Mashups: Websites that are videos. Pictures that are movies. Video, video, video.

Thanks to twitter and @flytip, I read 87 cool things from Google Creative Labs at http://bit.ly/3SuAq1.

Some faves were http://animoto.com/ which takes your pics and short videos and makes a very sweet movie from them all, using a sound track of your choosing.

Another Youtube Mashup was Youtube Karaoke. Am I the last to know about this? http://karaoketube.vipinnova.com/?v=JlXadnomXyQ

How fun is that? A real mashup of two internet resources to create real user value in one place. Very cool.

I was also very impressed with BooneOakley’s home page…a video with embedded links. It seems like a very unconventional way to tell your company’s story…but so direct and obvious when you see it.

From an Ethnography perspective, I’ve seen how pictures don’t seem to cut it anymore…At Pratt thesis presentations the last few years, animation and movie clips are the way that people tell stories, not through static pictures and text. The same goes at the office: video clips edited together are a must and always win the client’s attention and imagination.
