Computing – Video Trailers

In computing this term, the children have been looking at books and creating video trailers as a tool to encourage other children to read them.  We started the unit by looking at different trailers for books and films both with the sound on and off to see what effect the sound effects and music had on us.

The children chose a favourite book and worked in pairs to create storyboards so they could plan their trailer trailer.

Next came the photos!

And finally, the video trailers themselves.  The children had to think about the transitions from one image to the next using techniques such as cross fade, dip to black, wipe. They also had to add music and some text. The results are amazing!
