Green Screen Movie FX
This app is simple to use and while it doesn't create perfect quality videos they are good enough to impress students and their parents.
Lesson Idea 1
Lesson Idea 1
- Have students write a news report and interview script as if they were filming live from the scene of the event. As part of our Weather Unit, students had to report live from the scene after a significant weather event e.g. tornado, flood, hail storm etc.
- Students then record the news broadcast/interview in front of a green or blue screen (these colours work best). We simply used bulletin board paper pinned onto our back wall for our first attempts and have since bought some green material.
- Once students have recorded their video they open the Green Screen Movie FX app. They can use to backgrounds supplied with the app, but there are rather limited, or they can upload their own FX. We simple videoed a clip for the length of time of the news report.
- Once the FX is loaded in, you can create your movie by starting a new project. Import your main video in first. Remove the background by selecting the chroma key colour. You can select more than one colour, which helps if you have dark and light patches on your background.
- Once the background is removed, add the FX. You will then need to move the FX behind the main video. Once this is done, all your need to do is compose the video and then export it to your photo roll.
Here are some example Weather reports using the Green Screen Movie FX app.
