    NEW YORK, Aug. 14 /PRNewswire/ --, a web application that
 automatically generates professionally produced videos using patent-pending
 Cinematic Artificial Intelligence technology and high-end motion design,
 has officially launched to the public. With the visual energy of a music
 video and the emotional impact of a movie trailer, Animoto videos are fully
 customized orchestrations of user-selected images and music.
     The heart of Animoto is its newly developed Cinematic A.I. technology
 that thinks like an actual director and editor. It analyzes and combines
 user-selected images and music with the same sophisticated post-production
 skills & techniques that are used in television and film. The technology
 takes into account every nuance of a song -- the genre, song structure,
 energy, rhythm, instrumentation, and vocals. No two videos are the same.
 Even videos generated with an identical set of images and music will each
 have a completely distinct set of motion design. Videos are produced in
 widescreen format and can be emailed, downloaded, and embedded in social
 network sites like Facebook and MySpace.
     MTV Producer, Hyunjoo Kim (Video Music Awards, Movie Awards, VH1 Big in
 '06) says, "This kind of high-budget post-production work usually takes
 days to pull off in the edit room. It's impressive that Animoto somehow
 produces these videos in minutes and anyone can create them online."
     Animoto is also dedicated to supporting new artists and music. So while
 users can upload their own music, the guys at Animoto also proudly feature
 a regularly updated selection of fresh music in the Animoto Music Lounge.
 Tracks are also provided by Uncommon Trax, a music licensing company that
 has placed songs in such musically driven projects as HBO's Entourage, Sex
 & The City, and Grand Theft Auto.
     The founders of Animoto Productions are veterans of the entertainment
 industry who have produced shows for MTV, Comedy Central, & ABC, studied
 music in London, and played in indie rock bands. They share a passion for
 helping people better share their stories and express themselves through
 online media by innovating technologies in the field of video production.
 Animoto Productions, founded in August 2006, is based in New York City with
 an office in San Francisco.
