4. Editing and Promoting
The editing process is full of decision making but very time consuming.Trying to get a large group involved in every step can be difficult.
Since I have a projector/ interactive whiteboard set up in my room, I have them edit (using iMovie which they pick up right away) by touching
the whiteboard. This way they can all see and make important decisions together on things like:
Which was the best take from our footage (Students love bloopers, so mark the funny mistakes to save for the "making of..." video later)
What transitions to use
What and where to add titles
When to start and stop audio
When the rough edit is done, I work with one or two detailed and patient students who love computers to do the final edit.
Here is the Bloopers video for
The Glue Blues.
And a patient student learning how to edit
Promoting your student video is a very important step. Upload the video to a hosting site like
(if your school doesn't block it).
Once you've uploaded it send out the link to your staff, parents, and families and embed in on your school webpage.
Try hosting a premiere at your school at an assembly, during an evening in the media center, or on the broadcast of the morning announcements.
Send it to your local cable station so they can air student made movies to the community to show off how their tax dollars are invested.
Enter it into
a local festival
or children's film festival like
Chicago's International Children's Film Festival
Swept Away Premiere Invitation
(included a door prize entry for Free DVD of the video).
Take a promo photo and
make a flyer
, have it
printed on a T-shirt
, make a poster, and
post it on your website
See if the
papers are interested
in knowing about the cool things happening in your classroom.
