Media management encompasses the organization of media assets from research and writing through sharing and archiving. Below are some best practices for keeping track of files as you work on your project.
We recommend creating a shared Box folder to store all your digital assets. You can share this folder with the members of your group and your professor and TA. iMovie files do not save on box without creating a zip file. See the instructions below for how to backup your iMovie library.
You can also purchase a small 16gb USB drive to save files and move your project file around between computers. You can specify the location and name of the library/project prior to starting your project and set it to your groups shared USB drive so you can edit on any computer. For help, see Starting Your Project below for step by step instructions.
