Today a group of us went to a green screen workshop; it was led Mitch and Steve who went us through the basics of green screen production. They showed us their room with all the lights and cameras and a big green screen painted on the wall and explained to us how to use them.
If you wear green and go in front of a green screen where your wearing green will go invisible. It was a really enjoyable lesson. I’m looking forward to going to more.
Today around 7 students for Yuille Park went down to BLX to learn about green screening from two men from MRL Media.
I all ready knew this but some others might not have known this but on the WIN news they use green screening.
The guys who were teaching us about green screening were Steve and Mitch.
The first thing you need to do when you are about to film is to think about your background first.
And you also need to get the lighting right or else when you shoot the video or movie it will look very dull.
Always face the camera the right way because if you’re trying to make someone small or tiny if you put the camera on the ground facing up the person will look like a giant but if you put the camera facing down the person will look tiny.
And the last part have fun because if you don’t have fun whats the point of doing it but if you have fun the audience will have fun watching it.
Today at 11am, 8 people from Yuille Park went to BLX for a work shop on green screening. When we arrived there Wendouree Primary were out the front. We went in to the green screening room, then we all sat on a seat. Steve and Mitch introduced themselves then Mount Blowhard arrived and we started the workshop. We learnt about the green screen and the correct lighting for using the green screening also the problem with shadows on the screen.
