Adobe Spark Video

Adobe Spark Video enables anyone to create compelling video stories in minutes. You can easily add photos (with audio), videos, icons and headings to make your videos.
The app includes access to over 1 million beautiful iconic images or add your own photos to highlight what you have to say. Select the soundtrack that works best. Then Spark Video automatically adds striking cinematic motion to your story — no design experience needed.

Adobe Spark Video is a great tool to share personal stories. It can be used by individuals or groups to share their perspective over the world. A great example from a recent school using it is to ask newly arrived migrant children to document their story for other pupils; and to use it as orientation to document their first experiences in the new school.

Share your video to make an impact: persuade, inform and inspire your audience.
