30-second wonder

At animoto today, I created almost effortlessly this cute video of our recent vacation. These 30-second shorts are free, but if you want to create longer features, you’ll have to shell out a few dollars.  It’s all quite reasonable.   Check out the photos; it’ll only take you 30-seconds. Enjoy. SPL
