Alas, YouTube© has blocked my video. But that’s okay because Vimeo™+© is now supporting my school project. I have the utmost respect for an artist’s work, and would never use content without attribution or for commercial use. I didn’t want to remove the Beatles’ song because it works well with my film (and I love the song). The video isn’t even that great, but the hype surrounding it has become interesting and controversial!
Making an instructional video is challenging and time consuming. It is also a lot of fun! However, the content of the film almost becomes secondary to its production. The video is part of a digital assignment in the Provincial Instructor Diploma Program at Vancouver Community College. The criteria was to highlight a strategy used to solicit student feedback on the instructional process. I chose to feature online instructor feedback forms with the help of Survey Monkey. I made the video using QuickTime® on my 2011 MacBook Air® and iMovie®. I uploaded the video to YouTube©. I guess EMI® isn’t happy with me using a Beatles’ song because YouTube instantly sent me a warning and threatened to block my video! I am disputing YouTube’s decision under the ‘fair dealing exception’ in the Copyright Act because my video is for educational purposes only. I hope my dispute holds, and I hope you enjoy my amateur production. Please keep in mind that I’m a dental assistant and a fledgling educator, and not a film maker.
I am in the midst of the fifth course in the Provincial Instructor Diploma Program at Vancouver Community College. The course is Media Enhanced Learning; I’ve been creating instructional documents and posting them online, and you will see them on my PIDP 3240 page once I’ve completed the course. However, I want to share my video on Using Copyright Protected Images in Education. Creating media is very time-consuming, but super fun because I love technology. The 5 minute video that I produced using the stock software (QuickTime and iMovie) on my old and reliable 2011 MacBook Air took me 10 hours to make; this included doing research on using copyrighted material, writing a script, filming my segments, and editing. I now have a sincere and increased appreciation for the work involved in videography. Enjoy the video! I hope it clarifies the use and reproduction of internet images.
