INTRODUCTION TO IMOVIE

As a new student learning about the basics of video and sound editing, some of the first programs you may encounter are iMovie and Garageband, 2 applications that come as a standard bundle with all Apple computers. Since Apple computers are often used by amateurs and industry professionals alike, it is a good program, to begin with. Some of the topics and tasks we will cover are:

  1. importing photos, slides, and video clips into iMovie for editing

  2. Creating and using sound loops and pre-loaded instrument presets to create audio tracks

  3. Adding text, transitions, and adding sound to video files

  4. Selecting the proper sound to match the content of your video

PRESENTATION TECHNIQUES

Just as important as creating your designs is being able to present them. Maybe you have had some experience in school having to work out of your comfort zone and do a stand-alone presentation or work in a group with other students for a project, this class requires you to do tasks like these on a regular basis throughout the year. In order to sell your skills to others, you have to be a salesperson to promote who you are, what you do, and the value and skills you can bring to others. Below are some tutorials to help you through this process. Some of the key points to remember while watching this video are:

  1. Don't ramble on with your presentation - Be organized and prepared

  2. Good eye contact - don't stare at your notes or at the floor

  3.  Don't clutter up your notes - be concise and specific about what you want to say

  4. Don't have complicated, complex slides - make sure they are clear and to the point

  5. Don't fidget, play with your hair, or pace around the room - have a confident posture

  6. Don't speak to softly or use fillers like "um" or "so" - be confident, be loud enough to hear and pauses
