One the assessment tasks I like to set my students at second year, rather than presentation or pitch, is a standalone presentation.This can use standalone functionality in Prezi or Powerpoint.However I like to encourage my students to actually make a video, challenge themselves technically to communicate effectively to the audience.My assessment brief state the presentation can be any genre.
Vintagio enables students to easily make a silent video, provides the functionality to record, edit and publish the films in formats from 20’s, sepia to 70’s yellow tinged footage.The app equally supplies appropriate and a choice of period soundtracks for each film effect.The pro editing facility is excellent you can:
·add footage film, photos, to the timeline
·add text cards (however you cannot change size of text, little annoying, despite change font)
·add transition of fade in or out at varying speeds
·move footage along the timeline using drag drop
·trim and split footage
·duplicate, reverse, flip, and change the speed of footage
Finally you can share the video to array of social media You Tube, Twitter, Facebook, Cinemagram and mobile device camera roll.It is a just a simple app to use and quite effective.
