You will create a short video (5 minutes, max) using iMovie. The purpose of the movie will be to instruct or train a person or group of people on an idea, skill, or procedure that may be required in your program of study. Your movie can be a combination of video clips and still clips (photos). Each movie will be required to have a title slide, a credits slide, and a minimum of 2 transitions.
