Create a Video Slideshow to Share on Social Media

Animoto is a web-based video slideshow platform that allows you to create shareable videos from their website. 

This is a great solution for schools who have collected photos during the ceremony and are looking for a cohesive way to share them.

Animoto videos can be created after graduation day.

Getting Started

You'll need to create an account on Animoto's website. Comms recommends selecting the Personal Monthly Plan option.

The Personal Plan offers the following features:

  • 350 music tracks to choose from
  • 12 Pre-built storyboard templates
  • No Watermarks

The Personal Plan costs $9/month. We recommend canceling the membership once services are no longer needed.
