General Instructions:

Before You Publish Your Mini-Movie -

* Play through your movie from start to finish making sure you are happy with it. * Remember to include your contact details or web site address if you would like to be contacted. * Either delete or modify anything that needs to be fixed. * Spell check each title that you have added. Spelling mistakes are not something you want to be remembered for. * Preview the movie again. It's a good idea to do this by enlarging the viewing screen to full size.

Where To Publish Your Mini-Movie -

* Go to the video sharing site of your choice and open an account. It is quick, free and easy to do. * Follow the instructions. * Type in your username and password when prompted. Upload the video/s that you have saved onto your computer. (This may take quite a while depending on the speed of your connection etc) * When it's done, and the site you have uploading to has converted the files, you'll be able to press play to view your mini-movie on that site, get a code to embed it on to your own site and let all your friends know that it's there so they can see it too.
