Animoto was a part of a huge community of over 6000 volunteers dedicated to improving NYC public schools with New York Cares Day this fall. Animoto got the opportunity to design and paint a mural at P.S. 268 in Flatbush, Brooklyn.

Always up for the challenge, Animoto’s office coordinator, Katie, designed a kickin’ mural. The Animoto team arrived bright and early, ready to paint and drink free coffee! Of course we took a gazillion photos and video clips while doing so.

Here is the Animoto video that shows the process of transforming the walls of a playground into art.
