The mystery of movie making made simple: There’s an app for that


You can use iMovie to create fun movie trailers that will work as commercials for your library, an individual program or your SRP.  Here’s a tutorial on how to use it.



  1. I received an iPad for Christmas and immediately downloaded iMovie to try out these kind of projects.

    Before school went back in session, I got my teens involved in making a “commercial” for our department's winter programs. They had fun AND learned some filmmaking skills. Plus they got creative control over a product meant to advertise to their peers.

  2. Emily, that is awesome. I love hearing these types of success stories.
