I Heart “Search Stories”

by Phil Sexton on June 2, 2010

I am a fan of short, fast-paced videos that are interesting to watch.  I am NOT a fan of video editing because it’s time consuming and tedious. So when I attended a class taught by Justin McHood at Scottsdale Camp and he showed an example of a short, fast-paced video that he created with no video editing, my interest was piqued.

The first thing I did after the class was head over to youtube.com/searchstories to make a video for John Hall & Associates. Then I thought it would make a good post for this blog too, so I spent about 15 minutes making this video for AAR:



All you have to do to create your own masterpiece is:

  1. Type up to six search queries and pick what you’d like to search (News, Blogs, Maps, Books, Web, Images).
  2. Pick one of the 30-ish sound track options.
  3. Push ‘Create Video.’

The tool does EVERYTHING else to create the video.  Once it’s done, you can preview the creation, give it a title and description, and upload it to your YouTube channel. Done.

I am a huge fan of tools that make it simple to create interesting content. If you make a video for your business or association, post a link in the comments below!
