Show of the Week: Curious Critters

We teamed up with award-winning photographer and author, David Fitzsimmons, to create this dynamic video slideshow promoting his book, ‘Curious Critters’. David has a unique approach to animal portraiture, and he loves sharing it with kids. Instead of seeking rare animals in exotic locations, David photographs common animals – many found in your own back yard – against plain, white backgrounds. The resulting images are striking.

The entire video was created in ProShow Producer software. Keep an eye out on the blog next week where we’ll teach you how to create a similiar intro sequence using masking and keyframing! You can learn more about the book at Also be sure and visit David Fitzsimmons website for his photography workshop tours dates and more.
