I have the good fortune of being able to make videos for the fine software company I work for, plus I've created some for myself for my own amusement.
I've discovered that "creating content" in audio and video format can be far quicker compared to the laborious task of writing and editing text.
I was going through some old e-mail and found these links that might be helpful for future reference:
- http://www.cartoonsmart.com/ – cartoons and flash
- http://keepvid.com/ - download youtube videos, only saves them as FLV’s though you can encode them into avi’s
- http://www.findsounds.com/ - SFX search engine
- http://www.therecordist.com/pages/downloads.html - free SFX
The most enjoyable part of making video clips for me is adding music and sound effects (sfx), they can add a lot of humor to dry and dusty material.
