For the past week, my students have begun to make book trailers using iMovie. This is really an amazing app and I am so impressed with how the book trailers are developing. I will be sharing more about the book trailers in a future blog post.
My son Robert was watching me learn how to use iMovie and he also got very interested and decided to make his own movies. Take a look at how the movies he made turned out.
This movie is dedicated to our puppy, Wrigley:

And this movie is dedicated to Robert's brother, Ryan, who played in a basketball tournament this past weekend in Fond du Lac:-
Have you ever tried iMovie? It can be a little tricky, so my method of learning how everything worked was to watch You Tube videos. Here was one video that was particularly helpful:
Here is another video that gave me even more indepth information.
In iMovie, you have a choice of making a regular project, which is what the video above is showing, or you can choose to make a book trailer.
What I love most about iMovie is that the app makes it possible for anyone to create a movie that looks professional. When the movie is finished, it looks like a lot of time and effort went into the production. I can't wait to share our book trailers and I am already thinking about the next project that my students can do using iMovie.
I highly recommend giving iMovie a try!
