iMovie Trailers

There are lots of great things happening in your school district or classroom right now.  Are you telling those stories?  If you don't start telling those stories,  someone else will!
An easy way to showcase those events is by using the iMovie app.  Yes, it is a bit pricey at $4.99, but the the benefits far outweighs the cost. 
One of my favorite features of the iMovie app is the Trailer feature.  There are 12 themes to choose from.  You can preview each theme to get a feel for each one before choosing your final product. All the goodies (sound, transitions, text) are there, you just have to supply the video and a little creativity with your wording.
Here are a couple examples of trailers for our Winter Sports Season:

We are showcasing these particular "stories" and various others by sharing via our district hashtag, #aurorahuskies and will be placing an insert in the basketball program tomorrow night to tip off our Winter Sports season that looks like this:

Start sharing your story today by using the iMovie app!

  1. We must be of like mind. I just read Jason Fried's book, Rework, and he shared that same thought about telling your story. Just tonight I made an iMovie trailer about an event in our school.
