Video: Make your first video

On Wednesday in the workshop, students saw a demonstration of the “five-shot method” for shooting video. The reason for using this method is that it makes editing video more easy. If you shoot without a careful plan, you will find it is very difficult to edit your video.

If you missed the workshop that day, here is an overview of the lecture:

Five Shots, 10 Seconds

This is the PowerPoint I showed about Windows Live Movie Maker. Please view it full-screen.

To find a tutorial for Windows Live Movie Maker (Windows 7), or Windows Movie Maker (Windows XP), or iMovie (Mac), please see the links on this page: Video Resources.

NOTE: Windows Live Movie Maker (WLMM) does the same things as Windows Movie Maker (WMM), but the menus and controls are different. Make sure you are using the correct tutorial for your software, or you will be very confused! The iMovie software also does the same things, but it looks very different from the Windows programs.

This is the first video assignment I give to my journalism students in the United States: Video Part 1. You can see the instructions I give to them.
