Animoto: Create music videos with your photos and music

I've discovered Animoto, a new idiot-proof service on the net that lets you create music videos with your photos and music.

Simply upload your photos (or have it import from flickr, picasa, etc...), upload your MP3 and within 5 minutes it will whip-up a fancy slideshow set to your music. Flashy/jazzy effects, very professional looking and very user friendly.

The trial version lets you make 30second clips for free but it's USD3 per full video or USD30 for a year's worth of unlimited clips.

I can think of so many uses for this-- prom videos, your travel photos, a gift for an anniversary or for a birthday--it's relatively cheap! Why spend Php30,000 for a slideshow of your wedding photos when this site will do it for less than php150?

Check out a quick and dirty 30sec sample I created below.

Bonus points for Animoto because the name makes it sound... oh, so Lasallian. Animo!
