SnapCuts Video Messages

Posted by Andrew at 2:45 PM on February 19, 2012

The nuances of human interaction are so complex that even as adults we often misunderstand one another and at other times, we want to shout our message plainly from the rooftops. So to help us communicate more effectively, SnapCuts offers video messaging using prepared clips from film and TV to help pass on the message with clarity. Think “I’m sorry”, “Thanks for being my friend”, “I got the job!”

SnapCuts

The SnapCuts website lets you create the message you want to convey from a fair selection of clips from film and TV. Some are definitely classics, others are unknowns (to me anyway), but there’s enough to get your message over, which is probably the main thing. There is tag search, so if you are looking for clips that have a particular theme, you can find them easily enough. The site has an easy-to-use editor – the snapper – that lets you set up a string of clips, if that’s what you need.

The site is free to use and all the clips are legally licensed too, so there’s no dodgy stuff here. The business model is to encourage rights owners to license the clips in return for a link from SnapCuts to where the full film or TV show can be purchased. Nice idea.
