Good morning.

I would like you to download the folder titledNewsPackagePracticeClips that’s in the Class Read-Only folder on the server. Drag that to your desktop at the beginning of class so it has time to load while we look at a tutorial video.

Today we’re going to watch a tutorial for using iMovie. It is very basic, but it’s a good way to start and to get familiar with the tools and functions. There is also a link to a more advanced tutorial that shows more tips and tricks once you have the basics down.

On Tuesday (no school on Monday), we’ll take some more class time to shoot more video for your News Package assignment. If you need the cameras at other times of the day, be sure to let me know ahead of time so I can make sure it’s ready for you.

Now that the practice clips are on your desktop, I’d like you to use them to create a practice news package using iMovie. I mainly want to see that understand how to do some basic editing:

First: Connect to the server – and click on the 2668 folder and select the Class Read Only folder.

Click on the folder titled: NewsPackagePracticeClips and drag it to your desktop to place a copy there.

When that is done downloading, launch iMovie from your Applications folder.

Create a New Project. (File – New Movie) Name it: iMoviePractice.YOUR NAME

Import the clips and put them together into a short video following the steps outlined in the tutorial we’re going to watch today. Here is the link for reference: https://live.myvrspot.com/iframe?v=fNThiNmQ0NWI3Nzk1MmJmZDM2ZGY4M2EyNzAyZTBlZTU

Your video should include: 
1. an Establishing shot
2. Sound bites
3. Wide shots
4. Close ups
5. Audio (Reporter’s Track)
6. B-Roll
7. Titles and Transitions
