Food Design Class – An Intro & Resources

Grade 6: Playing with iMovie

You all have different skills and experience with using iMovie.  After creating your research plan, think about what you want to learn and do some inquiry into iMovie.  Below is a playlist I have put together of good tutorials, but you are not limited to these resources.

Link to playlist here.

Also, make sure you play with iMovie to practice and learn these skills.  You won’t learn by just watching the video and not trying to create something in iMovie.  The more you play, the better you’ll get at movie making!

Everything is a REMIX

As you start to design your remix, I want you to consider your own creativity.  Use other people’s works to create something cool and original.  Put your own spin on it.  Add your own perspective.

The more you create and regard media, design and art through the lens of a designer, the more original and creative your pieces will become.

If you need more copies of the storyboard template, you can find them here.

If you have time on your hands, this is an interesting series called Everything is a Remix.  I think it’s really good.  However, I think that it is more directed towards adults.  I’ve shown examples in class that I think connects more closely to media and culture of your generation, but this video is really interested and I think can introduce you to some great music and artists from the past fifty years and will deepen your understanding of copyright, fair use as it pertains to a remixer.
