I am making a movie with imovie 11 obviously. I have completely edited my movie, music and all, yet i just want to add one more blank title screen and a voiceover at the very beginning. I know how to do this. However, when I want to add this, I can't seem to move the entire 5 minute project over, it just adds it to the music, which I already have perfectly adjusted to my clips.

Help me move the entire clips over or add something to the beginning, please?

    It sounds like you have your music set up as a background track. That means the music will "float" and be independent of the video. The alternative is to Pin your music to a frame of video. When you do this, the music stays with the frame, and does not float. You can do this in two ways. When you first drag it in, just drop it on a frame of video. It will show up as a ribbon under the video thumbnails. Or, you can drag the background track and pin it to a frame of video.

    [This Tutorial shows two of the methods.|]

    [Also see this tutorial for how to pin background tracks to a frame|]

    These tutorials are from iMovie 08, but the basics are the same.
