This week we continued filming our movies. We dressed up in our costumes and gathered our props for the movie and filmed more scenes in our scripts.
We discovered that it is not easy to remember our lines from the scripts and sometimes it was even harder to say the lines without laughing! It was lots of fun moving around the school to find the perfect spot to film the scene and deciding what angle and distance to film from to create the most engaging movie.
We then edited our filming from this week to seamlessly add to last weeks filming and make the video interesting. We used text, narration, splitting, music, special effects and transitions to do this and create an exciting movie. We will be continuing to film and edit our movies next week.
Here is another sneak peek…
This week, we began filming our movies that we have been writing our scripts for. We organised our costumes and props and filmed one or two scenes. Each student in the team will get to film, act and edit!
We added our filming to iMovie and edited the video using all the different functions we have been exploring over the past few weeks. These include narration, splitting, transitions, sound, text, and special effects such as slow-motion and black and white. Using these functions creates a more engaging and exciting movie!
Over the next few weeks, we will be continuing the filming of our movies and editing as we go.
Here is a sneak peak…
This week we completed our movie scripts ready for filming! We are all very excited to be up to the filming stage as we made a list of the props and costumes we need to make our movies. We have all come up with our own ideas for our movies and they are all so different.
To be ready to edit our movies and make them as effective and interesting as possible, we learnt how to use another function in iMovie. Narration allows us to add voice-over to our movies. Now, we can edit videos and make them very engaging by
- splitting and deleting parts of the video
- add transitions between slides
- include special effects such as slow-motion and black and white
- add sound or music
- put text over video
- include narration
This week, we began the scripts for our movies! Each group started writing the speaking lines for each scene, including where the scene is taking place. We have completed the scripts for three scenes and will continue these in the upcoming weeks.
On iMovie, we explored the splitting function that allows us to split a video and move/delete certain parts. This is a great function that we can now use when editing our movies which will create more effect and make the movie more interesting. We took a 1 minute video, uploaded it to iMovie and then used the splitting function to cut out parts to make the movie exciting.
