Hi, I am Abba Shapiro, and welcome to Creating a Sports Highlight Reel with iMovie. In this course, we are going to take a look at some advanced techniques in iMovie that you can use to make an exciting sports highlight movie. We will start with some specific editing strategies. We will kick off the sports movie with a quick action to get the viewer's attention. Next, we will use an interview with one of the players to add structure and focus to the story.
