Savannah Visit- Windows Movie Maker Class Demo

Alesia and I just had a wonderful weekend in Charleston's sister city Savannah. I took a bunch of photos there and decided to use this trip for a demonstration I gave in class Monday night on producing slideshows and videos using Windows Movie Maker.

This is just a start...
I do like what I think is a new Movie Maker feature- what on iMovie is called the Ken Burns Effect. This is the movement within each shot you see. Here's an example of this production technique from Burns' highly regarded Civil War documentary.

I think it must be pretty cool for Ken Burns to know this panning and zooming technique is names for him. Most iMovie users probably have no idea who is his, however....

By the way, last November I produced an iMovie video tutorial. Check it out if you need some help with iMovie.

Beyond Death and Dying with Dr. George Dickinson

I was pleased on March 28 to have Dr. George Dickinson return to my "Beyond the Grave" class to share his expertise on "death, dying and bereavement," the unique topic for which he is an internationally recognized research expert and author.

In thanks for his second visit this school year, I presented Dr. Dickinson with a signed copy of my 2014 book, "In the Arms of Angels: Magnolia Cemetery- Charleston's Treasure of History, Mystery and Artistry." Thanks to Hannah Dunnaway for taking this photograph.

Last semester when he visited this class, I posted a detailed recap of what I thought were some of the professor's key points.

Here's the link to that post.

Thank you so much, George, for another great presentation. I hope you'll come back next school year!
