8th Grade Book Trailer – Final Project Requirements

For your trailer to be complete and turned in, you must have the following items in the Book Trailer folder inside of 2011>English>Book Trailers.

  • Your storyboard file
  • A bibliography file with all of your image and audio credits it should be called Name-BookTrailerDocumentation (ex: Susie-BookTrailerDocumentation)
  • Your final video. It should be exported as a medium m4v file and called Name-Title (ex: Billy-HarryPotter.m4v). (Click here for a tutorial on how to do this.)
    • Your final video MUST have closing credits which lists all of your image and audio credits, in order of appearance.
    • Make sure you create your project as Wide Screen

Here is a list of video tutorials that will help you finish creating your project. If you have a question, please raise your hand. I am happy to teach any of these items if you do not understand the video. If you have never used iMovie and would like more instruction, just ask.
