Learn to make short, shareable news videos using iMovie
The Greater Los Angeles chapter of the Society for Professional Journalists is hosting a hands-on workshop for news professionals with zero experience in video editing. You’ll sit at a Mac and use iMovie to create a lively short snackable video like those on NowThis, ATTN: and other social media-driven news organizations.
Video clips, still photos, music and other assets will be provided. Some experience on a Mac would be helpful.
Video editing workshop that will teach you how to:
— Import video and still photos into iMovie
— Edit video clips and crop photos
— Place video and photos into a “timeline”
— Use transitions, including a dissolve, blur and spin-in
— Add the “Ken Burns Effect” panning and zooming into photos
— Make titles
— Put music in the background
— Store your video and get it onto Facebook or YouTube
By the end, you should be able to create your own video that looks something like this: https://bit.ly/2I3hZj6
