i Type, therefore i Animate

I've been playing around a bit with Xtranormal, a cool new online application that allows you to create really cool animated videos simply by typing in your script. This application allows you to customize your characters and backgrounds, add actions and sound effects to your videos.

Xtranormal is extremely simple to work with, and it takes all of the production time out of creating animated videos, and I can think of many students who would love to get their hands on this tool :-)

While anyone can use an e-mail address to sign up for a free account, there are some benefits that come with upgrading to one of the premium account options. Not only can anyone view your videos on the Xtranormal website, you can also embed your published videos on websites, blogs and wikis. They also have a feature that enables you to instantly post your videos to a YouTube account...

I just created the following video in 30 minutes using my free Xtranormal account:
