Create a movie trailer based on your character and your class theme. For mine it was spy themed. So, I made mine about a cover for my character. I used iMovie to make mine and it was super fun and simple. Post it to YouTube then blog about! Be creative and have fun with it!

“Secret Agent Squirrel” is the most anticipated movie to come out in 2020. Have you seen the official trailer for it yet?

In order to make this video, I used the Spy trailer template in iMovie. I have made a trailer in iMovie before, but it was more difficult this time because I did not have as much starting material.

This video is basically a compilation of squirrel videos. I found the videos on YouTube and downloaded them using this downloader. It was not too difficult to find funny videos of squirrels. I pretty much downloaded like three or four videos that were between 2 and 5 minutes long. I just grabbed different clips from those videos to put into the template in iMovie.

I used this squirrel video (which is pretty funny), along with this one, this video with a squirrel running, and (1) video with peanut butter, (2) another video with a squirrel and peanut butter.

Something that I found surprisingly difficult to do was come up with a title. For some reason, iMovie made it so the title had to be three lines with the template I chose. The original title I had in mind was just “Mission: Skippy,” but it did not work with the title video. Once I came up with “Secret Agent Squirrel,” I liked it better anyway and decided to go with that for the title.

This video took longer than I expected, but it was fun to make. It definitely meets the standards of a four-star assignment. I was a little worried at the beginning of the week when we had to complete five stars of video assignments related to the class theme or our characters, but I am glad someone created this assignment. I had never made an iMovie trailer on my computer before (I used my phone when I made one a couple of years ago), so it was new, and something I would consider doing again for another assignment.
