Check out the 1st post in this series explaining signing up for Apple Camp as well as our experiences on the first day.
We arrived on Day 2, iPads in hand with footage of monsters & Minecraft. Our leader gave an overview to the students of iMovie. We then headed to the Macs to upload our footage. The store had increased the staff ratio to assist with this, but it did take a little additional time for those with non-Apple products to move their footage onto the Macs.
Girl basically left her footage intact and just created an opening & closing scene. Boy enjoyed the opportunity to add the music he created utilizing Garage Band as well as editing the footage with special effects. Mom was impressed with how well the staff worked with the kids and encouraged them throughout the process. They also gave the kids plenty of time to be creative and work through all their options.
While they were editing another staff member gave the parents a demonstration on the “Parental Controls” for the Macs. Mom was quite impressed with all the options available: restrictions can be placed on length of time, time of day, websites, activities, etc.
The day closed with very child being given their finished iMovie on a flash drive wristband. Boy & Girl thought this was a fabulous bonus. We were invited to return on Saturday for a showing of all the movies.
