I love to create movies in iMovie — the process and effects are easily created, as Carol’s video shows.
Another technique I use is to create an animated and recorded slideshow in Keynote [Apple powerpoint but so much more]. I export that to a QuickTime movie and import into iMove where I add music and title / credit slides. That gives me options for movement, text animation, etc. that I don’t have in iMovie.
Below is an example. A #clmooc friend, Kim Douillard wrote something about her wish for her students and for teachers. It’s a profound thought, so I created this video using the Keynote technique based on her words:
Although I usually use GarageBand Loops for background music, I recently discovered incompetech for royalty-free music.
Making movies is Just for Fun, and it brings a creative joy to those who create, for those for whom it honors, and for those who view the videos.
So, whatever movie maker you have, create something — perhaps a quote from a friend!
What will you create today?
