This is a supplement to “Appy Hours 4 You” Blog Talk Radio Show: Episode 7 – “Videolicious Student Products“. In this episode, we featured multiple free apps that can be utilized for creating student video products. I was joined by music maestro Michael Benavides, and infotainment guru, who shared his app-etite for animation and video production apps. We started out discussing multiple purposes (ranging from video diaries and resumes to book trailers, documentaries, and product reviews) for student video products as well as the functionality, purpose, and features of each indivdual app (and what features were available as in-app purchases).
