Where can I get backgrounds and loops for creating video?

We like iStockPhoto because of their pricing and licensing structure. Check 'em out.


What software should I use for editing video?

There are many applications to choose from. If you're just getting started and doing very light editing (like clipping out a short section of a longer video), then Apple Quicktime Pro (Windows and Macintosh) could work.

Software with more robust editing options include Adobe Premiere Elements, Pinnacle Studio or Sony Vegas for Windows users and Apple iMovie or Apple Final Cut Express for Mac users.
