This week’s assignment from the Assignment Bank was to create a video of someone signing (finger spelling) a word for others to guess. I thought it would be interesting to see if anyone could figure out the word I chose to spell.
To create this video, I used an iPhone 6 to record the video and edited it with iMovie. I added a title slide at the beginning and end of the video, cropped out some shaky parts and added the Simple jingle from iMovie’s jingle database. Finally, I gave it a title, Guess the Word, and uploaded it to YouTube.
The most difficult part of the project was trying to upload the video to YouTube from iMovie. Over the course of four hours and countless attempts, I still did not get it to work. I guess I’m too stubborn for my own good. Finally, I decided to save the project as a file and initiate the upload from the YouTube website. It worked the first time and only took seconds to upload.
