Green Screen Experiment-2012


In our classroom we have one wall covered with a fabric green screen:

Do you know why we have a green screen? We want to make a lot of movies in our classroom this year, and we might want to use special effects in some of them. If you film in front of a green screen you can superimpose the video onto another picture or video to make special effects. Last week we took some sample video to test our green screen for the first time this year.

Some students in our class acted out different emotions, and we edited the video to put some nature shots behind it. All of the background video came from

The lighting and position of the camera is very important when you make a green screen video. We can tell that we need to make some adjustments on our next project, because some of our actors were invisible or cut out of the picture!

Check out our experiment:

  3. Like we can talk about the desert .

  4. The next green screen video should be about the third graders all doing a play for the Internet!

  21. This is such a great idea for the third graders! I think a fun video idea would be seeing the students in different countries and learning about their culture. Keep up the great work!

  22. Dear Mrs. Hamman’s class,

    We think you did really well on the green screen experiment. We think it was cool.

    We think you should study dinosaurs and then make a green screen movie in prehistoric time. You could also study about volcanoes and put them in the prehistoric time setting.

    What kind of camera did you use for this experiment?

    Your friends,

  30. Your video was funny. I like your backgound of your video. I like it when you made funny moves like when you did your ranning.

  31. That is a great idea. In my classroom we are doing something a little similar but not with a green screen and we are not doing a picture. We use a still picture to make our blue screen.
