Create a Movie Trailer using iMovie…

So lets say you have a lot of clips but nothing that you can make a good movie with. You still want to share what you have with friends. What should you do? How about making a movie trailer with some fast paced audio and fun titles. Using iMove this is simple and fun. The results will amaze you and your friends. It is very simple and has that professional look of a Hollywood studio.

Lets start by opening iMovie and creating a new project. Scroll down and you will see the trailer section. By clicking on a trailer you will get a sample view of what the theme looks like and the audio. Select the one that best fits your project. First you will complete the outline section. Each outline is slightly different. You will have sections for credits such as video, producer, actors and studio.

Once you complete this section you can edit the storyboard. Each section of text between clips can be edited or customized to fit your trailer. Finally you will fill in the shot list. This list will need several clips in each section. Clips are normally between 15 seconds and 1 minute. To begin simply highlight a section you want to use and iMovie will load it to the next section of the trailer. It will also trim the clip to the size needed so try to be close to the correct size when you select.

Once you are finished and view your creation it is time to share. You have several options here including a direct share to several of the more popular video host sites. Again this is a great way to take footage you can’t use for a full video and create something fun and different. Hope you enjoyed this… Thanks for reading!
