Teaching iMovie in the lab in between writing

Today I had the chance to teach iMovie to Aysha Jamali, a recent  college graduate who is interested in a career in journalism. I went over the basics of the program, hopefully imparting enough for her to be able to put together a video with the program once she has footage to edit.

Editing video is something I enjoy and the iMovie program is a pretty good tool. It really doesn’t take long at all to learn how to get started, so if you’re interested in picking up another skill come on by the Community Media Lab at SPARK East in Downtown Ypsilanti. Someone is here 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays and I am specifically there from 12:30 to 4 p.m. Wednesdays.

Before Aysha came by, I wrote a follow up story on the burglary of a licensed marijuana growing center that occurred in Pittsfield Township. The suspect who was arrested at the scene after an alarm went off has been arraigned on charges. He is accused of trying to steal nearly $40,000 worth of marijuana.

Before I left the lab for the day, I had time to write about another in a string of indecent exposures in Ann Arbor area parks. This time a jogger and canoeist both saw a man, completely naked, in the woods near the Huron River in the Furstenberg Nature Area. A flasher was also seen by canoeists in the same area on Memorial Day.
