Let’s slow it down..then fall

Background

For this video assignment I decided on Instant Replay! which is worth 4 stars. When I started doing this I wasn’t exactly sure what I wanted my main video to be but I knew I didn’t want it to have a lot of words since they would get distorted in the instant replay. I’m a big fan of puppies doing funny things so I searched on YouTube “puppies falling down stairs” since they usually look cute and bounce back pretty quick. I decided on this video since it was of a husky puppy falling and I think huskies are very friendly and look interesting. I also liked how the girl says “Noooo!” as the puppy falls since I thought that would add a funny part to the slow part of the video.

Process

For this video I’m following the same first few steps as my other tutorial when starting a new project and uploading your video. Just open iMovie then click “Create New” -> “movie” -> “import” -> choose the media you want to edit -> “upload” then drag the video down to the bottom bar.

For this video I decided to upload the same content twice and the cut the video to the specific part I wanted to be replayed in slow motion.

To cut the clips I right click the video press “split clip” then right click the video again and press “delete” I keep doing this until I’m happy with the product. I also decided to move the instant reply right behind the first one after creating a split in the first video and then after the replay the rest of the video will play in regular speed. You can move each segment by clicking and dragging it to the desired location.

To change the speed of the clip I selected the clip then clicked the speedometer icon at the top right and from the drop down menu select “slow” and then selected 25% speed.

To export the video just select “file” -> “share” and wherever you want to share it to.

My Creation

Here is my final video. I think it turned out pretty well overall and shows a cute, funny video of a husky puppy that I think would be fun for everybody.
