Once I had gotten my video footage, the next step was to start editing all of the footage together. The first thing I did was select “new movie” when imovie opened, I then imported all of the videos from my phone into the library.
Once the clips had all imported, I started watching them and then thought about which ones I wanted in the final video. To do this, I pressed ‘I’ where I wanted the clip to start and ‘O’ where I wanted it to finish. After I did this, I then dragged the clip down to the bottom bar where I would be able to piece them all together.
After all of the clips were edited to the right length and were all in order on the bottom timeline bar, I had to start adding transitions so that the clips wouldn’t jump to the next so quickly and so it ran through more smoothly. Once I had selected the ones i wanted, I dragged them down to in between the clips.
In order to introduce the video, I added a title clip. This made sure that the audience watching the video would have a clear understanding of what the video was about.
Another thing I did was add captions throughout the whole video. Because my video was lookbook and fashion inspired, I thought it would be effective to show where the items of clothing and accessories were from.
The last thing I added to my video was music. Because of copyright issues, I was unable to to add proper music so I went through the audio library on imovie instead, I ended up finding a track that I found quite fitting so it worked out pretty well. Although, at the start of my video, the music came in too loud so I had to find a way to edit it. To do this I edited the sound volume, I did this by making the music slowly fade in. This was fairly easy to do as there was already a small circle which controlled the volume levels, I just dragged this and it made the music get louder so it was easier to adjust.
I also added audio of the person I interviewed talking about the outfit they were wearing, this was fairly easy to do as I just did the same thing that I did for the music.
