Creating Professional Videos with iMovie

Characteristics Of This Class:

With the inclusion of HD recording in Apple iPhones and built-in cameras on most laptops, you've got everything you need to create compelling, engaging videos in iMovie. One of the smartest, best-selling ways to gain additional visibility for your product or service is to create customer testimonials and how-to videos to share online.

This is a special Bring Your Own Computer class, so please bring a laptop with iMovie installed and ready to run!

This class will cover:
  • Writing a script
  • Recording different types of footage
  • Importing & ordering your shots
