“Life in a Day” Section A

11 Oct

Yesterday you were given “dummy” footage from YouTube so you could practice editing your “Life in a Day” film. The “dummy” film needs to be uploaded to vimeo and posted to WordPress (in the comments section) by the end of the period on Wednesday, 10/12.

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT FOR: DJ, AIDAN, YAMIL AND JOVANNA
Since you were absent, you need to complete your “Life in a Day” film during class today. Work with your assigned partner to complete this film.

“Life in a Day” Project:
For today’s class you will begin editing your own “Life in a Day” footage. You will need to import your footage from your camera and then put it in iMovie. You will be expected to work with a partner to edit your “Life in a Day” footage, but each person will submit their own video. You should be prepared to present your film for feedback on Friday, 10/14.

Just a quick note about file types — iMovie is only compatible with .MP4 and .MOV file extensions. If your file is not compatible with iMovie, you will need to convert the footage using Zamzar.

Class Expectations:

  • Work with your partner on your assigned unfrozen computer
  • blue bear = frozen // red bear = unfrozen
  • Transfer your “Life is a Day” footage to your desktop
  • Import your “Life in a Day” footage into iMovie:
      • Create a “New Project”: iMovie > File > New Project
      • Import your Footage: File > Import > Movies > Desktop
      • Convert files to .Mov or .MP4 if necessary: http://www.zamzar.com
  • Work with your partner to edit your “Life in a Day” footage using iMovie
  • Each person is responsible for completing one edited film
  • Your completed “Life in a Day” video should be about 3-minutes
      • Make a storyboard if useful
      • Include voiceovers, transitions, titles and music
      • Incorporate “Cultural Probes” from your subject
  • Export to desktop // upload to vimeo // post to wordpress
