Using creative videos in your school project

When you’re at school, you are faced with a lot of projects over the years. Often, they can become a bit repetitive, and even more so when you’re forced to watch your classmates give presentations on the same topics for every assignment that you’re given. This can also make it hard for your project to stand out.

Getting creative
Sometimes, your school project brief does not leave much room for creativity. In other projects, you may be asked to present your thoughts on a topic in whichever way you like. Most students tend to go for poster presentations, or they create a slideshow based on their research. While all of these ideas are likely to get you a decent mark, they aren’t exactly very creative.

Making a video
If you want to take your school project to the next level, we suggest creating a video online. Believe it or not, this is not as much work as you might think, and if done well, it will get you an amazing final grade. To make a creative video in your project, you don’t need expensive filming equipment and microphones. If you’ve got footage that you want to use or a smartphone with a microphone, you’ve got all the tools that you need to start filming.
The great news is that you don’t even need to pay to get editing software to make your video. Why not find out more about a downloadable video maker? This is free to download and offers all of the features that you need to get started on your project. There are plenty of themes for you to choose from, and if you want to add a soundtrack, you can. The software is easy to use and perfect for school projects.

What to film
If you can’t think of something to make a video about, why not make a film trailer? Another idea is to create a news report or to film yourself conducting an interview. Try to think of something totally out of the box and base it around the topic of your project. If it’s a science project, you could even film yourself making it and then demonstrating it in the video.

Our verdict
Overall, we think that using a creative video in your school project is a great idea. It will impress your teachers and your friends as they watch the video that you created. Learning how to create a video will also help you to develop new skills that you can use next time you want to make a video. You might even be able to teach your friends how to do it. School projects will never be the same again once you get involved in this, and your teachers will be so impressed.
