iMovie app – Trailers

iMovie for iOSTrailers

Trailers are a fun way of creating movie previews by combining pre-made storyboards and existing graphic templates.

When starting a new trailer, there’s a choice of different movie genres, all containing sample footage as inspiration. Choosing a genre will take you to an outline view, where you put the name of your movie and the credits. From there you move to the storyboard tab to see what shots you need to fill in. Then you can either photograph or video your shots. You can set the start and end point of each transition on the photos or video to create the mood you need.

The trailer feature is a lot of fun, and gives you an awesome movie trailer at the end of the process.  iMovie is a great place for kids to start filming and learning the filmmaking process.

The only problem is its a paid app and it’s quite expensive $6.49 and it takes up 643MB of your iPad storage.
