• The Best Transitions

    For this assignment (4 stars), I found my favorite transitions on iMovie. I haven’t really experimented with the transitions, so when I found this assignment I thought it would be good practice. I have always used transition,s but I kind of just started finding them on iMovie. I decided to use pictures from my trip to England two years ago. I thought they would be good to use and it was also nice to get to make a video of my trip which I haven’t done yet. I looked through all of my photos and then added them to iMovie. I then looked through and played around with the transitions.…

  • The Story of Kate

    For this assignment (5 stars), I decided to create a documentary based on my character, Kate. I started by thinking abut what I wanted to say. I wrote up a story and then found the pictures to go along with it. I started by recording the intro and then the story. I added the pictures and decided how long they should be on the screen for. I then added the final and the image urls. I really liked getting to develop and tell the story of my character. It had been awhile since I thought about her beginning, so it was nice to revisit it. I found pictures that really…

  • A Day in the Life

    For this assignment (3 stars), I decided to show a day in the life of one of my character’s animals. My character, Kate, saves animals for a living and this is one of the animals she saved. He now lives with Kate. I thought this would be a different way to tie my character in and show the perspective of the animals she saves. As you can see in the video, he is extremely lazy! I started the assignment by thinking of things I could get pictures of. I used my cat in the video and just took pictures of things he was doing. The only thing I could not…

  • Puppies!

    I saw this assignment (2 stars) and knew I had to do it! I do not have a dog but have always wanted one. I started by googling pictures of cute dogs and picked my favorites which was so hard. I chose my favorites and then added them to iMovie. I wanted to find a background noise, so I looked on freesound.org and found the acoustic guitar music. I thought it would make a nice background sound and being calming while looking at the puppies. I really like how it turned out and think that it can make anyone happy!   Until next time, Emily

  • Relax

    For this assignment (3.5 stars), I created a video of ocean waves. I started by finding the ocean waves on freesound.org. I also found a person saying relax that I thought would tie into the assignment. I used audacity to add the two audios and then exported them and added them to iMovie. I found two sunset pictures of the ocean and decided to alternate the two with the audio. I downloaded the movie and uploaded it to youtube. I really enjoyed this project. Sometimes when I am stressed I will listen to relaxing music and now I can use my own. Until next time, Emily

  • A Few of My Favorite Assignments

    For this assignment (3.5 stars), I put together a video of my favorite assignments I have created so far. I went through all of my old posts and tweets and picked my favorites. I decided to overlay my picture assignments with my audio assignments. I liked the idea of this because it allowed for the audio to have visual. I really liked getting to look through all of my old work and seeing how much I have done in this class! I downloaded all me media from my blog and took screenshots of my tweets. I used iMovie to create the video and put everything together. I then uploaded it…

  • Where I Want to Go

    For this assignment (4 stars), I created a video of two cities in Spain I want to visit, Barcelona and Spain. I have always wanted to visit Spain and these pictures make me want to even more! I googled pictures for both the cities and then uploaded them to iMovie. I then found music on freesound.org to play with the pictures. I found the two intro pictures to introduce each city and separate the pictures of each. I then uploaded the video to youtube. I loved getting to explore the cities through google images and hope to one day visit the cities. This was one of my first times using…
