (Personal) Things in 2014 video.
