As part of our class on “Using Social and Digital Media,” we were tasked to produce a video promo for our clients using a service called Animoto. My client, AmericanVETradio, is a new, internet-hosted station that is dedicated to bringing Veterans and military retirees news and information about their Veterans Affairs (VA) benefits. It could be boring just listening to informational programming all day long, but it’s not just talk. It’s contemporary music and classic hits mixed with important benefits news and information.

The Animoto platform allowed me to put a slideshow together using photos,text, and music. I couldn’t control the speed with which the photos changed. That’s part of the pre-programmed application. So from that point of view, it has an annoying limitation. For a free application, though, it worked well otherwise. I hope you enjoy my promo for AmericanVETradio and that it entices you to listen. You’ll find it at
