iMovie magic - Creating watchable movies from a stack of video clips and stills

Presenter: Rob Crocker - iMug member

With the proliferation of iPhones providing the camera that each of us has with us at all times, the taking of stills and movies has escalated, leaving us with literally hundreds of clips from all parts of our daily lives. And what are we doing with them?

One solution is to put them into a meaningful order which we can view and proudly show to others through the use of iMovie. Rob decided to get his many travel clips into a viewable condition and tonight he will show his efforts, which we think you will agree has produced a very commendable result. Join us for a really enjoyable evening.

Rob is one of those brave persons who is prepared to stand before us and demonstrate his journey with iMovie in achieving really excellent results in transforming hours of travel clips to enjoyable, succinct entertaining memories of his various travels, with particular emphasis on Canada and Hawaii.

Rob will describe how he 'self taught', and share his learning with us. He will run through the basics of using iMovie but focus mostly on ways of producing creative movies combining video, stills and music.

In many ways this is an especially valuable evening as he will detail for the rest of us the pathways and traps to avoid, as well as his many successes as we will see on the evening.

This is also an evening where we invite you, our members, to bring an iPad, memory stick or laptop to share your own iMovie experiences. These may well be 5 - 10 minute vignettes but will widen our collective knowledge base. There will be some iTunes cards to those happy to contribute.
