Are you interested in having your students make movies to demonstrate their learning? Have you thought about getting students to run a TV station at your school? 

If so, don't miss this! 

iMovie to Final Cut: A two part module on this important topic 25th Feb and 4th March. Experienced educator and multimedia teacher Dr. Tim Kitchen of Strathcona Baptist Girls Grammar School will be showing participants how to use this software to make movies and even to to create your own TV station at school. Final Cut, the consumer version of Final Cut Pro is designed for advanced editing of digital video as well as high-definition video, can be used for very simple video editing yet has the power to do some very creative special effects. It is the backbone of Strathcona Baptist Girls Grammar School’s multimedia courses and TV station. Tim will also demonstrate the power and ease of manipulating video to help make the learning and teaching process more engaging and creative. There is also an opportunity to take a tour though the functioning TV station at Strathcona. 

Move up from iMovie! Final Cut Pro is considered by many in the TV, Video & Film industry as the industry standard video editing software. Final Cut Express is the affordable version that is ideal for schools who are looking for a video editing solution that is simple to use and does not have the limitations of iMovie. This is a two part hands-on workshop to be run at the Strathcona Baptist Girls Grammar School Multimedia Centre. 

Dr Tim Kitchen, the Head of Learning Technologies at Strathcona will be guiding participants through the art of filming on location and in the Strathcona TV studio. Final Cut Express, Apple's LiveType, Garage Band & iDVD will all be taught and used to create short video stories (that feature special effects like chroma keying) that can be burned onto DVD or exported into an Internet friendly file for downloading or streaming. 

All participants will receive a CD of video tutorials created by Dr Kitchen for future reference. 

Maximum of 15 participants . 

WHEN: Part 1: Thursday, 25th February 4 - 6.30 pm
