This introduction course will provide participants with iMovie's basic approach to video editing, as well as providing additional insights into a wider range of special features and functionality. All training is hands-on and project led.

This course will enable candidates to log and capture footage, edit in the iMovie environment and create a short movie using cuts and transitions, apply audio & sound combined with visual effects, filters, and export to various platforms.

The two-day course offers more practical hands-on exercised and time to explore all the features of iMovie and to produce a short video.

This workshop-style course can also be tailored to suit each company or individual's objectives and to produce usable footage to take away.
