THIS INVOLVES RECORDING SOUND TO GO WITH THE SLIDESHOW.
Throughout the week, use your smartphone, or the video setting on your dslr, to record audio clips. Record ambient sound of the noon rallies, the march, or assembly, and/or interview classmates or friends about the Homecoming celebration.
STEP #2. During the week, save your images and audio files in a folder on your desktop. The following week we will edit your images in Photoshop and then combine them with the audio clips to create a multimedia slideshow in iMovie. We will discuss the particulars of those processes at a later date.
STEP #3. Your goal right now is to capture the events of this week in stills and sound. Bring your camera every day. Don’t forget to record your audio and check the sound quality throughout the week. You do not want “holes” in your project.
STEP #4. After Homecoming week is over, edit the images you want to include in the slideshow. (OPTIONAL)
Resize your images and put them into an iMovie slideshow.
Add titles and transitions to the project and the sound you gathered (and music you want to use).
STEP #5. Once you have completed you slideshow video, export it as an mp4.
Title your project: yourlastname_hcoming.
