#StudiousSeptember: Mastering iMovie

6 Oct

During my years in college, I have never had to record and compose a video. When I first opened iMovie, I had no idea what I was doing. I tried familiarizing myself with the tools and everything, but I still made no progress.

I am a person who does not like to ask questions when trying something knew. I would rather struggle for hours to figure it out on my own.

Steps to be successful in creating a video on iMovie

  1. When recording with a phone, make sure you hold the phone horizonally.
  2. Allow three seconds of silence before your subject begins talking and three seconds when they are done.
  3. Once you have videos uploaded make sure to add transitions.
  4. Listen for how each section ends.

Through this process I learned never to give up. Continue trying till you goals are accomplished. Life challenges are not easy, but determination and will power will get you as far as you truly want to go.
