G W Zimmerman Week 4 Weekly Summary

Week 4 Fueled by peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, vast quantities of black coffee, and one or two adult libations (dirty martinis) I powered through this week. I refused to get frustrated by software and programs that were not senior citizen friendly. Years ago when […]

Where My Shoes Took Me

Where My Shoes Took Me

This four-star assignment was great fun. It provided me with significant challenges and opportunities to excel.


I took the video while out on my 0600 morning walk with my pup Nelly. I used my iPhone to record two separate video clips. It took me no time at all to airdrop the two videos from my iPhone to my iPad. Initially I attempted to use iMovie’s to work with the video and to download the video that I produced into Vimeo. That was an abject failure.

I then decided to email the finished iMove video to my Sony laptop where I had installed MovieMaker. I ran into file size issues and that do not work.

I went back to plan A and using iMovie’s I was able to create two short videos that I was able to email to my laptop.

The process of manipulating the movies using MovieMaker and combining them was relatively seamless and I found the add title and credits function easy to understand and use. I then ran into another real-world block that stymied me for a number of hours. I could not get Vimeo to download my video project file.

Perseverance and dumb luck pays off. I  discovered, while doing my other video assignment, that by saving my movie to the Apple iPhone “File>Save Movie>Apple iPhone” in MovieMaker I was able to save the movie as an MPEG-4 that Vimeo voraciously sucked up.

Pretty darn cool.
