This session will walk you through the steps necessary to shoot a production (still photo shoot and/or video recording) using the green screen technique.

Extended Abstract

Finding interesting ways to evaluate, reflect and report on work and projects can be tricky. Many students struggle to engage with the reflection properly as it is often a dry, unentertaining end to any unit or project but there are lots of great learning opportunities when you use green screen effects in the classroom.
Green screens can be used to display virtually any image as part of your presentation conveying a simulated context or location. This session will walk you through the steps necessary to shoot a production (still photo shoot and/or video recording) using the green screen technique. We'll cover every aspect of planning and setting up properly for best results. You'll also learn when to use this technique, how to light the screen, how to set up your camera/mobile device properly, and how you can use your iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch as a professional teleprompter for ultimate mobility. We'll even explore some of the software options and apps available.
We will review all things you should endeavor to do when filming your footage. In order for your green screen movie to look as good as it should.
Learning Goals:
- Learn what green screens can do
- Light, prepare, and manage staged scenes before a green screen using the 3-Point lighting technique.
- Produce and film scenes that are properly lit and blocked against a green screen background using the Listec Promptaware Plus mobile app as teleprompter.
- Manipulate filmed scenes and chroma-key out the background using software and mobile apps for the iPad (Green Screen by Do Ink).
