Other Online Programs (and possible) Apps for Movie Making *tried to list mostly free or VERY low cost

∑ PowerPoint - Yes, before all this movie making stuff came about, most people stringed together a series of different photos, overlaid text and added music which you can still do and still do effectively - the only issue I have with PPT is that the transition between slides seems a little dated and slow but it does still work!

Photos / Images and Footage Sites

Below is a comprehensive list of places to obtain images, photos and live footage sections for your videos. Note that if you want FREE images, they are available on these sites but youíll need to search. Often images for pay will come up first when you enter any search term/keyword because thatís obviously how they make their money but there are many free images you can use as well.

Stock Art / Free Use Photos/etc. You should be able to look for free, but to obtain (download) images; you may need to create a login/sign up and pay a minimal fee.
*ALWAYS check the Terms of Use policy for any photos. Using something without the right permissions could get you sued or levy hefty fines and infringement/copyright charges.

When All Else Fails - SEEK Professional Assistance
At the end of the long day, itís okay to hire a professional and there are some that costs very little. First I list some sites that are low cost all the way to more costly companies. Before you pay the big bucks, I hope I have said at least ONCE that you should ASK A TEENAGER. They just get this technology intuitively and why not work together on something, try it,that might be fun!!

Companies, (SOME listed below are individuals/freelancers and small business owners and the first three MAY be located in other countries). You can also search for Virtual Assistants - who also can do a lot of graphic design for you too at a reasonable rate. Always read reviews and ask around before using anyone.
