Sample Files for Making a Movie

We will practice making a movie using the sample files. The following can be used as narration or titles for the slides. This folder contains picture, movie, map, and music files for making a practice movie. The theme of this movie is the geology & ecology of California's Sierra Nevada Mountains, focusing on the region surrounding Mammoth Lakes.

Introduction - The Sierra Nevada is the largest mountain range in California, stretching 650 km from Tehachapi Pass in the south to Fredonyer Pass in the north. The crest runs along the eastern edge of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, and most of the rain and snow fall to the west of the crest, giving rise to the Sacramento and San Joaquin Rivers. This video focuses on a geologically diverse region of the Sierra Nevada Mountains near the town of Mammoth Lakes.
