Tutorial: Lavender Running

Here I used Movavi to create this short movie of Elle running as she learned her new superpower. First, we went outside and did some video with my phone and she was a little trooper it was HOT. This program is AWESOME and so easy to use.

First I uploaded the videos to the application and then added my title cards.

By chosing the T option you get many differnet types of title cards you can choose from. Click the titile box once you have moved your card into place and begin typing.

As you can see here…

Then start clipping your videos, once you choose one video they all drop in line in the order they were downloaded. You will need to move them around in the order you want them to appear.

Once you have your clips in order, then start to add your fades to create a good transition between the scenes. I chose to fade to black and ripple in my video.

Then I sped her up, you click on the clip and can drag the speed from left to right, I went right to make her appear to run faster and I did this on all clips where she was running.

Then I added audio, GOD HELP ME Audacity. I recorded the Eye of The Tiger from Soundcloud into the Audacity program and saved it to my computer and uploaded it into Movavi.

Uploaded to Movavi and dragged and dropped it into my audio block as you can see as greenish in the screenshot.

I then added my end credits by adding cards.

I then reviewed my movie and imported it to my computer. I then uploaded it to YouTube and embedded it into my blog.

Tutorial: Good vs. Evil short movie

I used Canva to create this assignment of the unicorn that is good but also evil. I first found a picture of a castle with a bridge and uploaded it to Canva. I then dragged the photo of the good uncorn to the picture and chose to remove background.

Background remover…

I then added a text box by clicking the T for Text and choosing the Text box and added my text of Good.

I then chose to animate my picture by choosing animate and picking which animation I liked the best which was tumble.

I then moved to the next picture of the evil unicorn and followed the same steps as above.

I used the same background in this step and added the test by choosing the T icon and add heading. I also chose to animate this and chose tumble for this one also.

With the last slide of the short movie I chose to use the same background, animate and add text.

I chose this assignment because I got to have a fun time with my kids. They had such a fun time in their new costumes. Here are two young girls on the fight of their lives to stop the dangerous fire-spitting llama, Rainbow. They will stop at nothing to save the world from driving the bat Minnie mobile in circles to shooting beams of powerful light at the dangerous llama. These girls are on a mission, and they will do anything to rid the world of the danger of this horrible villain.

Tutorial:

I used windows movie editor to create that trailer. I first started by taking videos of the girls and also pictures. I then opened the video editor and began adding the clips and pictures to the project. I used the Add tab that is marked with a + in the left-hand top corner.

I then created my Title pages by using the Add title card option in the center of the screen, I then chose the type of page set up that I wanted and begin adding my title pages, including the featuring page and name of the movie page. This is by choosing which blue box you would like to add text to. Add your text and move on to the next title page until you are done with your introduction to the trailer.

I then began to drop and drag my videos and pictures into the sequence that I wanted them to appear in the trailer.

Here you can see where I trimmed the video. In odder to do this you chose Trim in the top left and movie the blue bars to the place you want the video to either stop or start, You just use your mouse cursor to do this.

Here you can see that I chose the tab in the middle of the top of the page for 3D effects as I placed sparkles behind the car as the girls drove by and with the Llama’s fire mouth.

I created that effect here also.

And here also..

I then finished the video by adding my background music by choosing background music and picking the sound that I liked best. Top right corner.

Here I chose the music.

I then finished the trailer by adding the final title cards to create the credits and production name.

I chose this assignment to capture parts of my normal day with my girls. This has been a summer of reflection and sitting back and watching my girls this summer has been my top priority. I have been very busy trying to do it all and I look forward to the 31st when I can take a much need break. So here is the story of my day. I hope you like it.

Tutorial:

I used windows video editor to create this movie. I first made several videos of my kids, dog, morning routine, and drive. I then chose the add button shown in the left-hand right corner by the + sign to upload my videos into the system. The system creates blocks as you can see them in blue, this program was very easy to use. You choose the video that you want and drag and drop it into one of the blue blocks.

The next step was to create the title pages and the pages with the names in the blocks, here you choose, which is visible in the previous screen shot , add title card and place that block where you want it to appear in the movie. Once that has been placed, choose to add text to the block, here you can choose an animated test style, I choose JOY and typed int the text block what I wanted to appear in the movie.

Here you can see that I have added my video clips to the blocks by dragging and dropping them to create my movie.

At the end of the movie I created the credits page, I used the process that I used at the beginning, I chose to add title card at the bottom of the screen to the left and added the block, I then chose JOY again and added the credits and final page to the movie.

This step I saved my work, the right top of the screen there is a tab that say save my work. I chose that tab and chose to then export my video to my laptop.

Once uploaded to my laptop I needed to upload my movie to YouTube, here I dragged and dropped my file into YouTube.

I then saved my video in YouTube, and uploaded the video to my blog.

I Know Everything Spubble…2 STARS

This assignment was a joy! I love involving my kids in my work. This is a girl on a mission and no one will stand in her way. She is on her way to work and expects everyone do do their job. She is bossy and knows how to throw a temper tantrum when things do not go as planned. So watch out world she is coming to get you.

I know everything

For this post I used paint to create the spubble, the two websites that were provided no longer worked.

This is my daughter right before I was going to take her to school. She was showing her normal attitude while we wait for my oldest to be picked up on the bus. I used this picture because it shows Elle’s attitude and personality so well. She is a spitfire and I love this photo of her.

I moved the picture to paint and edited the picture with the spubble. I chose the icon that looked like a spubble and added text into the spubble.

I the saved the photo in paint. I then uploaded the picture to Flickr.

I then copied and pasted the photo from Flickr and embedded into my post.
