WINDOWS MOVIE MAKER INTRODUCTION
You will be making a number of movies as you get older and create presentations for class, family and friends. Movie Maker is a free program that allows you to upload, edit, add titles and effects, and then publish a movie to send to people. The more organized you are, the easier it will be to follow the steps below and use this software.
Watch the following clip on your own to get an idea of what a Movie Marquis is. You will then choose pictures, music, and effects to create a Personal Movie Marquis (PMM). Your PMM is a short movie clip (10-15 seconds) that you will add to the end of any other movie you create. The Movie Marquis you are creating should be a reflection of your personality, and is intended to let people know who created the movie it is shown with. A PMM can be used at the end or the beginning of a movie. You should pretend you are creating a Movie Production Studio, and give some thought to the kind of movies and messages you would like to support. Be creative and have fun with this project. It can be serious, funny or anything you want it to be. Please make sure you use the clip you created in Soundation for this project. You may find pictures and other video clips online.
Please create a Personal Movie Marquis in Windows Movie Maker. It should be 10 to 15 seconds long, and use audio, pictures/video, titles and effects. You must create your music for this project with Soundation. You may not use commercially available music. When you have edited the movie and created it, please use the SAVE Movie Function to save the file and the video to the desktop. Upload that file to your Google Drive and share it with me for credit for the project.

Students will be able to use Windows Movie Maker to create a short (10-15 second) Movie Marquis (Logo). Students will be given an introduction to Windows Movie Maker today. Before we start with Movie Maker, you will watch a short video about Movie Studio Logo’s. Please complete the Google Classroom Assignment.
Project: Each Student will create a Movie Marquis using Windows Movie Maker. You must be able to save your work, export your Movie, and upload it to your Google Drive. You will then SHARE your file with me for credit.
YOU NEED YOUR OWN EARBUDS TO WORK ON THIS!
