First of all, here is my video from Challenge 2 . . . https://vimeo.com/68539965. I tried using music from my iTunes account. It’s tough to find music that works well with a 25 second video. Have all of you figured out how to mute the audio within your video? In iMovie you double click the video on the timeline and move the audio tab to “off”. If want to leave the natural sound on, iMovie automatically reduces the sound level of your music so you can hear both audio tracks. At the end of my 5×5 I did this during the arm wrestling part if you want to check out how it sounds.
Now, on to Challenge 3! For the rest of the summer most of your challenges will be in the form of a 5×5, but with different techniques to focus on. My hope is that by the end of the summer you have a large variety of clips to put together for a “Summer of 2013” video. Check out one of my first family videos “A Speelman Summer”. Notice that the clips are quite short . . . anywhere from 5- 8 seconds each. The quality is not that great because I really didn’t know what I was doing :), but my kids still love watching it!
For Challenge 3 you will be creating a 5×5 with still photos in between each video. I’d like this 5×5 to be focused on one event . . . at the park, at the pool, at the zoo- anything you are doing this week. Be sure to shoot both photos and video! I shot mine in the backyard of the kids playing with our brand new $29 inflatable pool 🙂 Some of my stills are from my camera roll and some are from Instagram. Here it is. . .
You may decide to add still photos in with your final “Summer of 2013” video. Here is an example of a “Fusion” video that includes both . . . https://vimeo.com/56562585 Go out and have fun! I’m LOVING the videos I’ve seen from all of you so far. PLEASE share your work! We love seeing it and we ALL learn from it!
