Taking your videos to the next level

So far we’ve used videos and photos, transitions, as well as text and narration. You told us what makes good videos!

windows-movie-maker-2012-08-535x535Today we want to make video projects which include:

  • Photos and videos
  • Transitions
  • Text (title, captions, credits)
  • Narration

As well as adding in some new features:

  • Sound
  • Pan and zoom
  • Visual effects

Stock sound

Stock video

There are some downloaded to Pupil Shared > Videos as well as these…


Many vloggers use screen recording software to be able to show what they’re doing in a game, or talking through something they’re looking at on their computer. We’ve got a couple of ways of doing this:

  • CamStudio Lite (new shortcut on your desktop) – there’s an FAQ page here
  • MediaCore Capture (extension within Google Chrome) – there’s a help page here

Making Videos

What does a good video look like?

What can we use to make our own?windows-movie-maker-2012-08-535x535

We’re going to use Windows Movie Maker to make our own. This is free with all Windows computers, so you can get it free at home if you haven’t already got it – remember to check with an adult first.

There’s a useful guide to Getting started with Windows Movie Maker

Some people have also shared tips on how to get some good effects with Movie Maker in various YouTube videos.


Where can we get stock videos from?

There are lots of websites where you can get stock videos from. Some of them you need to pay for, others you need to have an account with, and a few are free and easy! Here are some of the easiest ones I’ve found:


Antarctica is made up of the Antarctica mainland and the island around it.

Should organ donation be compulsory or voluntary?

In the UK once you have reached the age of 18 you have the choice to donate your organs to those who may need a transplant because they are ill. When you are children it is down to your parents to decide whether or not to donate organs. Many people do donate their organs or are on the organ donor register. They do this by choice. Do you think it should be compulsory (they have to do it) or voluntary (their choice)? Comment below and leave your opinion.

Father and son

Today I took Lewis go-karting. We did 2 rounds of 15 minutes on the track, Lewis came 4th on the first 15 minute race and I came 7th, but on the 2nd 15 minutes race I came second, and Lewis came 7th. Lewis is a brilliant driver and I think he could go far if he keeps it up. We all had a great day . Craig Smith (Lewis’s Dad)

I WANT TO GO AGAIN ….!!!! By Lewis

Yesterday was the best day because I went to an indoor go -karting track, I went with my mum , my uncle Shane and his girlfriend Carly.I had to get dressed into some cool racing overalls and a helmet, then sit and listen to the man talking about how to drive the go-kart, and about the different signs;

  • Red = stop
  • Amber = go slow
  • Green (my favourite) = floor it / go as fast as you dare.

When I first got on the track I wasnt really scared until I went down the big slope, but after I did it once I wasnt scared and went really fast.  When we came off for a 15 minute break, a man who I was racing against, said to my mum “he is very good, and fearless”, I think thats a good thing, haha.

I went even faster on my second go but my uncle over took me, but I will beat him next time.

I want to go again … I cant wait to go again !!!!!

Lewis’s Joke’s

Guess what we did at are first school trip , well it was so much fun I wont be able to tell you all the things but I  will tell you my very favourite things  that we did .First we went to the downstairs area and my teacher said that we could explore half of the downstairs area and then do the other half. There was a spinning wheel and what you had to do was you had to just literally get on and it would be moving so so fast so fast that I nearly fell off me an my friends were laughing so much through out the whole day. We did lots of other things that  were really fun but I am going to skip right forwards to my luxurious and favourite part of the whole museum .That was when we went to the planetarium to watch a movie and it was the biggest sight ever and then everyone got given big 3D glasses and there was big sights of the solar system and then we learned more facts about all the dwarf planets and all the normal planets . Anyway it was the best school trip in the universe and i would like to thank all the staff for making it happen!!!!!!!!!!!

On the week and I rode my bike to my friends house and no the way I tryd to do a wheely  than I was to scared so I holdid the braks  and than I fall of my bike and it rille hartid.
