I'd like to make a trailer for a project I've been working on and I'd like to learn some new skills in the process.
I love the presentation of information in videos such as The Crisis of Credit,
and while I understand that anything like that would be overly ambitious, I'd love to have some of that sort of text animation.
Additionally, the animation will involve up to 150 still photos, many of which I would like to show quickly in rapid succession (like the Many Faces of Paris Hilton
(warning, autoplaying sound)).
The final home for the animation would be vimeo or youtube.
What software should I use (I'm using Windows) and where can I find some basic tutorials on this sort of animation? I've got a budget to work with, so it's okay if the best solution is not free.
