Movie Making in the Classroom: Editing the Video

By Beth Newingham on April 4, 2013
  • Grades: 3–5

This is the final stage of our movie-making project. The scenes we have filmed are imported into the computer and edited using a software program called Pinnacle Studio. It is a user-friendly program that includes many great features including built-in music, titles, transitions, and DVD menus. I burn the final movie to a DVD and send that copy home with students as a traveling DVD so that students can enjoy a “movie night” with their families and friends when they get to bring it home. We also show some of our best movies to the entire school on the morning announcements.

At the end of the school year, I put all of the movies on a single DVD and make a copy for each student as an end-of-the year gift. The class movies I have made with my classes in recent years can also be viewed in Windows Media Player on our class website.

Watch all the movies my students and I have ever made!
