None of these resources have been checked, used, confirmed, etc. Check them out for yourselves. These were mostly the result of Googling the web and reporting back the results. We use Pinnacle Studio Ultimate from Corel, but that is a paid for software package.
If you know of some great resources, email firstname.lastname@example.org and put "MSFC Resources" in the subject line.
NOTE: Any links are just recommendations from resources we found online, unless they say they are made by us.
Introduction to the MSFC by Director Tom Bickford (Google Slide Show).
Storyboarding your video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NPrkxj2MyZI (13 minutes)
Creative Commons website:
Use their search feature to find material
Also suggest you search Google (or other search engine) and include "creative commons" to see what is available. For example:
Searched YouTube for "space video creative commons" and found a number that list them as CC appropriate videos. Of course search for whatever topic you are working on.
Free audio libraries:
https://stock.adobe.com/ Adobe has a wide range of media to use in your video, don't believe any of it is free, but all of it is licensable.
Gives a standardized order for your credits, adopt one of the options to fit your movie.
A number of video editors provide you with a title and credit editor feature and animation/transition edits to allow for the scrolling or other entry/exit features.
Also check out YouTube if you want to use Google Slides or Microsoft PowerPoint to create your own scrolling credits using those products. Both of those allow you to export as a video and that allows you to then incorporate it into your video when you are editing your film.
A few videos from Kevin Stratvert. No endorsement, but we found these videos to be helpful.
