Prezi's New Nutshell App Morphs Photos into Mini-movies in a Snap

Meld Photo Bursts With Animation and Captions for Dynamic New Ways to Tell Your Stories

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - February 10, 2015) - Prezi, the presentation platform that helps people connect more powerfully with their audiences, today introduced Nutshell; a new visual storytelling app that combines the simplicity of photos, the compelling nature of video, and the fun of animation to create short, shareable cinematic narratives.

The idea for Nutshell came about when the Prezi team discovered that people were using Prezi's zoom-able presentation canvas for sharing events like birthdays, road trips, and even marriage proposals -- since it's easy to embed photos and videos, add text and graphics, and use motion to connect the dots and tell stories. These prezis inspired the company to create Nutshell, a new way to encapsulate life's moments into stories and easily share them, all from a mobile device.

To use the app, simply snap three photos in succession and it will animate them into a single movie sequence. It's also easy to add text and graphics to customize your cinematic vignette. The result is a playful, unconventional twist on traditional photos, which can be shared by email and text message, as well as posted to Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.

"Nutshell is exactly what its name implies: an epic story condensed into the space of a moment," said Prezi Cofounder and Principal Artist, Adam Somlai-Fischer. "We incorporated some of the best features of Prezi -- which helps people use spatial context to share ideas and visually communicate moments in their life in an equally impactful and memorable way."

This is the first time Prezi has launched a new product since the global success of its presentation tool. Prezi's Cofounder and CEO, Peter Arvai, says, "Nutshell is part of our mission to help people share their ideas in a more engaging way and we're very excited to bring yet another completely new medium for visual storytelling to the world."
