Many people celebrate their birthday by either having a birthday party or having a birthday party celebration by going out with family and friends.
People are also more likely to celebrate when they reach a landmark birthday like a 16th, 18th, 21st, 30th, 40th, 50th, 60th, 65th, 70th, 80th, 90th and 100th birthday.
A friend of mine, Nicola, was going out to celebrate her 40th birthday with a meal at a restaurant and a local disco in town afterwards and I was invited.
I wanted to give her a 40th birthday gift she would appreciate and look back at in future times to remember the celebration of her 40th birthday party celebration with fondness.
My immediate thought was to record the events of the evening with photos and video clips and turning it into a 40th birthday party celebration video slideshow.
I of course used the Animoto Video Slideshow Maker to make the birthday gift memento.
The following video slideshow entitled 40th Birthday Party Celebration Video! Create A Video Slideshow Gift Memento! is the result I produced using Animoto. I did not plan the length of 40th Birthday Party Celebration Video! Create A Video Slideshow Gift Memento! but it is about 4 minutes 50 seconds long. Instead, I used as much decent material as I could then I chose a suitable music track to roughly match the material.

After taking part in the birthday party celebration and taking quite a few photos and video clips I set to work on making a video slideshow gift memento for Nicola. I created the birthday party celebration video with the Animoto Video Slideshow Maker. Before using Animoto I organized my material on my computer and planned how to present it as follows:
After I completed the planning stage for the birthday party celebration video I began to create it with the Animoto Video Slideshow Maker internet based service:
Not long after that I had a great Animoto video slideshow entitled 40th Birthday Party Celebration Video! Create A Video Slideshow Gift Memento! which was rendered and ready for distribution.
However, I decide that I wanted to present the 40th birthday party celebration video in person to Nicola as a physical DVD. In order to do this I generated higher resolution versions of the video slideshow which took a little longer to render. Once ready, I downloaded the higher resolution version and burned it to a DVD on my computer. I then presented the 40th birthday party celebration video to Nicola as a belated birthday present the next time we met!
Note: I can render higher resolution video slideshows any time I want as a have a commercial Animoto Pro Account. However, those people with an Animoto Plus Account, which is usually used by people for everyday non-commercial purposes, can pay a small fee to get higher resolution versions of their video slideshows as and when they so desire on an individual basis.
