Here is an example of the project which I have done by using a clip from the movie "Tangled". Your finished project should look something like this, but with an added introduction, as well.
1.) Choose a clip from YouTube about anything, as
long as it is appropriate for school and save it to
your computer as an mp4 file.
2.) Import the clip into iMovie (File > Import >
3.) Select about 30 seconds worth of the clip, and
open a new project called "What Are
Adjectives?" Then, drag the selected clips into
4.) Remove the audio from the clip so that there is
5.) Choose about 7-10 adjectives that describe
what is going on in the clips (people, places,
things, ideas), and put them as text into the movie where they belong.
6.) When you are finished and happy with the way your movie looks, choose music/sounds from the
iLife Sound Effects menu and include in your movie as background music. The entire movie
should have some kind of music or sounds.
****Note: Make sure that the music/sounds that you choose match the MOOD of your scenes.
7.) When you are all finished, record yourself explaining what an adjective IS, and what an adjective
DOES. Then explain what the movie project is about. This should be about 30 seconds. Include this
video introduction at the start of your movie. This part should NOT have music in the background!
8.) Share the movie by sending it to iTunes.
Here is a video tutorial that I made to help you with any problems that you might have:
You will then create a new post on your blog with the same title and labels as this post. Upload your finished video from iTunes and publish the post.
Good luck and have fun! I am excited to see what you guys can do!
