Presentation and Storage Tips
When your digital video projects are completed there are several options to consider. You can simply store your video on your computer but that takes up lots of hard drive space. You may want to purchase an external hard drive to store completed videos or videos in progress.
Digital videos can also be exported back to DV tape and then played on a TV through your DV camcorder. You can also transfer your video from a DV tape to a VHS tape by connecting your DV camcorder to a VCR. If you have the right hardware another option may be to burn your video onto a DVD or video CD.
If you would like to place a compressed version of your movie onto a web page iMovie gives you the option to export your movie to QuickTime, PC users have similar options. I find this a great way to share videos and have posted several of my students videos on my school's web site. You will find a link to those videos in the Art Education section of my web site, www.olejarz.com/arted. Examples of many of the projects discussed in this essay are posted on my school site.
Be sure to get proper permission to post videos on the web and/or present video on public access channels.
Depending on permission issues you may want students to use first names only in their videos and on their credits.
