Green Gets You Everywhere!

If you could be anywhere, where would you go?

Using a green screen and a camera, you can go anywhere; or at least make it look you did.

When using a green screen a user can go anywhere, show anything, and do anything.

The idea is that students can take a video of themselves talking about anything and moving around freely. During the video they will always be in front of a green screen. Any images, colors, or videos can placed behind the child in the video replacing the green screen. So students can take a picture, record a video, develop an animation, or even capture a SMART Board presentation.

Students LOVE to see the before and after.
