PowToon: Super Cool Animated Video and Presentation Tool

POWTOONSYou know those awesome stop-motion videos that startup companies with marketing budgets create to showcase their products? Design companies charge THOUSANDS to create these custom videos, but now they have a strong competitor!

I am now officially in love with PowToon. When I say in love, I mean head over heels. The service lets you use easy-to-manipulate figures to create your own stop-motion videos. It takes a little finagling to get used to the interface; but once you understand the basics, it’s pretty easy to create a video, like this one on how to pronounce “Ziesenis.”
