Hinduism and Buddhism Video Project: Next Steps

Finding Images to Accompany Your Text  Once you get 'script approval,' you get to move on to the next step: Finding images or pictures to accompany the written text for each of your slides. First, create a folder in your Downloads folder to host your images, preferably named "Hinduism and Buddhism Pictures." Then, search for images related to each of your statements about Hinduism and Buddhism. When you locate an image you like, make sure you open the highest quality version of it and then save it (using alt click) and then 'save as,' select Downloads, and choose your designated folder.  Next, name the pic (e.g., reincarnation.jpg).  

Getting Started with WeVideo  Before you get to start making your WeVideo, you need to finish your script of written statements about Hinduism and Buddhism and find and download the accompanying images. Once you've completed these tasks, you're ready to start making your movie. Watch a brief overview of WeVideo below to get oriented.  

Next, check out this more detailed tutorial on how to use WeVideo. 

Next steps: login to WeVideo, create a new video project, upload your images, add your text, choose a theme and music, and you are on your way. Please ask if you need help. I can't wait to see your creations!  Be creative and have fun!
