Working with Video

Example Two: Advanced Techniques

Here you'll learn some more advanced techniques that will enable you to finesse you work a little more.

Imagine that the below is just the opening of a longer video about the U.S. military in the Arctic with this particular portion being intended to “set the scene” and establish a tone. As you are watch, consider the concepts and techniques that have been discussed so far.

Here is the same video as seen in iMovie:
