We created this 1 minute video to highlight the threat to American democracy and an upcoming STOP THE COUP 2025 rally on January 27th at the Heritage Foundation in Washington DC. This blog explains how we created a video in less than two hours.

Video storyline: How people in Germany, Poland and Israel are standing up against the tyranny of a right wing extremist minority. How the Women's March galvanized progressives across the country. The MAGA scheme funded by billionaires to install Trump as a dictator. How STOP THE COUP 2025 is mobilizing support against the dark money funded Heritage Foundation's PROJECT 2025.

Video editing with iMovie

iMovie is easy to use. Just upload the video clips, graphics and soundtracks you'd like to use. Assemble them in the sequence you want them to appear (kind of like Lego bricks). Specify the amount of time each clip should appear for. Define how one clip should transition to the next clip. Add title slides. Choose the quality of your video and publish it. The video appears as an MP4 file on your laptop. Upload it to YouTube or Vimeo. That's all there is to it!
