Give us an honest appraisal (venting?) of your journey around trying to produce your Capstone Project video script. How did you decide what editor (see Explore below) you might use? What problems did you encounter? How did you solve them? The intent is open a useful discussion that can help raise the bar for everyone.
I like templates such as the ones that I filled out for the Capstone Project video script. I think guidelines and templates are important. They serve as a scaffolding tool as well as jump starting device to get the project started and running in the right direction. They also help to clarify ambiguity and help make sure we don't veer off course. The ones that I filled out for the Capstone Project helped me define a clearer picture of what and how I want my video to presented.
I chose to use WeVideo because at my school the tech expert, Mr. Vargas, makes all the school videos using WeVideo and/or IMovie, and I feel that either application will help me get the job done. One feature I like about WeVideo is that it is a Web based tool, meaning that I can access it via the web, do a free trial, subscribe yearly or monthly and quit any time. I am also a little familiar with WeVideo and completely unfamiliar with IMovie.
At my school, I have seen quality, professional videos created by Mr. Vargas using WeVideo and I look forward to learning how to do it as well. To learn how to do a professional video using WeVideo is the most exciting project for me during this graduate program. Using video editing software such as IMovie and WeVideo have the potential to be a significant step up the SAMR latter from using premade video programs like Animoto or Powtoon.
The only problem that I encountered filling out the templates was understanding the heading "Dramatic Question". I just looked at how other people came up with dramatic questions for their Capstone and then I understood what to do.
Besides being time consuming, I didn't encounter other problems filling out the video script template. Despite the effort of time put forth in completing it, it was worth it because now I have a strong outline of how I want my video to look.
