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.
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.

Task #2:

Make sure you have invited all 19 people to your voicethread. Finish commenting on all the voicethreads that you have been invited to using audio comments. You should comment on 19 voicethreads. Remember, extra credit for anyone who gets someone outside of the class to comment on their voicethread by issuing them an invite.

Task #3:

Add your idea for your movie to the google doc. You'll need to click on the 2nd page of the spreadsheet called iMovie Ideas at the bottom of the google doc page. Your idea needs to be either something tied to one of your classes, or educational in some way. It could be a video that teaches how to do something. Be as creative as you wish! Have this posted by Monday.

Task #4: If you have not posted to the blog about the 3 photo applications we learned, please post before Monday.

Task #5: If you still have time left, check out some example videos at the apple student gallery. Click on movies and animations. Look for videos that were made with iMovie.
