STEP FIVE

Now it’s time for your part as a reporter. You’ll want to write four sound bites - one to set up the story, two to advance the story, and one to sign off. Use the set-up sound bite to introduce your student to viewers. Use the next two to provide info about the job economy for recent grads. Use the last one to end on a hopeful or resilient note.

STEP SIX

To put it together, open Videolicious. Select your supporting shots in Step 1 in the order that matches your soundbites. In Step 2, import your soundbites in the order you want them to play.

Play back your soundbites, and tap your supporting shots to follow them.
You can tap supporting shots over your reporter sound bites to give it a voice-over effect
