I updated from iMovie 9 to iMovie 11 when I updated my OS 10.7

Customer Question

I updated from iMovie 9 to iMovie 11 when I updated my OS 10.7 (Lion) up to 10.10 (Yosemite). Apparently, there were some significant changes in the two versions of the IMovie apps and (after it asked for me to "update"), it appears that the timelines are no longer there, and the source files have exclamation marks?
The sources for the footage came from iPhoto (on existing laptop drive) and external drives which are connected. I am more familiar with Final Cut 7 (can access on other computer), where I could figure out way to "reconnect media" or whatever...However, in this case I am really confused what happened between the two applications and OS when I upgraded (as detailed above).
It was a lot of work to originally import all the various footage under a project name then, I spent many hours editing into a timeline. I recall "finalizing" one for export, but was no where near completed on the organization and edit.
Please advise.
Thank you,
