    You want to move iMovie, or the videos and projects?

    Then just move them and point iPhoto and iMovie to them.

    Use option click to select the library in iPhoto. iMovie, IIRC, lets you do it within the program itself; there should be other volumes showing up in the list of project, clips etc.

    Code:
    rm -rf "~/Movies"
    
    ln -s "path to the folder you wish to use" "~/Movies"
