3 Year-End Recap Video Ideas to Spark Inspiration

Megan O'Neill


The end of the year is just around the corner! Here at Animoto, we’re all about saying goodbye to one year and hello to the next with video. An end-of-year recap video is a great way to revisit everything that’s happened over the past year and get excited about what’s in store for the coming year.

We’ve put together a few examples of recap videos to inspire your own! Check them out and then try documenting the year for yourself using our free video templates.

A business year in review

Video can be a great way for businesses to look back on all that happened over the past year, share milestones with customers, and relive fun team events.

We've added some brand new video templates to make it easy for businesses to share their highlights. The first is the Company Year In Review template, featured below.

You can also share milestones month by month with the Our Company's Year template. Check out how we recapped 2020 using this simple template.

Find out more about how to use these templates in our article on how to make a year in review video.

A family’s year in review

Video can also be a wonderful way to capture all of your family memories to share with friends and family. These precious keepsake videos can be looked back on for years to come!

We've got a template to make it easy for you to create your own year in review video for your family. It's our This Year's Moments template and you can try it out for free by clicking the button below.
