Have you ever fancied doing some green screen (Chroma Key) video work in your school?

It is simply the process of replacing the existing background of a piece of video footage with an alternate image or video sequence.

Good examples of Chroma Keying in everyday life are News and Weather programs. News Readers often have either a dynamic background behind them, or film footage of a news room.

I have got lots of experience of using Green and Blue Screen effects in classrooms.  I can bring a portable Green Screen to your School, and show you how to shoot and edit video footage, so that your students can have interesting backdrops or dynamic moving video behind them as they act.

Create a Weather repot using a Greenscreen.

It doesn’t matter whether you have P.C’s or Macs in your Classroom I can show you how to  Green Screen using iMovie, Final Cut Pro/Express or Adobe Premier.
