Stupeflix – Create Awesome Video Presentations | Mark Brumley

Stupeflix – Create Awesome Video Presentations | Mark Brumley | Just Plain Interesting Stuff! | Scoop.it

"Stupeflix is a super cool site to create imaginative videos. Similar to sites such as Animoto and Flixtime, you add images, videos, captions and music. Stupeflix does the rest and you have an amazing creation in minutes.

Although the main purpose is to create movies, I like to use Stupeflix as an alternative presentation tool. When I don’t want a boring PowerPoint but don’t want to spend the time to develop a Prezi, I love to use a tool like Stupeflix."
