View My first iMovie 08 video.

Task #1: Create a "practice" iMovie.

1. Open iMovie and take some video of you and anyone you can convince to be in your video using your built-in camera on your computer. Add it to the project by selecting it and dragging to the top window.
2. Add some photos from iPhoto using the photo button on the left side of iMovie. Again drag and drop.
3. Arrange your photos and video clips the way you want them.
4. Add a title to the first photo or clip by dragging and dropping the title onto the first picture. The title icon is near the iPhoto icon.
5. Add some music using the music button.
6. Record your voice onto a clip or picture describing it.
7. Add transitions.

You can figure this all out by trial and error and working together, or you can go to the tutorials. Apple's Tutorials

This movie does not have to make sense. You are just practicing using the elements of iMovie.
