Video Essay

I decided to do my video essay on a scene from “The Grinch,” a live-action movie. I picked a scene from this movie because it has always been one of my favorite movies, and it the editing, costume, set, different designs, colors, etc., have always been so interesting to me. I narrated my video using the appĀ iMovie, an apple software that allows you to edit videos complete with titles, transitions, music, voiceovers, and many more editing tools. The first step of editing my video was downloading the scene from The Grinch onto my camera roll and exporting it onto iMovie. After that, I started adding voiceovers to the part of the video that I wanted them on by splitting the entire video into sections, which allowed me to only have audio on particular parts of the scene. When I added a voiceover to the select clips, I muted the original audio so you could only hear the voiceover.


  1. I really liked how you didn’t cut out all the audio, but left it in when you were not speaking in your voice-over. That was really good work. Great job!
