My Life - Video Tutorials.

Students will create a photo movie about themselves, My Life. The content of each individual movie should reflect on a student’s life beyond school. They will import their images into Photos and edit their movie using Final Cut Pro. They will be given the opportunity to borrow a camera from the class or they are welcome to use their own cameras.
