When a client is searching for the right photographer, they’re looking not just for skill, but for personality and a sense of professionalism. A well-crafted About Me video can help convince them you’re the right photographer to trust with their memories. But when you’re making that video, which of Animoto’s products — our Marketing Video Builder or our Slideshow Video Builder — works best for creating that connection?
To help you decide, we’ve created two versions of an About Me video created by Christopher Todd Studios — one with our Marketing Video Builder and the other with our Slideshow Video Builder — along with a list of features used in each video.
Note: The Marketing Video Builder is available for Animoto Professional and Business customers.
Christopher’s video was created with 13 photos, three photo captions, and five video clips — including four video clips with text. The style is Glamour and you can find it by selecting Start from Scratch when you start your Marketing Video project. The song, “7 Years” by Cedar Avenue, is available in our music library.
