Adobe Premiere Clip is a fantastic mobile video app that does quite a bit, as well as having a seamless connection with Adobe Premiere Pro. Over at my site Confessions of a Media Arts Teacher, I posted about how it was the perfect app to introduce to the Preps how to edit, sequence and export a movie.
I thought this was ideal for the little guys who are learning how to make movies for the first time. I assigned every student a colour in their group and sent them out with an iPad to film short 4 second clips of objects with that colour. I made a note of which group had which iPad. This is where it helps to have numbered iPads!
Between that session and the next, I created a project for them using Premiere Clip. Since I knew which videos were which, this was the easiest way to do it. I bundled their videos into a project and named it with one of the student’s name and their class.
In the second session, the students learned how to find their project, open it up and group the clips in order. So, in one group, all the yellow clips were together, all the blues, all the reds, etc. We then looked at how to remove the audio from their videos and finally how to choose music that is supplied with the app that they could put on the movie.
In the final session, we looked at how to put titles in their movies. I wanted cards that had written the colour before the clips came on. I then showed them how to put credits at the end.
The movies came out beautifully. Yes, the students could be quite shakey when filming, but that will improve with time. The important thing is that they learned how movies are made up of clips, and about the role of music and titles in a movie project.
