Creating Your Own Project
For this project, users will create a video of images and sound that evoke a specific emotion for them. They will begin by collecting images that reflect their chosen emotion and use tools in iPhoto to prepare the photos for use in their video. In iMovie, they will import a sound file and the images they worked on in iPhoto. The images will be arranged on the timeline, and transitions can be added to the presentation. A closing credit clip will complete the movie. Users will learn how to export their finished product in a format that can be shared with others.
