iMovie - present your own movie trailer

Working with iMovie offers you the possibility to create your own movie trailer. By adding pictures, movies and music you can design your own trailer. You can highlight pictures, show elements of your own films and use your favorite songs for directing the trailer.

In order to work with the program, you need to have a plan for the trailer. What is the theme? What information do you want to present in what specific order? What pictures/movies/sounds do you need then? If you are able to answer these questions in the appropriate way, working with iMovie and mainly, presenting the trailer to your fellow pupils, will be challenging!

Several themes of trailer

iMovie - presenteer je eigen film trailer

Met behulp van iMovie kun je jouw eigen film trailer samenstellen. Door aan een vooraf gekozen thema je eigen geluiden, beelden en filmpjes toe te voegen, creeer je in een handomdraai een professionele film die menigeen zal verrassen.

Om hier adequaat mee te kunnen werken in het onderwijs, is het van belang om voorafgaand aan het werken met het programma een aantal vragen te beantwoorden. Wat wil ik precies presenteren? Welke informatie wil ik in welke volgorde langs laten komen? Welke beelden/geluiden/films moet ik hierbij maken, dan wel opzoeken? Juist het zetten van deze stappen maakt het werken met het programma ideaal om de gevonden informatie te presenteren aan de rest van de groep. En reken maar dat ze geboeid zullen zijn!


Usando iMovie hai la possibilità di creare il trailer del tuo film. Bast aggiungere immagini, video e musica per realizzare il tuo trailer. Puoi modificare le immagini, mostrare elementi particolari del tuo film e usare le tue canzoni preferite per il tuo trailer.

Prima di cominciare a usare il software, devi avere in mente in piano d'azione per il tuo trailer. Qual è il tema? Quali informazioni vuoi presentate e in quale ordine? Di quali immagini/video/suoni hai bisogno? Se puoi rispondere a queste domande in modo appropriato, allora sei pronto per cominciare a sviluppare il tuo trailer con iMovie e a presentarlo ai tuoi studenti... Sarà entusiasmante!
