Quick notes for how to create an excellent iMovie:
CONTENT IS THE WHOLE POINT
All the special effects and jazzy stuff on the planet
can’t make up for zero content.
- PLAN / Outline – do this on paper. Get a list of what you want to say, and what shots/footage/audio you’ll need.
- Gather Material – collect all your parts. Take notes on paper, listing what you’ve collected. Seriously, this will save you TONS of time and aggravation.
I suggest using the Camera app to shoot your material instead of using iMovie. It’s faster.
- Start iMovie Project
- Import Material – from the camera roll, or wherever else you’ve stashed it.
- Editing – making all the parts fit
Add special effects
Add/edit audio [check volume levels!]
