I was using Movie Talk with the Super Bowl commercials today, and I was getting frustrated at constantly moving back and forth from my computer to pause it. I also felt like we were wasting some time by re-watching every commercial in order to pause at some points. After school, I did some thinking and researching for a better way. I think I found one. I made Power Point presentations for each commercial and included screen shots of all the places I wanted to pause. Now we can watch the video through once and then go back and flip through slides of various scenes. It should flow much smoother. I imagine I’ll use this technique often with Movie Talk clips that are on the computer. Creating the slides was easier than I expected. It was just a matter of using the “print screen” key to capture screen shots and then pasting them onto a Power Point slide. Below are the files I used. Feel free to use them. The files are a bit large.
