• blog post 3, read and/or watch some tutorial on the video editing software you selected; play with the software a bit; reflect on what you learned and how you learned it.

After spending several hours familiarizing myself with Windows Live Movie Maker, I’ve learned how to import video clips, create text effects, and apply some basic effects and transitions.  This was mostly through clicking around, since tutorials aren’t often helpful.  I made an 8 second long clip to test it out, but it doesn’t really have anything to do with the book I’m choosing, so it won’t be making an appearance.
