Awhile ago, I mentioned that I wanted to learn how to make and edit video. Today I had the opportunity for some PD. Last week, we shot a bunch of video of kids talking about books and of our ancient technology in our schools. Today, I learned some new things.
First, I used a MacBook for the first time. Second, I learned how to use iMovie to upload the video. I learned about selecting pictures from video clips. I learned how to transition. I learned how to add music. I learned how to create a voiceover. I learned how to make the music get quieter and the voiceover to get louder. I learned how to “share” the final product.
Today I created a short 30 second clip with some of the things I learned. This was more for play than production, but here is the product:
It is not much, but I am proud of what I did today! I hope to learn more and to perhaps use these new tools as part of my final project. Watch for more to come!
