How to make an End-of-the-Year Video Using iMovie

This year I LOOOVED how my End-of-the-Year picture video turned out! I had an accidental surprise when I realized I had been taking Live Photos all year and they worked so perfectly when I inserted them into iMove. The parents and students felt like they were right there in the classroom reliving our happy memories together.  And, I also may have watched the video over and over again remembering all the positive moments we had together this year.

Because I was so pleased with how mine turned out, I decided to creat a video tutorial for those who would like to make a nice keepsake for their students and parents as a gift. In this tutorial, I walk a beginner through all the “how-to” steps of making the memory video from beginning to end using iMovie.

As a free gift to you, I am giving away the month memory template graphics that I inserted between the pictures of each month.  Find those here.

Also, I mentioned I would share a list of music recommendations for your memory video. To access, click the picture below.

I hope you enjoy making your end of the year video and can take some valuable tips away from this tutorial.

    Thank you for the video tutorial and freebie! I just came across your resources as I was looking up an end of the year video. I noticed this was a recent post from this school year, so I was wondering how you were going to address March-end of the year because of the COVID school closure?

      Hi Alicia! Glad you enjoyed it and great question. During this time of remote learning I asked my parents to send photos of their children at work while at home, and I initially used these for our “digital class bulletin boards.” Then I pulled these photos for my end of the year video. If you weren’t able to collect photos, you could just skip those months or, if you have some time left before school is out for you, you could ask your students to send you a couple of photos. Hope all goes well for you! 🙂
