How to Make a Movie - Directions from Students

Next Vista for Learning recently wrapped up another student video contest. The theme of the latest Next Vista contest was Creative Compositions. There were more than 100 videos submitted. I recently spent some time watching some of the videos and came across this great video, How to Make a Movie Not an Animation. The short video explains how to make simple stop motion movies using iMovie and PowerPoint. 

Applications for Education
I encourage you to check out the list of Creative Compositions submissions in the Next Vista video contest. Going through the list could give you some ideas for video projects that your students can undertake. And in case you're not familiar with Next Vista, the purpose of the site is to have students and teachers share short lessons with each other. All videos are reviewed before appearing on the site.
