For our multimedia contract, I decided to build upon my knowledge in iMovie. Last year I taught myself the basics in order to do a few class assignments. Last week I expanded upon that base. I watched a few online tutorials on YouTube in order to learn how to add my own personal music from my iTunes library to specific scenes in a project.
Last year, I knew how to add the sounds that iMovie presented, but I could not figure out how to add sections of specific songs that I wanted to a particular part of my movie. I love music, all genres, and I’m a big believer that music and particular songs can act as their own character in a story, so this skill is something I think I’ll use any time I use iMovie in the future. Specifically for this project, I do not want to have all text based information, so I’m thinking of adding a series of videos. I figured when I was talking about the history of the market/showing photos, being able to add my own music and set the mood would help. Additionally, when I do present information in text, this may be a way to add music and make it more exciting.
