Video Update - Animation!

If you're into creating home movies and noodling around your computer with video and special effects, let me introduce you to a great online tool - Xtranormal! Here you can select from several character sets and background scenes. You simply type in the dialog, add in some hand and facial gestures and publish! The online version is free to create your videos, but if you want to publish them to a blog or YouTube, you have to pay a nominal fee. You buy Xtranormal Points starting out at $10 and use them to buy special characters and settings and to publish your final product.

And, it couldn't be any easier! In fact, Xtranormal's motto is "If you can type, you can make movies". Have a look at my first attempt below, as always, some feedback would be appreciated. Have fun and feel free to check in with any creations of your own. Happy editing!
