Monday, January 11th, 2016 by Jeff Gray, KET

DSC_0041a Walton-Verona High School Bands Director and Media Teacher, Chris Miller, brought his video production students to KET’s Media Lab to explore greenscreen video effects with KET’s Jeff Gray, and to take a tour of the multimedia production facility with KET Producer, Tom Bickel.

Mr. Miller’s talented students were very keen and shared some good project work they’ve done: a school video news magazine made with Apple’s Final Cut Pro editing software. This Halloween special edition includes a feature story on an annual Northern Kentucky attraction, the USS Nightmare. It was a pleasure meeting with Mr. Miller and his WVHS students. Keep up the great work!

Powell County Schools Explore iOS Video at KET Media Lab

Wednesday, December 16th, 2015 by Jeff Gray, KET

DSC_0008aVicky Brown and Jennifer Francis, along with colleagues Kristin Richardson and Connie Nobles from Bowen Elementary, Powell County, brought students to KET’s Media Lab in December for a workshop in iPad Video Production.

These students already make school video projects using traditional camcorders and pcs for editing. Their teachers wanted them to explore using Apple iPads to make complete video productions within the device using the built-in camera and the iMovie editing app. iPads and similar portable devices by other manufacturers represent quite a savings to educators in equipment cost, teaching time, and class project development time.

Here are some pictures of the Bowen Elementary students exploring the iPad for video production. During the workshop they learned the basics of using the iPad camera; capturing good video and audio segments; arranging segments in the iMovie app’s editing timeline; changing segment properties such as length and audio volume; adding text titles; using built-in title/music templates; recording audio into the timeline, and more.

Birds have now replaced the greenscreen background in the video activity, demonstrating how easy it is to introduce a variety of background images and videos into a classroom video project. Students can place themselves and their teammates into any scenario they choose to enhance classroom projects from history to the arts.
