I really enjoyed this video project a lot more than I thought I would. When it was assigned, it sounded hard, but my nerves and mind were set at ease once we started working with iMovie. I loved the program! I have a Mac Book laptop, but I’ve never really gotten into any of the iLife programs. iMovie was so fun and easy to use and I’m so glad this class introduced me to such an awesome program.
Although putting the video together on iMovie was pretty simple, other aspects of the process were not. In my head, I pictured getting a few takes of my friends making fun of silly Facebook statuses. Easy, right? Little did I know, it would take more than just a few takes.
I also recorded my voice-overs on my iPhone voice memos app because I felt that quality would be the best. I recorded all my voice-overs as one file, thinking that would be the easiest…it wasn’t. I thought I’d be able to cut the audio in iMovie just like I was able to cut and edit the video. I ended up having to go into Garage Band and edit all my little 5-second clips into individual files in iTunes. Even though it was tedious, I have to say if that was the most frustrating part of this process, I don’t have much to complain about!
Overall, I enjoyed making this video. I’d say it’s my second favorite project we’ve done next to the soundslide. The video was a lot more fun to put together, and iMovie a much more fun program than Soundslides, but I thought my pictures for my soundslide were more visually appealing than my video. I hope everyone enjoys watching my video as much as I enjoyed making it! 🙂
