On the Prowl for more Book Videos

Gail Giles has quickly become one of my favorite authors.  Her novel What Happened to Cass McBride is on the South Carolina Young Adult Book Award List for 2008-2009.

The process for this simply done book video/trailer can be easily replicated by students, providing us with a complete set of videos for the SCYABA list for 2008 – 2009.  In the case of the above video, there were a total of 31 screen shots, 16 of which were text. 

For a complete tutorial on how to use Windows Movie Maker, click here.  About.com has created a Desktop Video series dividing the process of creating and publishing a video to the web into 11 steps.  Each step is explained and many of them have video tutorials.  Of course, you will have to deal with the inevitable advertisement at the beginning of each tutorial, but it is worth the short wait for each one.
