  • Opportunity to reach busy elected officials and staffers with a brief and concise message that communicates programmatic outcomes.
  • Opportunity to add value to traditional program interpretation efforts.
  • Opportunity to package interpretation message for technology savvy audiences.

District 11 staff, I hope that each of you are using the flip video cameras that we sent you to capture video and or pictures to make such interpretation pieces such as in Guadalupe County.  This video was created using the Animoto software with still pictures, the software is free off the Internet.  I thought that you would find this clip interesting and provide you ideas for your own.  I am looking foward to seeing these clips from District 11 staff.  DM
