    imovie

    import the video and then in the middle click on the shaded circle that says video adjustments. Then just drag the brightness.

    You can't just create light in a scene that never had light to begin with. The data just isn't there. You could try also increasing the contrast but I doubt that will help much.

    Ya he is right. Did you shoot this outside or inside and how dark is the original video. Normaly if you put too much brightness onto a dark clip, it won't look natural.

    less what do you mean?
    idk what to tell you if the original video is very dark.
    try messing around with the exposure, contrast, brightness, and saturation in imovie.

    it is something you can reshoot?
