Singing to a Greener Tune – UNEP Environment & Music Initiative Report

Students,

This report is four years old already, so the lists must be much longer by now of green companies, festivals, and bands that want to make a festival green and sustainable.

United Nations Environment Program & Music Initiative

Some simpletons have excluded this possibility.

Don’t be one of them.
If you think music education and the environment are separate issues, then read the report and comment bellow.

Be the positive change instead of the danger.

Green screen movie-making Part 5

Students,

It’s not really part 5, but there really is a lot to learn with video editing.

We have found out that putting a background into iMovie FIRST works best. Then adjust the length of time to match the time of your video. Drag and drop your video onto the backdrop. That should prevent any weird overlaps.

This guy has has great tips.
