  • Wrote the script telling both the big picture and also intimate stories


Technology

    • No money so . . .

    • No new hardware or software for production


Technology1

Oh, and by the way . . .

The presentation should include

      • Windows XP

      • Windows Media Player 10

      • Decent PC (P4, 1.7Ghz or better, 512 Mb)

  • Generate movie


Technology conclusion

Technology - Conclusion

  • Low cost

  • Quick to learn

  • Easy to use

  • Limited – but it did what we needed

  • Creates a remarkably professional looking product.

  • The technology should NOT be the stumbling block in this process!
