Video Project One: Filming a Welcome Message
The goal of this project is to learn how to create a short video using commonly available technology and then place it on a website. You will be creating a welcome message that will be placed on your Academic Resume Website in Google Sites.
Below is a screen shot from an iPhone video in edit mode. The same features exist in the Android video editing environment, and in all software designed for editing video. Take a look at the diagram, open your phone, and identify each element as you edit a video clip. The goal is always to get rid of as much as possible. "If it doesn't add, it distracts" (Elliot Randal).
Q: When I tap the YouTube upload button, nothing happens. What should I do?
Before you try the options below, confirm that you are signed on to your school Google account on your phone. Close any other applications that are running in the background.
Q: I am unhappy with my grade. Is there anything I can do?
A: Yes. Go back, correct all errors and omissions, and resubmit your work after school, Monday through Thursday. It will only take me a moment to re-grade your work. I will raise your score if you have fulfilled all of the requirements, as long as you resubmit the work in a reasonable amount of time.
Q: What do you mean by the head and tail?
A: I am referring to the beginning and end of the video clip. See the diagram, above. This can be done on the phone itself, or in the YouTube editing environment.
