Do I Have to Share Media Appropriately?

 

THINK

Yes.   But, I want to talk about the bigger picture here, not just the threat of being sued or getting in trouble.  I want you to share media appropriately because it is right.  Because you are a creator and you don’t want people just stealing your work.  Right?

Creators should have the choice to share their work and have their work remixed and mashed up.

Don’t you think?

Should people have to be original or creative in someway to benefit from their work?

First, I am going to talk about “Girls” by Beastie Boys.  This is a great example AND it brings me back to my middle school days.  Yes, this song was cool back in the day.

Learning through Play: iMovie

I can’t (and won’t) teach you everything about movie editing.  Part of learning how to do things is figuring out what you want to learn and then seeking out that information and ultimately playing around with it.

Today I’m going to do a quick basic overview of iMovie as a review.  You may have a different version of iMovie – that’s okay.  Just search for tutorials with your version or be a THINKER and try to figure out how to do things on your version by looking at the different tools.  The versions are a little different, but mostly just different in their displays.

After we do a quick overview, you will break into two groups… STOP MOTION or GREEN SCREEN

You watch a tutorial and play around with iMovie – you will need to create something and share it with small group.

Have fun!
