Creating Animated Videos Might Be Easier Than You Think

Have you ever wanted to make an animated video but don’t have the skills to do one in-house or the budget to hire a provider? Fortunately, the field of online video builders has progressed tremendously over the past few years and while this isn’t an area where I have a great deal of experience, I know people who do.

Adaptistration People 183To that end, I was very happy to meet Morgan Berman, Founder and CEO of MilkCrate, at last year’s NTEN conference. Her company creates affordable apps for nonprofits to track, grow, and reach their missions by engaging program participants and tracking impactful behavior.

It’s always fun to geek-bond with fellow tech providers that focus on the nonprofit sector and I invited her to write something for ArtsHacker. When she suggested writing an overview of video animation provider, Vyond, I knew it would be a terrific topic since that’s the very skills road so many arts managers fear to tread.

Morgan’s article is filled with useful step by step insight and several example videos her company has created over the years.

About Drew McManus

"I hear that every time you show up to work with an orchestra, people get fired." Those were the first words out of an executive's mouth after her board chair introduced us. That executive is now a dear colleague and friend but the day that consulting contract began with her orchestra, she was convinced I was a hatchet-man brought in by the board to clean house.

I understand where the trepidation comes from as a great deal of my consulting and technology provider work for arts organizations involves due diligence, separating fact from fiction, interpreting spin, as well as performance review and oversight. So yes, sometimes that work results in one or two individuals "aggressively embracing career change" but far more often than not, it reinforces and clarifies exactly what works and why.

In short, it doesn't matter if you know where all the bodies are buried if you can't keep your own clients out of the ground, and I'm fortunate enough to say that for more than 15 years, I've done exactly that for groups of all budget size from Qatar to Kathmandu.

For fun, I write a daily blog about the orchestra business, provide a platform for arts insiders to speak their mind, keep track of what people in this business get paid, help write a satirical cartoon about orchestra life, hack the arts, and love a good coffee drink.
