No lie. We'll watch half and take notes, then have a Quizizz break, then finish it. That's a LOT of information.
Many teams filmed videos on our cameras, which were set for a video format named AVCHD. Premiere doesn't get along with AVCHD. It prefers a video format called MP4.
Since we recorded on AVCHD, because it works with iMovie, we have two choices if you've already filmed a movie.
The benefit of refilming is easy. All I have to do is flip one switch on the camera, and we're in the right format for Premiere.
If you filmed a project that you haven't been able to import to Premiere, get with me in class on Tuesday. After school, I will delete all videos from the cameras unless you tell me otherwise. This means you will need to know which camera you used. If not, we should delete the files and move on.
This guy's nerd credibility is off the chart. I have a feeling you'll be seeing more of his tutorials while I make my own. He makes Adobe Premier look easy. 🤷♂️
To import your stuff, you'll need to remember which camera you used to film. Look at the top and the number is engraved there, like this one.
Take the camera and a camera cable to your desk. You don't need the part that plugs into the wall, just the camera and the cable.
Let's start working in Premiere if we haven't already. Important things to remember:
Here's my first tutorial on how it works. Onward.
The main goal of Media Production is for you to take home a camera and make your own video. Here are three great student examples, all less than two minutes each.
The first is a Theme Video meant to convey the emotion of loneliness. To get instructions of how to do this, hover over Video Projects, then select Theme Video, and follow the instructions to write and plan it.
Next is a cooking video. Want to make one? Hover over Video Projects, then select Cooking Show. Follow the steps to plan and film it.
Here's a great short film from last year. Want to make one of your own? Hover over Video Projects, then select Short Film and follow the steps.
Here's a Film Trailer. Any guesses on what to do? OF COURSE!
Hover over Video Projects at the website, click Film Trailer, then do the things.
Bad camera work makes you nauseous. Eww. Watch this video to see the difference.
Here's how to find it again.
When your volleyball video is finished, grab a Grading Rubric for Video Projects from the back of the room. Here's what it looks like.
iMovie is doing strange things with our software upgrade. On many machines, it works fine. On others, it crashes whenever you import video. I'm in contact with our tech department, looking at other editing programs we can use. Here's what I need from you:
If iMovie is working fine, keep on going.
If it isn't, I'll have news on what we're doing each week, and I'll have other assignments for you to work on. They won't be as fun as video editing, but make sure you do them. Stay in your seat. Allow me to figure out what we will do as a department. If I can't do this because I'm spending the hour correcting your behavior, I might step up the pink slips or referrals for your group. This is a huge task to undertake while the school year is in session, so help me help you by giving me the freedom to manage the department instead of managing misbehaviors.
Our objective for today? I can set up my bookmarks in Safari. Here's how it works.
If you can't see your bookmarks, click View, then select Show Favorites Bar. It's the third line down.
Next, grab each of these bookmarks and drag them to your Bookmarks Bar, putting them in order as you see here.
I'll check your bookmarks during the next few days for a participation grade. Make sure you have them all, and make sure your capital letters are in the right place.
I asked for too many papers at the beginning of the term. Shoulda known it.
If you turned in a storyboard for your Change script, check the In Box. It may still be there. If so, take it back. I won't have time to grade them with everything else going on. Plan out your shots as we've outlined, though. If not, you'll spend your filming time figuring out how they should look, instead of taking the pictures after you've already planned them.
Today is one of those days. For today's lesson, we need to do a few things.
Turn the volume all the way down on your computer by pressing F10.
Take your notes, as always.
After that, we'll pass out the headphones and make sure they work.
Edit Volleyball without bugging our neighbors.
Sound like fun? It is. Here's how it's done.
Press play when I do, but turn on the closed captions on your YouTube browser so you can read the text and take notes. Thanks. 😀
I stayed late on Tuesday and updated all of our Macs to the same operating system. Your desktop wallpaper may be different today. If so, let's change it so that each class has the same wallpaper.
Some of my classes are one day ahead of everyone else. For them, we'll have a work day. For everyone else, we'll catch up and all be on the same page for Friday.
We should edit every play of both games. Your rough footage is 52 minutes long. My finished edit of both games together is nearly 18 minutes long, so take your time. Want to see what the finished project should look like? Take a look down below.
The point of the assignment is to make so many edits with the dreaded COMMAND B that you can edit video in your sleep. It should take a week or so to create, and we haven't done much with music or credits yet. They're coming tomorrow, and the day after, and the day after that, so relax and enjoy the process.
