Dave, my thoughts exactly, lol! Go get em, Miss Amy!
I’ll tell you how I started using Prezis… and it may be something you want to consider BEFORE you jump in whole-heartedly. Can’t remember if they REQUIRE this or not, but it makes for great shareware of a sort.
Other videomakers have recommended using existing Prezis with which to make informational videos about… let’s say… medical topics. Plenty of creative commons type material to use there. And the standard form for creating a Prezi I think allows reuse automatically. I’m thinking if you DON’T want it reused, you have to sign up for that, and maybe even pay. Check that out and let us know, ok?
Anyway, one fellow videographer took an existing Prezi, videotaped it using Camtasia or Screencast-o-matic or something like that. The topic was a sexually transmitted disease… and he sold it to a local doctor who paid him to upload the Prezi-turned-video it to his YouTube Channel. Really cheap source of authoritative and frequently watched material there. Cool idea, eh?
Just sayin’… if you want to keep your Prezi to yourself… you many have to pay. But for the rest of us… yeeha! Great source of free and easy authoritative, educational videos.
There are also a lot of existing children’s stories with lots of graphics, like Three Little Pigs that make great kids’ video, too. Something for everyone… and a lit extra cash-generation for videomakers, too.
