60 Second Recaps - 5th Period

By Reid and Wesley

This week, in computer class, we had tons of fun making 60 second recaps of a book or movie of our choice. A 60 second recap is a quick summary of a book or movie that we enjoy. First, you pick a movie or book that you would like to do. Next, you choose if you would like to use drawn animation, stop motion pictures, videos that you filmed for your book or movie, or pictures for your recap. There was a wide variety of apps that students in our class used. Some examples are... iMovie, Imotion, Doink, and Stop Motion. After you finished grouping together the short videos or pictures for your video, you add voiceover.

Your voiceover for the 60 Second Recap should briefly describe your book or movie. It should also give the people watching the recap an idea of what your book or movie is about. Make sure that your 60 Second Recap looks smooth; also listen to your voiceover to make sure it is not choppy. Once you are comfortable with your video, get a couple of people in your class to watch it. If there is nothing that you need to fix your 60 Second Recap is completed, and you can enjoy watching it with your own class!

60 Second Recaps

By Jack D. 

Have you ever wanted to tell someone about a book or movie, but you only had 60 seconds? You probably haven't, but our newest project in computer class is making a 60 second recap of our favorite book or movie. 

I think that this project will really help us in the future, when we need to make a video in a specific time. I hope that my fellow students understand the importance of this newfound skill. Below are some pictures of our class working as well as mine and Maggie Wood's 60 second recaps. Enjoy!

This week for Mrs. Conway's class we have to do a 60 second movie or book recap. We could use whatever app we wanted to make the movie but one of the choices was Superimpose. It is a really cool app that you can put something in a different background and can mask images. We were assigned to put a animal head on your face and put a background behind you. It was really neat that you can do that. It is a really good app and I would recommend downloading.

Superimpose with Ford F.

By: Jeeweon and Andie

Ford did his presentation on the app called Superimpose. He explained how to edit pictures. He showed us how to put a head on someone else's body. He put a famous basketball player's head on a famous football player's body. This app is useful for making our 60 second recap project for Mrs. Conway's class. It can also be useful in art classes.

Here are some examples of student work:

Photo Editing with Superimpose

By Banks M. and Trey D.

This week in Mrs. Conway's class we are doing a 60 second movie or book recap. One of the apps we had the option to use was Superimpose. Superimpose is a great app to use. You can mask, insert filters, and blend images together.

Since we use this app all the time, Mrs. Conway asked us to teach it to our fourth period class.

After we got done teaching the class we made every student take a picture of themselves and put an animal head on their face. Here are some examples of their work.

Anonymous Goat Boy Anonymous unicorn on the Great Wall of China
Anonymous koala on a plane Anonymous Yoda

We ran into a problem when the app cost 99 cents. So we found a free version and we made it work. The class learned a new tool which you can use for many different kinds of projects.
